It has been years since the last podcast, and a lot has happened in the U.S. and the world during that time. Of course, we have all lived through the 2020 pandemic, and it isn’t over yet. I hope all my listeners have stayed safe and healthy, and that you haven’t suffered too much during this time.

In this episode, I want to share about a recent event that happened in the U.S. stock market. It was quite significant, and you may have heard about it on the news.

It has been called a David vs Goliath tale, pitting individual investors against billionaire hedge fund managers. To find out more about what has been going on, and how a $4 stock went all the way to $483/share in a few short trading days, listen to the newest podcast episode now.

This episode is full of useful vocabulary and great expressions.
