Everything you know about Black Friday is wrong (except the mob-driven violence and greed. You’re definitely right about that). It has nothing to do with slave markets or retailers’ profits moving into the black. It’s not the biggest shopping day of the year, and it definitely doesn’t have the best prices of the year, either. Frank, Meredith, and Emily separate fact from fiction while exploring the cultural and business evolution of Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and holiday shopping. Don’t miss the outtakes at the end of the episode!
(Show notes are coming, y’all. Promise. It’s just been one of those weeks).
