#20: Booms, busts and bicycles - Dr. William Quinn (QUB)
I am joined by Dr. William Quinn, lecturer in finance at Queen’s University Belfast to discuss stock market bubbles. We go through the ‘British bicycle mania,’ big shorts and savvy bond villains who have resorted to shady stock market trades.
Some of you have enquired about ways to support the podcast and help cover the costs. I was able to acquire a small amount of funding to cover some of the start-up costs, but there has been a growing gap being filled by my own pocket. If you'd like to chip in, I’ve set up a Patreon page at
There is no obligation. In general, I'm happy to cover the costs but hopefully the patreon can keep them at a sustainable level. The main podcast feed is a public good that will always be free.
As ever, , if you get a chance, a 5* review on Apple podcasts helps spread the word. Thanks!
