Happy Friday from the Trader’s Desk. Once you add Wendy (who I think will be majorly pissed at Axe for his role in Tanner flying the coop) Chuck, Prince, and Taylor they will officially become the Four Horsemen who will be riding to finally bring Axe to his demise. I’ll get into why I believe that the bullseye on Axe’s forehead is rightfully earned, but first the tranya!

Roger Bennett Talks His New Podcast Band Of Brothers on HBO Max
by Rashad Grove | Forbes | September 16, 2021
20 years ago, HBO debuted Band of Brothers which would become one of the most acclaimed miniseries in television history. Created by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, the Emmy and Golden Globe winning series “honors an America which saved the world with selflessness, courage and everyday heroism” during World War II.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series, HBO Max premiered a 12-part podcast hosted by noted journalist Roger Bennett which explores themes of the series with highly-researched interviews with cast members who give insight about the series that have never been heard before.
I caught up with Roger and we spoke about the cultural impact of the show, why chronicling the stories of World War II veterans is an important task, and connecting with members of the cast.

Punch, Punch, Punch, and a Knock Out
by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | September 12, 2021
This fast-paced and very clever Billions episode gives us an extremely fun and most Billions-y hour this season. All the characters have to read their opponent and make decisions very fast. It is like watching a wild boxing match – punch, punch, punch, and a big knock out. That said I am sure there will be a thrilling rematch!
It has been 24 hours since they acquired a bank. However, it seems Axe is focusing on everything but the bank!
We know that, after Bruno retired and moved to Florida, Axe has adopted a new pizza place, Una Pizza Napoletana, and we saw him in Season 5 Episode 6 The Nordic Model making a business offer to Chef Anthony Mangieri and his TV cousin Domenick who has a degree from NYU Stern.
