Humped, Eh?

March 9, 2016

With a strong debate performance tonight and a Michigan upset in his pocket, can Bernie really turn the tide in the Democratic primary? Thoughts in the comments, por favor.

 

Today on Stand Up!

Josh Brown is the CEO and co-founder of Ritholtz Wealth Management, blogger behind The Reformed Broker, and author of several books on Wall St. and investing. Today, he joined Pete to go over his latest piece for Forbes, “The Most Horrendous Lie on Wall Street.” Spoiler Alert: the lie involves poor opinions of middle class investors.

We’ve been more-than-mildly interested in the story of astronaut Scott Kelly, who just returned last week from 340 days aboard the International Space Station. His journey was a science experiment about the physiology of space travel, and his metrics will be compared with those of his Earthbound brother. We couldn’t help but wonder about the psychological side of those things, too, so Pete invited Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at University of California-San Francisco and author of “Humans in Space: The Psychological Hurdles,” Dr. Nick Kanas to join us and break down a space breakdown.

Finally, Pete welcomed Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and national security columnist for Slate.com, Fred Kaplan. In his new book, “Dark Territory: The Secret History of the Cyber War,” Kaplan traces government-backed hacking and cyber warfare from its age of innocence in the Reagan-era to its emergence as a primary global military tool. Scary stuff, but wildly entertaining. Here’s Fred Kaplan explaining how the movie WARGAMES inadvertantly revealed America’s cyber-weaknesses.
