David Kestenbaum and Robert Smith from Planet Money walked into a bar….I know it sounds like a joke, but they actually did….they walked into a comedy club and told really, really, really bad economist jokes. How did it go? What can we learn (except that economist jokes are so bad they’re AWESOME)? They’ll share the experience today.
In today’s headlines, investors are hoping for safety and yield at the same time…cake and eat, too? We weigh in. PK is also here with a segment about online health care. It’s the wave of the future….maybe….but does it work? He tried it out.
We also talk about Joe’s obsession with Peaky Blinders, take your letters….and lots more!
