Financial trickery! Self-dealing! CDOs! On today's podcast, we return to the last days of the housing bubble. Our story: A group of bankers knew there were serious problems in the market for subprime mortgage investments. But rather than wind the business down, they sped it up -- prolonging the bubble, and ultimately making the crisis worse. Music from The Delays' "Long Time Coming."
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends. </div><div><br></div><div>An independent podcast from James Barr (@imjamesbarr) and Dan Hudson (@DanHudson).
