    The End Game Ep. 36 - Ed Chancellor PREVIEW

    The End Game Ep. 36 - Ed Chancellor PREVIEW

    In the latest episode of The End Game, Bill and Grant welcome author and financial historian non-pareil, Edward Chancellor back to talk about his new book The Price Of Time.

    During his first appearance on The End Game, Ed teased us with a book he was in the process of wrapping up which would chronicle the history of interest rates and tell the story of the cost of money over the course of history.

    Now, with the book appearing on multiple bestseller lists, Ed joins us to discuss what he learned as he trawled through the history books in search of a story that really is as old as time itself. From biblical times to the modern day malaise engulfing the world’s central banks as they battle the unintended consequences of a decade of artificial interest rates, Ed spins a story that has to be heard and needs to be understood.

    This Week In Doom Ep. 9 - What’s Next For Europe? (Panel) (FULL EPISODE)

    This Week In Doom Ep. 9 - What’s Next For Europe? (Panel) (FULL EPISODE)

    In this special edition of This Week In Doom, Grant and The Green Chicken are joined by Luke Gromen of Forest For The Trees LLC, Marko Papic of Clocktower Group and special guest Sir Steven Wilkinson, author of The Pitchfork Papers, for a discussion on the EU’s creaking energy policy, the effects of sanctions against Russia in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine and what it all means for the future of Europe.

    In a two-hour debate filled with insightful analysis, respectful disagreement and thoughtful perspective, we explored multiple facets of the current situation, picked apart the potential outcomes and tried to handicap the likely paths that may be taken from here.

    Finally, as the discussion turned to Germany’s role in how this all plays out, we welcomed Sir Steven who gave us the benefit of his near-30 years experience building and operating businesses in Germany.

    The Grant Williams Podcast Ep. 38 - Sir Steven Wilkinson PREVIEW

    The Grant Williams Podcast Ep. 38 - Sir Steven Wilkinson PREVIEW

    The latest episode of The Grant Williams Podcast features the wonderful personality and profound intellect of Sir Steven Wilkinson - a man I’ve admired for a long time and who, earlier this year, I had the great pleasure of spending a day with as part of the Gold Tier About Time series.

    The genesis of this particular conversation was, as you’ll hear, Steven graciously pointing out to me where I was completely wrong in my thinking about the EU and, in particular, Germany. Having read my last Things That Make You Go Hmmm... and listened to my recent appearance on the excellent Wall Street Silver/Doomberg Spaces to discuss my thoughts on Europe, Steven contacted me to explain where I was off-beam.

    Needless to say, I thought my dressing down should be a) public and b) form the basis for a conversation that would make sure everybody ended up better-informed (with the possible exception of Steven!)...

    The Narrative Game Ep. 8: N.E.W.S.

    The Narrative Game Ep. 8: N.E.W.S.

    In the latest episode of The Narrative Game, Ben and Grant discuss the Narrative Early Warning System (N.E.W.S.) developed by Ben and Rusty Guinn to help not just investors, but everybody understand and sidestep the increasing amount of ‘controlled’ news funneled into our social media feeds, news sources and conversations with friends.

    NEWS is the culmination of a 30 year-long project which Ben has been developing since his earliest academic research and is designed to alert people to the signals and clues that what you may be reading has been delivered to you at a very specific time in a very specific way and through a very specific medium in order to generate a very specific reaction.

    Arming yourself with the defensive weaponry required to sidestep the ‘nudging state’ has never been more important so start fighting back today by listening to Ben.

    The Grant Williams Podcast Ep. 37 - Peter Zeihan PREVIEW

    The Grant Williams Podcast Ep. 37 - Peter Zeihan PREVIEW

    The latest episode of The Grant Williams Podcast sees the welcome return of geopolitical strategist and author, Peter Zeihan - a man who has, in his previous two appearances, shaken many long-held assumptions about the balance of geopolitical power.

    This time Peter trains his gaze on Europe, picking apart the strengths and weaknesses of the EU as it tries to navigate its way through the most serious energy crisis in living memory as well as inflation that is headed for double digits.

    Peter’s conclusions will likely surprise many as he singles out one particular country where the problems its facing may lead to a catastrophic outcome for both the country in question and the wider European Union.

    Oh, of course, there’s still time to talk about China, the US and a post-Brexit Britain which is in the middle of a political crisis all of its own.

    The Grant Williams Podcast Ep. 36 - Dan Oliver PREVIEW

    The Grant Williams Podcast Ep. 36 - Dan Oliver PREVIEW

    After his appearance on The End Game last year, I’ve had countless requests to bring back my latest guest for another conversation to discuss the state of the monetary world with a special focus on precious metals and though his encyclopedic historical lens.

    Dan Oliver is a great friend and has the kind of brain I never tire of picking so I’m delighted he’s been able to find some time to grace the podcast once again.

    In another wonderful conversation, Dan once again dusts off the history books to provide colour and context around the present day predicament faced by central banks and to explain just how crucial liquidity is to properly functioning economies and societies.

    Inflations, depressions, manias and panics all come under Dan’s penetrating gaze and the result is podcast perfection.

Is Grant the best host ever????

I listen to some great Podcasts and there are lots of great people to listen to but Grant really is one the best. I’m not an investor, I just love financial podcasts so it’s not worth me subscribing to the extra content but before the paywall I loved every interview. This and Macrovoices are truly great shows and should be compulsory for everyone that wants to really understand the world-thanks Grant.

Masterful

Grant is such a cool customer. He's calm, measured, thoughtful and interesting. He gets great guests probably because he's so well respected and without doubt has one of the best finance podcasts out there. Him and Macrovoices are the best.
