Episode #6: Gamers Rise Up

Download this episode

After discussing a wide array of blood-boiling topics – from Andrew Cuomo’s deadly incompetence with nursing homes, to the FBI getting off scot-free for their role in the “Russian collusion” hoax, and Black Lives Matter getting a Nobel Peace Prize nomination – Jacob and Eric tackle the big story of the day: The GameStop rebellion against Wall Street. They focus on the major socio-political implications of this Reddit-organized bucking of the financial system, including the furious response from Wall Street hedge fund managers, and how this is just the beginning of a new generation of the populist revolt against the political and economic establishment.
