The Subprime Mortgage Crisis was a devastating blow to both America and the world in 2007 through 2009. It wiped out citizens’ financial security and futures and nearly collapsed the world economy.

Episode 14 is a veritable Christan Bale-A-Palooza as Dirty A and I discuss the actor’s two new films: David O. Russell’s American Hustle and Scott Cooper’s Out of the Furnace.
Then we delve into the archives and discuss two of Bale’s older films: Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige and the sci-fi action film, Equilibrium.
Thanks for listening and enjoy!
