Journalist and bestselling author Michael Lewis (Moneyball, The Big Short, Flashboys) talks to Jacob Weisberg about his new podcast, AGAINST THE RULES, where he explores the corrosion of fairness in courts of law, Wall Street, sports, and the art world—to understand what it has done to our society, mostly without our noticing. The seven-episode season takes listeners from student-loan call centers to the courts of Uzbekistan to the new trading hubs of Wall Street (they’re in New Jersey). He speaks with a US Senator and the coach of the Golden State Warriors; the architect of the 9/11 settlement fund and a man who got rich off the 2008 financial crisis.
