Comedian Mark Thomas has decided that he’s had enough of not understanding the financial crisis and has embarked on a quest to discover the truth of our collective woe in a new show called “It’s the Economy, Stupid”. According to his website:

Mark Thomas

It’s The Economy Stupid” features satire and interviews with guests – thinkers, movers and shakers, academics, economists and even the odd banker. All line up to try and explain what happened and what we can do. From culling bankers to invading Jersey, it’s all up for grabs!

The first episode features nef‘s community finance expert and ex-equity trader Sargon Nissan. Listen to Mark and Sargon discuss everything from explosive mortgages to cristal champagne here. Surprisingly educational!
