The economy explained. Imagine you could call up a friend and say, "Meet me at the bar and tell me what's going on with the economy." Now imagine that's actually a fun evening.

Thank you for Reading Gatsby
I’m just about to start teaching The Great Gatsby, and I’m planning on directing my students to this podcast for a free, well-produced version of it. Love that you did this!
This is one of my most favorite podcasts! They just read the complete text of The Great Gatsby (one of my most favorite novels), with each host reading a chapter of the book. Such a treat and a welcome listen today.
Stick to finance
That’s what fascists say when they want you to stick to the lies they hear on Fox. Funny. Anyhoo.. this is good except I found all of your voices soooo irksome when you decided you should narrate Gatsby. Why? Just annoying voices with bad cadence.
