We’re back after our short break to get Mae married (finally!) and we’ve got a hot one. We’re talking Sam Bankman Fried (aka SBF) and his polycule of Effective Altruist friends at FTX and Alameda Research that just went bankrupt, stole a ton of money and may be crashing crypto.
If you haven’t heard about this story then listen now to understand the darker-than-usual depression from your crypto-enthusiast millennial nephew Thanksgiving.
We review a deep dive on SBF the person, how this may have been why Tom Brady and Gisele got divorced, Caroline Ellison and her really cursed Tumblr account, some finance stuff that tbh is a bit over our heads, why the guy who shut down Enron has been called in, and of course, continued discussion of Mae and Mark’s wedding. Oh and we discuss Qatar and the World Cup – yay sports!
We are also playing with having a full version (with more wedding content and a few other news stories) on our Patreon. That should be up later this week so if you’re feeling us – check us out there @risquebusinessnews
