It's a huge weekend for gamblers. People bet on everything in "the big game" from the final score to the commercials. But there can be a dark side, and Joe Gagliano, author of No Grey Areas, is here to share a few tales from his tell-all book. While many people have bet a few times, Joe engineered the biggest gambling scandal in NCAA history, the Arizona State point shaving. How did Joe start down the slippery slope to big-time sports fixing? What's going on with games like Draft Kings? We'll talk about the dirty underbelly of gambling on today's podcast!

Plus, in our headlines segment we'll not only teach you a REALLY important French phrase, but we'll also save some time to talk about something a little less controversial going on in the US government...retirement plan reform. We throw out the Haven Life line to Ryan, who wants to know about how many stocks and bonds he should have in his portfolio, and we answer a letter from Joey, who we're fairly certain is trying to invite us to his wedding...but disguises it has a question about transferring property. Throw in Doug's trivia and some other surprises, and you've got a great "big game" episode.
