Episode 17: Interview With an Options Trader, Part 1

Kevin lives in Gilbert, Arizona, and you’ve never heard of him before. That’s because he’s one of an army of options traders living among us — men and women who are buying puts and selling calls and doing spreads (nothing kinky, as far as we can tell) and making money and managing risk in unique ways.
