EP 82 Kyla Scanlon and the vibecession

Listen now on:



We have become fans of Kyla Scanlon over the last year for her videos explaining the economy and “what is going on”, especially in a way that connects to young people. She has a new book “In this Economy” that we *highly* recommend. Kyla is a rare personality that can both deeply understand what’s going on with the economy and can then communicate it in a way that really connects. This was a blast.

PSA: We had some internet difficulties so had to switch what we use to record.
