King Cast

Welcome to King Cast, our King School podcast produced by our US Economics Division (ED). The primary purpose of King Cast is to showcase to the whole King community the degree of engagement in the real world of political economy, financial markets, economic analysis, and of course with King sports, events, activities, and community service on the part of ED students. The programming is a 30 minute (+/-) podcast and it is meant to be quick, fast talk, with the curtain down, verbal mistakes allowed, laughter, with excitement about King Econ and King Community. Enjoy!
