Mentioned in the Episode and Other Links of Interest:
- Bob’s archives at Strike the Root, which contain the serialized version of Bob’s novel, Minerva. (Note that the HTML formatting is incorrect for some characters, such as the em-dash turning up as an apostrophe.) A listener compiled a PDF version of Minerva here
- Bob’s articles on the social function of stock speculators, futures markets, and call and put options
