In the weekly roundup episode of Blockworks’ podcast “On the Margin,” Michael Ippolito, co-founder, sits down with Senior Editor Tyler Neville to talk about the news in macro, including the $453 billion that has flown into the Federal Reserve’s reverse repo facility; inflation and why there is too much liquidity in the system, and what that means for bonds and quantitative easing.

They also cover China’s crackdown on bitcoin, and how the real problem might be rising commodity prices and inflation. While core PCE rose higher than expected, Tyler and Mike disagree on whether or not inflation is transitory. Finally, they also talk about financial nihilism with the rise of meme stocks like AMC and GameStop.

“On the Margin” is a two-part show. Once a week, Mike interviews industry experts, and then at the end of the week he is joined by co-host Tyler Neville where they break down the top crypto and macro stories. Episodes go live every Wednesday and Saturday morning.
