Finance Fridays with Mary Childs is back with a new episode. We've got three snack-sized listener questions, two very hungry hosts, and only one York Peppermint Patty.

Mary and Cardiff break down "shares" and "buybacks" and whether finance people underplay the role of luck in their stock market success. Today on the show, we digest a little bit of the wonky world of finance.

Music by Drop Electric and "Get Up Now." Find us: Twitter / Facebook / Newsletter.
