Show notes

In this evening edition of 9 to when? Mat discusses why employed people think businesses are important, Jamie attempts to explain what happens to sound when you turn a piano on its nose, and both of them agree (for once) on whether mixing untruths into business practice is ever a good thing.



Finance explained

Brilliant or bonkers?

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”

– Maya Angelou (“Maiya Angelo”)

“My dear, the real truth always sounds improbable, do you know that? To make truth sound probable you must always mix in some falsehood with it. Men have always done so.”

– Stepan Trofimovich in Demons by Fyodor Dostoevsky
