Are your points in danger? ft. Brian Kelly, The Points Guy
Congress is considering legislation on credit cards, and the future of your credit card rewards could hang in the balance. Paul Weinstein, a senior fellow at the Progressive Policy Institute and Brian Kelly, founder of The Points Guy website, join the podcast to discuss a proposed bill that would regulate US credit cards.  We discuss the guts of how credit cards work, why Americans are used to getting points or airline miles back on every purchase but Europeans are not, and how proposed legislation to lower credit card interchange fees would impact banks, airlines, merchants, consumers, and ultimately your points balance.

Why is the public down on the economy? ft. Will Stancil
The economic picture seems bright - GDP and wages are up, unemployment is low, and inflation is falling. So why is public sentiment about the economy intensely negative? Will Stancil joins the podcast to discuss the 'vibecession'. We cover why economic indicators have divorced from consumer confidence, the role of social media in driving doom narratives, and the politics behind why everything feels so relentlessly negative.

Should Joe Biden drop out? ft. Nate Silver
Joe Biden's polling numbers have Democrats worried. Some commentators have even started publicly wondering - should Joe Biden drop out and not run again in 2024? Nate Silver joins the podcast to discuss the factors around whether or not Biden should run for re-election. How much trouble in Biden in? Is Biden's age really a problem? Would Democrats actually have a better shot at winning if Biden steps aside, or is that wishful thinking? We discuss all this and more one year out from the 2024 election. Got questions?
