A special solo-episode with J.B. Waggoner covering The Big Short. Adapted from the best-selling book “The Big Short” by Michael Lewis (“Moneyball”), as well as directed, by Adam McKay (more commonly know for his Anchorman and Talladega Nights collaborations with Will Ferrel). I talk about the movie, viewing from the outside in on the crisis in 2008, how the movie breaks some walls down with the audience, and how I know next to nothing about Wall Street and the financial investing markets/housing markets/any markets at all.
Links to things we talked about:
- The Big Short (2015): IMDB/RottenTomatoes/Trailer
- Adam McKay’s New Show: Surprisingly Awesome
- Steve Carell on the real Mark Baum
- The Big Short Book (Amazon)
