    Tensions between airlines and regulators just in time for Memorial Day travel

    Higher fares, crowded airports, cancellations and delays have done little to dampen the appetite for air travel going into the summer months. Airlines say they’ve done a lot to ramp up for the strong demand but are being hampered by a shortage of air traffic controllers. Plus, a pulse check on Houston’s clothing resale market and a new device in Australia to help farmers save livestock during drought.

    When crypto enters campaign finance

    In this election cycle, campaigns are looking to get your votes — and political contributions — any way they can. The Donald Trump campaign recently announced it will accept campaign contributions in cryptocurrencies, joining independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. But there are nuances and transparency issues that come with such donations. Also on the show: a preview of the economic data-heavy week ahead and an investment in hurricane forecasting.

We hear some takeaways from her testimony. Then, the leaders of China, South Korea and Japan have vowed to speed up negotiations to reach a free trade deal. Also: What would persuade more of us to take up electric vehicles?

    Will the Ticketmaster antitrust lawsuit make it easier for people to get tickets?

    Will the Ticketmaster antitrust lawsuit make it easier for people to get tickets?

    The Justice Department is suing Live Nation, the parent company of Ticketmaster, saying that it violated antitrust law. Live Nation controls at least 80% of box office sales at major concert venues, and owns or controls more than 60% of large amphitheaters in the U.S. Yet we may not know the upshot of the lawsuit for consumers for quite some time. Also: a look inside the wide world of indie video games.

    A major step toward paying college athletes

    The NCAA, the governing body for college sports, and the five biggest athletic conferences have agreed to a landmark $2.8 billion settlement of a class-action suit. If approved by a judge, it’ll means that schools would be allowed to share revenues with student athletes going forward. Then, we’ll have a conversation about capitalism and activism in college athletics. And later: Will you be “quiet vacationing” this holiday weekend?

    Google’s laying a subsea fiber-optic cable connecting Africa and Australia

    From the BBC World Service: Google is expanding its network infrastructure, with an aim of enhancing internet connectivity and competing in the cloud computing market. Then, days after President Biden imposed higher tariffs on EVs from China, Elon Musk says he doesn’t support them — contradicting a warning he made back in January that Chinese carmakers would “demolish” global competitors if there were no trade barriers.

Burn volume

Please keep normal tone, very annoying

Great up to date information

Required listening if you want facts about markets and economy without any spin. I do wish Leanna Burn would would pick a volume though - she starts each sentence with a shout and ends with a whisper - difficult to listen to on headphones.

Random things put together, undiversified sources, many ads and bias news

The podcast feels pleasant and friendly at first but over time, I realize it is very biased, and it start to feel like they put together a lot of random things, so many important news are usually missing if you listen to a diverse sources of news. Commentators keep coming from one sources if it is about economics. They also have so many ads that keep popping up many times during a 10 min show. I don’t think I will keep listening to this podcast.
