GameStop has long been the center of financial rumors and speculation...but not like this.

Join us as we dive into the wild world of speculative securities trading, from short sales to short squeezes, to talk about what is happening today, whether the law is equipped to handle it, and just what it might mean for the future.

Don't hate the Players, but consider changing the game...in Virtual Legality.
