Art Bell Vault: Economic Upheaval

article's image

Our newest feature for Coast Insiders, The Art Bell Vault, offers an expanding curated collection with two vintage shows added to the mix each Wednesday. This week's offerings explore economic uncertainty and the potential for a proverbial financial Armageddon. We begin with a fascinating edition of the program from 5/1/2004 wherein Art spoke to New York Stock Exchange mediator Joe Meyer, who warned that massive debt being accumulated by both consumers and the country itself as well as a scarcity of jobs in America could send us hurtling towards an economic disaster.

Next, we journey back to February 20th, 2009, for an episode in which Art was joined by Wall St. insider Michael J. Panzner, who discussed the then-ongoing recession which had upended the country. He detailed how this turn of events came about, indicating that a primary reason was the insolvency of our banking institutions, and forecast how he saw the financial crisis coming to an end as well as what changes might occur as a result of the recession.

These vintage programs have commercials and breaks removed and are presented in multiple-platforms-- available on-demand for Mac, Windows, IOS, Android, and the Coast app. Many of them feature rare "5th" hours of content from back in the 90s when the show had a longer running time. We do include Art's beloved bumper music, which became such an indelible part of his program.

And for the true Art Bell fan, we offer different listening options to fine-tune your experience, such as guest only, and full show streams. Coast Insiders, we're very happy to bring this new offering to you at no additional charge to your subscription! We welcome your feedback.
