This week episode hosts Dan Mikulskis and Mary Spencer are doing something a little different – we’re reviewing that classic Michael Lewis book of the 2008 crisis The Big Short. We’re joined by LCP's PR and Digital Marketing assistant Nisha Gogna as we discuss:

They discuss:

  • What really stands out reading the book, 12-13 years on from the crisis?
  • What’s similar, what’s different today?
  • What lessons have been learnt?
  • When Michael Lewis writes the investigate book of the 2020 crisis and coronavirus pandemic, what will some of the key plotlines be?
  • Who were our favourite characters from the book and the movie?
