Dominic Cianciolo, cinematic director of the new hit video game Mortal Kombat X, joins us to tell the tale of his journey from CPA to video games. How does someone go from a career in finance to directing some of the world's biggest selling properties? You'll be surprised by the steps Dominic took to make his dream of directing a reality....even after he was in a career that most people would label "secure."

...but that's not all! Famous entrepreneur and podcaster James Altucher told Business Insider last week that you shouldn't invest in your 401k if you're in your 20's or 30's. What do we think about that? It's in the headlines. Got your tax refund back yet? A listener commented recently on our Facebook page about how bad it is to get a tax refund, but PK explains that it might not be as bad as you think.....

Doug also has trivia, we tackle your letters AND review the new Disney nature film Monkey Kingdom on today's podcast.

Jason O'Donnell from Bluestone Financial Institutions Fund has a cool job. He's CIO for a hedge fund, working with investors with over $2M net worths who are specifically interested in financial stocks. If anyone knows the future of banking, it's Jason.

So, we'll ask him how banks can stop being so....awful. We'll pick his brain on banking mergers, on dwindling services and on how people will interface with their banker. We'll also talk about ease of borrowing money, banks getting hacked, which size banks are going to be the big winners, and how your phone will be right in the middle of how you interact with your bank (even more than today).

But that isn't all....OG & Joe share yet another REIT horror story and talk about the quest for higher dividends....is it helping marketers create some new investments that might not be in our best interest? PK discusses taxes on Fractional Sense....Doug has trivia, and we talk about an oldie-but-goodie flick (does anyone say that anymore?): Running Brave.

It's April! You know what that means...baseball season is underway and every team feels like they've got a fighting chance to win the big prize.

Isn't it the same with money? Don't most of us start out thinking we can "win" with money but then many of us get derailed? AJ Smith from SmartAsset wrote a piece for Credit.com that compared baseball with finances...and whether you're a baseball fan or not, I think there's a ton to like in today's Short Stack!

David Kestenbaum and Robert Smith from Planet Money walked into a bar....I know it sounds like a joke, but they actually did....they walked into a comedy club and told really, really, really bad economist jokes. How did it go? What can we learn (except that economist jokes are so bad they're AWESOME)? They'll share the experience today.

In today's headlines, investors are hoping for safety and yield at the same time...cake and eat, too? We weigh in. PK is also here with a segment about online health care. It's the wave of the future....maybe....but does it work? He tried it out.

We also talk about Joe's obsession with Peaky Blinders, take your letters....and (per usual....) lots more!
