"This week marks the anniversary of Aerosmith appearing on The Simpsons. While they weren't the first band to guest on the Simpsons, they were the first that people can name. So for fun we will play some musician appearances and the clips to go with it."
This week, Nate visits Graceland, Aaron's car breaks down in an inconvenient location, and the guys debate how winning the Powerball would change them, Then they get down to business to discuss how to hide a racing bib on a subway, the helium problem in America, and what animal would be most terrifying if it could speak.

Cydney Stables is a 2022 National Proficiency Finalist in the category of Agricultural Sales Entrepreneurship. She achieved this by starting a floral business her junior year of high school that she calls "Flowers By Cydney". Cydney states that this was during the Covid Pandemic, and 80% of the reason she started this business was that she wanted to make people feel a bit better during very tough times. Cydney is currently a sophomore at Graceland University in Lamoni, Iowa where she plays guard on the basketball team and is also a scholarship athlete on the golf team. Cydney played basketball all through high school, which led to her being recruited by Graceland Univeristy, but she did not start golfing until her senior year of high school. However, she picked up the sport so fast that she made it to state that year and Graceland also asked her to play golf for them.
After the last stop in Little Rock, we realized we were a quick trip away from seeing the shining star of American exceptionalism... Graceland! Elvis' story and home were as amazing as we expected, but the rise in crime around Memphis over the past several years left us saying, "Roll, Tide, Roll!" and before we knew it, we were waking up in Tuscaloosa.

Did you know that 45 years after his death, the King of Rock N' Roll is still an economic powerhouse? Elvis' estate generated $110 million in income as of 2022. The lion's share was made from box office and merchandise sales at Graceland, Presley's Memphis home, while a paltry $5 million of that came from rights for 'Elvis,' the Baz Luhrmann-directed biopic. In today's episode of The Higher Standard, Chris and Saied discuss a Forbes article on the the highest-paid (dead) celebrities of 2022. They also look at crashing house prices, inflation and other economic matters - things that affect those of us still among the living. They discuss a recent report from the National Association of Realtors indicating that pending home sales suffered a worse decline than expected from August to September, as mortgage rates surged. Economists had predicted a 4% drop, however sales were down 31% year over year. Chris and Saied look at recent comments from Janet Yellen, 15th chair for the Federal Reserve from 2014 to 2018, who admitted she had been wrong about the path inflation would take. Her comments are particularly surprising considering how rare it is for someone from Washington to admit they were wrong in such an honest, public way. They also discuss a report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis stating that the core personal consumption expenditures price index - an economic gauge that the Federal Reserve follows closely - increased 0.5% in September from the previous month and 5.1% from a year ago. Join Chris and Saied for this fascinating conversation. Enjoy! What You'll Learn in this Show: The reasons why pending home sales fell 10% in September, and why the drop is much worse than expected. Credit Suisse's bold new restructuring plan designed to begin repairing their reputation. Why the Federal Reserve really doesn't care about the economy. Elon Musk's plans to make Twitter's 'blue checkmark' more accessible to everyone. And so much more...

"It seems to be a badge of honor especially in the rock and blues and country genres to proclaim your are self taught in music. It suggests you are a better musician than a formally taught player. Are you? This is well debated online and we will give you the facts."
