John Phillips, CEO of Aristotle, the engine behind PredictIt, joins TPT to talk about the convergence of politics and prediction markets, and developing an atomic bomb in college.

To best understand PredictIt is to know its history. This bonus episode pulls back the curtain—trader demographics, new markets, and a new partnership. John also shares his perspectives as a 30-year politico on two of the most active markets: EU Next Leader to Leave Office and the Democratic VP Nominee.
