30: Deep Thoughts About Trading Places

Updated: Apr 3

April 2, 2024

Looking good, Tracie! Feeling good, Emily!

On this week’s Deep Thoughts, Emily analyzes Trading Places, the film that taught her what a short sale is, how a bookie works, and that she is most definitely a money nerd. While the film offers a pointed critique of capitalism and racism, it undercuts its own message with the truly weird train/costume party scene and the random bikini-clad women on the beach at the end. Tracie and Emily also tell the story of how Jamie Lee Curtis happened to be at Emily’s wedding (really!).
