2013 is in our rearview mirrors, and what a year it was. There were a lot of financially-relevant happenings in the year gone by, and the gang reminisces. What happened in 2013, and how can that help us look at 2014? What will we be ready for when history repeats itself? Tune in for a rundown of a year’s worth of financial news and all of your favorite inside gags—as well as the announcement of contest winners. Who baits Jason with a bad chemistry reference? Who is on the receiving end of some computer trash talk? More importantly, who won some fabulous prizes for helping out the cast? Find out the answer to all of these questions and more on an extra-large episode of your favorite Magic podcast that will leave you asking, “Why do they keep talking about Aluren?” This is Brainstorm Brewery.
