Cash is king ... and queen.

Cash is king ... and queen.

Much as Rick Pecoraro Talks to Himself is a sweet duet between Rick (who talks to himself) and me (who provides each show’s playlist), this week’s episode is literally all duets, in honor of the theme: the sharing economy. I don’t have much to say on that particular topic, so for that you should listen to the show itself, conveniently embedded below. After that, the playlist, and my thoughts on same, express in the form of simple addition.
