Episode 61: Zombies, Zombie Traders and Zombie Banks Part 1

This episode is Part 1 of 2, which features your host, Rob Booker, speaking with a literal zombie expert, Dr. Kyle Bishop (aka “Dr. Walking Dead”) of Southern Utah University. In this first part, Rob and Kyle set up their discussion for Part 2 by covering some of the background of the zombie monster. They discuss some basic zombie trivia, and they talk about how America’s current, widespread fascination with zombies may have to do with a gut-check reaction to the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States. Rob and Kyle also talk about how when things get bad, we like to watch horror movies; the Greeks’ concept of catharsis, where you get to experience emotions vicariously in a safe manner; and the concept of inhumanity through selfishness.

All of this will set up this Wednesday’s episode, where Rob will apply these concepts to zombie banks, zombie nations and zombie traders — all sitting on top of piles of debt, feeding on each other. You’ve never heard another Traders Podcast episode quite like this one — so check out this show and remember to aim for the head!

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. We met Kevin just by pure luck, and he agreed to talk to us about the way he trades. In Part 1 of our interview, Kevin talks about how he got started, why he thinks that having a directional bias (picking a direction) for a financial instrument is a mistake, and much more.
