A great plug for a great program! I listen after work in the car every night on bloomberg1010 in nj. & if you can't get enough of Tom, since VIX hit 20 he's been on in the morning around 8:20-8:50am. Wish some of the credit stuff would die down so we can hear more of the yearly topic, which is food, series on rice & other pricing was really insightful.
