Comedian v Economist

Equity Mates Media

Hosted by two brothers - Adam a comedian, Thomas an economist - this show will help you understand the world of money without the need for a calculator or dictionary. Easy to understand and jargon free. Adam will ask and Thomas will answer all those money questions you've pondered but never knew who to ask. From interest rates to GDP, trade wars to house prices, the world of economics has an impact on so many aspects of our everyday lives. This podcast will break it all down as Adam and "real life economist" Thomas guide you through how the world of money really works.
