It's been said by many that children are the future. Team Indicator couldn't agree more.

This is why today, Stacey and Cardiff do a Q&A composed entirely of kids' questions. They bring in a Wall Street executive, a financial advisor, authors, and a microbiologist.

They answer why there's a difference between the stock market and the economy, how much money to spend on college, and why we don't give people unlimited money.

NOTE: This episode may also contain a few animal facts.
