Feel brighter every day with our 20-minute pop-biz podcast. The 3 business news stories you need, with fresh takes you can pretend you came up with — Pairs perfectly with your morning oatmeal ritual. Hosted by Jack Crivici-Kramer & Nick Martell.

    🏴‍☠️ “That’s huuuuge shrinkage” — Walmart’s $2.5B theft. Fanatics’ Yankees strategy. AutoZone’s grandma car.

    🏴‍☠️ “That’s huuuuge shrinkage” — Walmart’s $2.5B theft. Fanatics’ Yankees strategy. AutoZone’s grandma car.

    We just calculated that Walmart lost $2.5B this year from shoplifting. The sports apparel brand Fanatics just hit a $31B valuation because it’s borrowing the business model of the New York Yankees. And AutoZone’s stock just hit an all-time high because America’s cars are acting like America’s grandmas.

    🤖 “A robot wrote today’s episode” — OpenAI’s chatbot brain. Hot Pockets’ smeals. Slack’s rich vs. king.

    🤖 “A robot wrote today’s episode” — OpenAI’s chatbot brain. Hot Pockets’ smeals. Slack’s rich vs. king.

    ChatGPT is a new artificial intelligence chatbot that you can ask any question and it will give a human answer… so we asked it to write today’s TBOY episode. The hottest-growing food right now is “smeals” (snackable meals) — Smeals are a case study in “Category Design.” And Salesforce just lost another key executive (the founder of Slack) because CEO Marc Benioff can be rich or king (but you can never be both).

    🍸 “Cocktail of the Year” — Espresso Martini’s gateway drink. College Football’s playoff penalty. Owen Corning’s coziest stock.

    🍸 “Cocktail of the Year” — Espresso Martini’s gateway drink. College Football’s playoff penalty. Owen Corning’s coziest stock.

    Orders for the Espresso Martini quadrupled in 2022, because it’s the ultimate gateway drink for the cocktail curious. College Football’s tripling the size of the playoffs, but it’s facing an ancient growth risk: Dilution. And just as it gets too cold, Owens Corning is a pure-play cozy stock.

    ⌚ “Rolex or Folex?” — Rolex’s used Rolexes. The B-21 Bomber’s anti-war plane. Netflix’s preview club.

    ⌚ “Rolex or Folex?” — Rolex’s used Rolexes. The B-21 Bomber’s anti-war plane. Netflix’s preview club.

    Rolex is launching its own certified pre-owned Rolex business because the trend is your friend. Northrop Grumman just unveiled the most expensive bomber plane in history, but it may end up being the cheapest, if you think about it. And feedback is a gift, so Netflix is expanding its not-so-secret Preview Club (no, we didn’t get invited either).

    Finally, the price of 1 thing in the economy has fallen — The Chicken Wing. FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried is accused of fraud, yet he just sat down for an interview in a Shakespearean drama. And Loop just made a major hire for its baby gear rental company, but it has us wondering the ancient question: Rent or Buy?

    🎣 “Fishing Mecca” — Bass Pro Shops’ hotel. Tesla’s brand reversal. The Railroad Grinch.

    The 7th biggest pyramid on Earth is actually in Tennessee, it’s a hotel, and it’s owned by Bass Pro Shops. Everyone's talking about Twitter and Elon, but what’s going on at Tesla? 3 bad things. And whether or not the Grinch steals Christmas comes down to 1 thing: The Railroad Strike.

Short, fun, entertaining, and educational!

Nick and Jack have hooked me from the Snacks Daily days. HYHYSD? I literally asked that to a couple of my co-workers just for fun lol. I listen to this podcast every morning (Monday-Friday) on my way to work, while I’m jogging, or checking emails. It’s interesting to hear news about the companies you own stock in. They give insights on why a stock price rose or fell so much. They explain things pretty well and they do it in a fun and entertaining way. The podcasts are not super long so if I missed one the day before, I can play it B2B (back to back). I love the fun facts at the end of the shows. Great job guys!

Surface-level news that sacrifices quality for quip

Stories tend to be extremely surface-level and hosts fail to provide in depth explanations behind business or economic developments. For example, a recent episode about chicken prices and inflation relies on a quote from Tyson to explain rising chicken prices, disregarding broader context like worker shortages due to lack of COVID protections or impacts of industrial chicken farming. Hosts conclude that now that Tyson has confirmed a “healthy” chicken supply, there will be low chicken prices for consumers, calling it a “win-win.” An ignorant conclusion given that the evidence relies on a company with huge interest in a positively-spun story. Not impressed with the hosts’ ability to ignore macroeconomic factors for the sake of delivering quippy news stories.
