Danny moses - host
A Wall Street insider since 1991, Danny has seen his fair share of Bull and Bear Markets and has been able to observe the markets from a number of perspectives: Municipal Bond analyst, Institutional Sell-Side Broker, Trader, and Hedge Fund Manager. Danny has built a reputation of integrity, inquisitiveness and skepticism that has aided him during his career.
The book, and later the movie, "The Big Short" chronicled a few people who saw the housing bubble forming in 2004 and figured out how to successfully navigate through the volatility in the financial markets. Danny Moses was part of this small group who were forward-thinking and brave enough to have bet against the market and to have participated in one of the greatest trades in Wall Street history.
Only a few months after the Big Short “Book” was released in March 2010, the “flash crash” occurred. Having traded during the actual “Flash Crash” on May 6th, 2010, Danny felt compelled to get the story told, and introduced Michael Lewis to the lead character Brad Katsuyama and Lewis went onto write “Flash Boys” which takes a cynical view of the role of High Frequency Traders on Wall Street and chronicles some of Danny’s trading experiences as well.
These stories and many more are brought to life on BailStreet through both his eyes and those of the guests that sit down with Danny and Ira.

ira judelson - host
New York’s foremost bail bondsman with “over $30 million on the street.” Ira Judelson walks a fine line between hustler and humanitarian with clients ranging from the rich and famous to the mafia and gangs of New York. You can read more in Ira's book The Fixer and be prepared to be shocked, but also informed as Judelson reveals the unwritten laws of the courtroom and even prison—not to mention the shameless activities of his unbelievable list of clients, including former New York Giants Plaxico Burress and Lawrence Taylor; rappers Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Ja Rule, Lil’ Wayne, and DMX; comedian Katt Williams; notorious Manhattan madam Kristin Davis; and former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn. You’ll see why the New York Times describes Judelson as “an inevitable entry in the BlackBerrys of New York defense lawyers, an ATM for desperate rappers, actors, athletes, executives, and madams with pocketbooks much fatter than his."
