Local entrepreneur Anna Vos is one of only a handful of small business owners featured on Walmart’s website. Her business, Anna Parade, was selected for the second consecutive year as part of Walmart’s “Pride Always” campaign. Vos is known for her pink hair, her sparkly glasses, and her merchandise that celebrates joy, self-love, and LGBTQIA+ pride. We talk with her about her story, her work, and about choosing to do business with a big corporation to create positive change. Our guest:

  • Anna Vos, entrepreneur, artist, and owner of Anna Parade

Then in our second hour, do presidents move financial markets? Local economist Eric Morris wanted to know if all the hype over markets rising and falling based on who is president is justified. He researched the historical impact of American elections, the impact of the party in power, and even the way presidential campaigns do or do not move markets. He joins us to explain. Our guest:

  • Eric Morris, Ph.D., staff economist for Alesco Advisors
