This week, Ashley and Mike revel in the latest misfortune of the .1-percenters: specifically, those who dropped more than $50 million on the supercool new generation of Gulfstream private jets, which, it seems, are unable to land safely. Oops! Writer Tarpley Hitt joins the program to reveal why the shiny new toys of moviemaker Michael Bay, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, and many other hyper-wealthy types have been grounded this summer—and why they are mightily pissed off. In addition, Jay Cheshes stops by to reveal why a former co-owner of Eleven Madison Park has become persona non grata in a tony Hudson Valley town. All this and more make this week’s episode one you won’t want to miss.
