Always helpful at explaining different angles of sectors I know (and don’t know) well. Great stuff!
I am so tired of “biography” podcasts. Yes.. we’re all fascinated by your success and your career advice for the rest of us, blah blah blah... is it too much to ask for more insights and less talking about yourself? Podcasts in the real estate sector have fallen prey to this same disease.
Finally, a real estate podcast that skips past the biography, and directly into INSIGHTS. Thank you Spencer Levy and God bless.
Real time economic history
A weird document of our time, it has been interesting to hear real estate people attempt to understand the role of the office building in a world that obviously has way too many of them. Lately it has started to wear something that looks more like desperation and shifted to cheerleading for companies to force their workers to return to commuting to an office, with unsubstantiated claims like "the good employees have already returned to the office!", a schtick that is really wearing thin. The most bizarre masks-off moment was the woman who said that forcing workers to commute to an office was a "social responsibility" issue because the stores next to the office building need the workers to spend money there.
