By now you’re probably familiar with our segment, Long and Short. It’s when we borrow some jargon from the world of finance and appropriate it for our own purposes.

Long as in betting on something, like a stock.

Short as in betting against it.

This week we bring you a very special edition focused on culture. 

Rico and Brendan from the Dinner Party Download weigh in on what’s in and what’s out in pop culture.

Listen to the player above to find out why Brendan is short on Rock n’ Roll and why Rico thinks director Jeff Nichols could be our next Steven Spielberg.

As a nonprofit news organization, our future depends on listeners like you who believe in the power of public service journalism.
