Play • 32 min

The Robin Hood connection. In this episode, Vlad chats with Dr. Robert Pogue Harrison, Stanford professor of French & Italian, published author, and host of the podcast “Entitled Opinions,” in an effort to investigate the deeper roots of our name. Dr. Harrison’s second book, Forests: The Shadow of Civilization, touches on the history of Robin Hood—the infamous rogue and equalizer—and the factors that led to the character’s creation. In this episode, they discuss the concept of outlaws, who the man in tights actually represents, and how a new understanding of Robin Hood might change the way we think about our mission to democratize the financial markets.
