Episode #52 – Tax Stuff & Crickets

Episode52 Artwork_edited-2

Inspired by and based on an episode of The Motley Fool’s podcast series Motley Fool Answers, ASP Stuff Radio dedicates the majority of episode 52 discussing and evaluating several important aspects of Congress’ Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that president Trump signed into law on December 22nd, 2017.  Listen to find out how this trillion dollar tax bill may financially impact you this 2018 tax season.  And if you’re not receiving an ample tax cut this year, then you might want to consider collecting crickets since they are, according to the fictional character, Melchizedek (the self-proclaimed King of Salem), of Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist, a symbol of wealth and fortune. Learn more on our show about the symbolism and meaning of these happiness-inducing insects.

Alberotle and Steveocrates conclude the overly taxing show with a couple of lighthearted, non-bookish games: (1) If you could “un-tax” anything that is currently taxed, what would you pick? and (2) What can fit in x, and starts with y?

Enjoy ASP Stuff Radio’s first show of the new year!
