Wagering on elections is a lot like betting on sports. And in 2020, much of it is done on prediction markets — sites that offer prediction exchanges on political outcomes. Contributor Joe Virgillito has more on one prediction market and its potential role in the 2020 Democratic primary and beyond. He chats with Will Jennings, Head of Public Engagement at Predictit.org and Jeff Joseph, Editorial Director and Publisher of Luckbox Magazine and host of The Political Trade podcast.
Later in the episode, Jacqueline Soller and J. McVay discuss the new movie, ‘Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn,’ directed by Cathy Yan and starring Margot Robbie, Rosie Perez, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Ewan McGregor, Ella Jay Basco, and Chris Messina — out now from Warner Bros.
And we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by New York artist Pom Pom Squad, from their upcoming BTR Live Studio session.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu. Joe Virgillito is associate producer.
