Bonds, Junk Bonds

The Chief and Maddie kick off the show discussing Chicago Universities and their resistance against the recent push from students and faculty to allow the unionization of non-tenure-track professors. The Chief asks, what are students actually paying for? Maddie’s not content with the answer. Kevin Riordan, Kevin O’neill, and Kathy Dervin join in for a discussion of bonds and dividends. Stocks and Jocks friend Wolf Richter calls in at the top of the second hour to discuss his most recent article on on junk bonds.
