Disorderly Conduct with Alexis and Jesse #OWS

October 22, 2013


So there’s a new podcast called Disorderly Conduct which “explores finance without a permit” and is hosted by Alexis Goldstein, whom I met through her work on Occupy the SEC, and Jesse Myerson, and activist and a writer.

I was recently a very brief guest on their “In the Weeds” feature, where I was asked to answer the question, “What is the single best way to rein in the power of Wall Street?” in three minutes. The answers given by:

  1. me,
  2. The Other 98% organizer Nicole Carty (@nacarty),
  3. Salon.com contributing writer David Dayen (@ddayen),
  4. Americans for Financial Reform Policy Director Marcus Stanley (@MarcusMStanley), and
  5. Marxist militant José Martín (@sabokitty)

can be found here or you can download the episode here.

Occupy Finance video series

We’ve been having our Occupy Finance book club meetings every Sunday, and although our group has decided not to record them, a friend of our group and a videographer in her own right, Donatella Barbarella, has started to interview the authors and post them on YouTube. The first few interviews have made their way to the interwebs:

  1. Linda talking about Chapter 1: Financialization and the 99%.
  2. Me talking about Chapter 2: the Bailout
  3. Tamir talking about Chapter 3: How banks work

Doing Data Science now out!

O’Reilly is releasing the book today. I can’t wait to see a hard copy!! And when I say “hard copy,” keep in mind that all of O’Reilly’s books are soft cover.

    Amazon shows an October 30 release date for Doing Data Science paperback. Looking forward to reading it (in the tub and elsewhere).
