The 12 Days of The Derivative

🎶 Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down The Derivative Lane. Jeff Malec is delivering in-depth chats for those streaming all the plays. The education we’re bringing, investors are singing, all is merry and bright 🎶

Okay, so we may have changed the lyrics slightly, but nothing puts you in the Christmas spirit quite like a good jingle — right?!

As the podcast is taking a break during the holiday season to refresh, regroup and record for our next season starting on January 6 — we wanted to re-release some of our favorite episodes from this past year.
