Including history, philosophy, art, science, linguistics, and quantitative analysis. And help you become a better investor and also a more nuanced thinker.

A Wide Breadth of Experiences

Jim does a great job incorporating his 30+ years of investing experience with his guest’s insights. Fascinating explanation of the “latticework” of investing, which incorporates philosophy, history, biology, and psychology among other subjects.

Brilliant

Couldn’t recommend this podcast enough. Not only a great follow on Twitter, but a truly informative podcast host as well. The insights generated apply not just to investing, but to many other areas of life as well. If you’re looking to start with a single episode, the conversation with Rory Sutherland is magic.
