Shock, horror there was no big bank disaster over the weekend. Maybe they're stabilising, for now they look ok and SVB has found a buyer in First Citizens Bank. However, a sector of banks does look particularly exposed to US Commercial Real Estate.

Social Media has been in the news this week: the value of Twitter has halved, TikTok updated congress and a study shows that social media contributes to depression and thoughts of suicide amongst teenagers. And in Europe they can't make ammunition because all the power is being used up by a TikTok server farm. Speaking of Europe we also cover Opium Cafes and the hybrid working losses of unpurchased sandwiches.

So kick back for 20 minutes, level up your financial knowledge and let yourself be entertained. Plus keep those questions coming in.
