Is a Biden win already priced in? One of our listeners wants to know — and if you’re not sure what “priced in” means, there’s an explainer on our smart speaker skill. Today we’ll talk about the markets, the economy and this election. Plus, listener questions about the lottery, virtual reality and why journalists use Twitter over Facebook. Oh, and a little Quibi talk.

Finally: We need your voice memos! Tell us what you think of the show or ask a question for Kai Ryssdal and Molly Wood to answer! Here’s how to do it.
