Every week, Marketplace Weekend guests go long and short on topics from the week’s news, stealing some financial terminology to bet on or against various things in the world of news and business.

This week we have Danyel Smith, culture lead for the Undefeated, and Marketplace’s own Andy Uhler go long on the future of Puerto Rico, the reboot of TV show “Roots” and the rise of edu-tainment, and short anyone who thinks Steph Curry is not currently dominating the planet.

To find out why, listen to the full interview in the player above.
