Making the world weirder... One podcast at a timE
WHEREVER YOU GET YOUR PODCASTS!
This week, we’re taking a look at a small, mostly overlooked film about the housing bubble crash of 2009 - Margin Call.
Why? First, because while a similar film called The Big Short was certainly good, Margin Call is more about the mechanics of what sank our economy and the kinds of people who made those decisions. Second, and more importantly, right now we’re on the brink of a major economic collapse and it pays to be mentally prepared for disaster.
With an all-star cast of players at the tops of their game, and a script that moves like a breeze through difficult technical economics, we three will tell you all the reasons you need to watch Margin Call on your next Amazon Prime binge. (Which, if you’re still under quarantine, probably starts in about 10 minutes.)
