Podcast Of The Week: Tales From The Crypto [FTX Podcast Collection]

Somebody else made a “Tales from the Crypto” joke already I’m sure, but I thought of it now and I’m running with it damnit.  With the FTX bankruptcy and crypto ponzi blowups making headlines all around us, I’ve been fascinated by just what happened, who got sucked in (and how), and how the world is … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Tales From The Crypto [FTX Podcast Collection]

Podcast Of The Week: Paul Graham’s Essays Via Founders Podcast

Paul Graham’s essays have had an influence on a lot of people. Me included. I’ve written about “The Lesson To Unlearn” here, but when I search my notes I not only see a ton of references to his essays that I’ve made, but also how many times other authors/podcasts/etc. have quoted him (and I’ve made … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Paul Graham’s Essays Via Founders Podcast

Podcast Of The Week: Ben Hunt on Panic With Friends

Ben Hunt returned to Howard Lindzon’s Panic With Friends podcast a few weeks ago - and if you missed it, it’s worth the revisit. Hunt is one of my favorite thinkers on how to think about people’s behavior in the context of markets.  If you’re not a finance person, think about it as how marketing … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Ben Hunt on Panic With Friends

Podcast Of The Week: Patton Oswalt’s Craziest Day Of His Career

We’ve all had crazy days.  That day probably didn’t start with declining a ride to a gig in the Planter’s Peanut Mobile, witnessing terrifying road rage, and attempting to meditate to the sound of Tingsha bells before your next gig.  This won’t add to your life or professional mojo, but it will remind you truth … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Patton Oswalt’s Craziest Day Of His Career

Podcast Of The Week: World Corrupt’s World Cup Preview

I love the World Cup. Ever since the 1994 US-hosting experience, I’ve been not only a cemented fan of the sport, but curious about it on the global level. The World Cup is the Christmas that comes every four years (or pick your holiday of choice), and it oozes drama. As I’ve attempted to tell … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: World Corrupt’s World Cup Preview

Podcast Of The Week: It’s All About Bottlenecks

In finance, “macro” people are the ones who operate at the big-picture level. It’s not just stocks and bonds, but they (typically) factor commodities, exchange rates, politics, and all sorts of other things into their analysis. Sometimes they sound really smart, but aren’t.  Sometimes they sound really tin-foil hat, and they are.  And sometimes, if … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: It’s All About Bottlenecks

Podcast Of The Week: Kevin Smith on Clerks (And Star Wars Jokes)

Good Ones strikes again - this time with Kevin Smith walking us through his life and career across all 3 Clerks movies, focusing on the Star Wars jokes in each. Considering I’ve referenced the joke from the first Clerks multiple times (most recently here), let’s just say this hits close to my heart. If you’re … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Kevin Smith on Clerks (And Star Wars Jokes)

Podcast Of The Week: The Hero’s Journeys In Our Lives

Tom Morgan has quickly become one of my favorite finance-adjacent thinkers. He’s got an interview with Dr. Daniel Cosby on the Standard Deviations podcast discussing his way of finding Campbell’s famous “Hero’s Journey” story structure in our personal lives.  I’ve thought of this concept when working with others to overcome some obstacle, but hearing him … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: The Hero’s Journeys In Our Lives

Podcast Of The Week: Alex Morgan – Still Winning

If you haven’t been following the Men in Blazers spinoff, “The Women’s Game,” it’s an excellent podcast about… the women’s game (aka, women’s soccer).  American god Alex Morgan gives one of the best interviews yet. If you don’t follow the sport, she’s been at the top since 2011, and continues to be - at the … Continue reading Podcast Of The Week: Alex Morgan – Still Winning
