What do you read/listen to everyday?

Familiar with WSJ, Bloomberg, Financial Times Podcast, etc. For fellow prospects and beyond, what are your favorite news apps/outlets? How about those to research recent deals?

Too much free time over quarantine.

I try watching the Joe Rogan Experience on Spotify whenever I'm driving around as opposed to music because I think the interviews are super interesting. Other than that reading a book right now called the President's Club: Inside The World's Most Exclusive Fraternity which talks about the Presidents of the United States and how they've interacted with each other.

Appreciate that. I have been trying to get into JRE - any favorite episodes/interviews you think are best to start on?

Definitely get into JRE as much as you can. I personally like watching anything and try to differentiate my listens. Right now I'm listening to Terry Virts, retired Astronaut because it just seemed like a really interesting perspective to have (highly recommend). Edward Snowden, Matthew McConaughey, Francis Ngannou (if you watch UFC you'll know), Jordan Jonas (Spent 77 days living alone in the wild to win like 1 million dollars).

Nick Yarris episode. Imo JRE's best guest and very motivating

Maybe helps that I'm driving and listening so not paying 100% attention to it... but then again his questions are more interviewer led not interviewee led if that makes sense. All good though I know it's not everyone's cup of tea! What do you listen to?

Macro Voices labels itself like if it's some sort of in-depth and advanced podcast, but most of their interviews are drudged with the most surface level shit and hearing the first 30 minutes is cancer because it's just the hosts pointing out technical levels on a variety of commodities for little reason and low context. Despite that, I do enjoy hearing Jeff Snider speak every once in a while about the Dollar and the Fed, even though nothing he's said has happened yet; his central bank views are very thorough, though.

I agree with you - I dont listen to the introduction either but I think the reason they include it is because some of their audience trades on technicals. But I think the overall show is good. Eric was one of the first people to predict that COVID would become a global pandemic in January/February when everyone else was downplaying it. I de-risked in my personal portfolio after hearing that and avoided a large part of the sell-off in March.

Not every guest is good and I dont listen to every episode but my favorites are Jeff Snider, Mike Green and Russell Napier.

Andre Agassi's. Even if you're not a tennis fan/don't know who he is, it's dope.

Why don't you stop trying to be a hardo and spend your time on things that matter during your quarantine (language learning, reading/listening to books, exercise, yoga, meditation, etc.). 

For news just the Bloomberg / Finmize newsletters as well as a couple FT / The Economist / Crunchbase or TechCrunch articles if into tech are enough

Nothing like listening to "submissive twink slave takes it from behind" at 3:37 am while working on PowerPoint and realizing that while he is being fucked for ten minutes, you are being fucked 365 days a year
