“I’ll never forget the day I found out my sons were degenerates.”

Spencer Jakab of The Wall Street Journal joins Cole and Bill to discuss his book, The Revolution That Wasn't: GameStop, Reddit, and the Fleecing of Small Investors. Jakab’s work explores the GameStop saga and how the modern-day squeeze unraveled. The trio discusses the characters involved in the mania, the role smart phones played, how the financial industry underestimated the power of algorithmic social media, as well as the real winners and losers of it all.
