A very good podcast
Short interviews with an interesting range of people from both sides of the investing fence...both investors and management. Maybe in the future we could hear from a few people who admit to mistakes and tell us what they have learnt. PE is a portfolio business and all deals contribute to the success of the portfolio.
These interviews are fantastic: very informative & diverse (each one tells you something different). Sound quality is good and the length is just right. Well done Sam & team!
