What an amazing year! With over 60 hours of listening time recorded this year, we had some remarkable guests and gained tremendous insights. Discussions ranged from behavioral finance to the deconstruction of economic data.

Awards ceremonies for the first time the DJIA hit 20,000 and a good amount of content related to the hot cryptocurrency markets.
