Robinhood stops the games

Hello and welcome back to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture-capital-focused podcast, where we unpack the numbers behind the headlines.

This week the team — Natasha and Danny and Alex and Grace — recorded a bonus Equity Shot to help our listeners make sense out of the GameStop trading bonanza happening all over the internet. The story is fast-moving and news continues to break (twice during our recording, in fact) about how trading apps such as Robinhood are responding to the tear. Still, this type of story is worth a temperature check and timestamp because it feels like it's a pivotal moment in many ways.

Here's our coverage on the site so far for people playing catch up:

Back later in the day with our usual weekly episode, which will not include any of the following phrases: stonks, retail traders, Robinhood or and r/Wallstreetbets. We promise. Talk soon!

Equity drops every Monday at 7:00 a.m. PST and Thursday afternoon as fast as we can get it out, so subscribe to us on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify and all the casts.
