Insightful and helpful

Ryan and Kate cut through the noise with refreshing & relevant questions. The reports on sports, vax prodct’n, last train from Wuhan and Zoom overload balance well with traditional financial headlines about WeWork, SoftBank and OPEC. I look fwd to the cast & discuss it w/ my 3 teens over dinner 3 times a week.
