    The Grant Williams Podcast: Dave Dredge - PREVIEW

    The Grant Williams Podcast: Dave Dredge - PREVIEW

    My guest in this episode of The Grant Williams Podcast is Dave Dredge of Convex Strategies in Singapore - a man with whom I had several epic conversations during my time at Real Vision.

    This time, our discussion was sparked by a recent monthly letter Dave published which examined the recent US withdrawal from Afghanistan and used it to look at financial markets through the prism of ‘self-organized criticality.’

    Dave’s ability to communicate complex ideas with brilliantly-chosen metaphors is to the fore in what was a hugely engaging conversation that will leave you with much to ponder.

    Be sure to download the letter which sparked this conversation at the link provided below - it will provide invaluable background to yet another fantastic hour of rich discourse.

    The Grant Williams Podcast: Doomberg - PREVIEW

    My guest in the latest episode of The Grant Williams Podcast is two things - a fast-rising star in the Twitterspshere who‘s been producing some of the most readable and insightful commentary on the economy, financial markets and politics over the past several months... and a green cartoon chicken.

    In this fascinating conversation, we discuss his journey so far, the motivations behind his deciding to put claw to keyboard and several of the topics he‘s covered so brilliantly in recent weeks including the nascent energy crisis, supply chain shortages, inflation and the remarkable situation in the uranium market...

    Super Terrific Happy Hour Ep. 13 - Sam Zell

    Super Terrific Happy Hour Ep. 13 - Sam Zell

    This week, on the Super Terrific Happy Hour, Stephanie & Grant are joined by the legendary Sam Zell, a billionaire investor, entrepreneur and philanthropist whose uncanny knack of knowing not just which businesses to get into, but when to let somebody else take them off his hands (at significantly higher prices) is unmatched.
    In this wonderful conversation, Steph and Grant expose the details of Sam’s first ever business venture, the personality traits which give him an edge over his competitors and the methods by which he identifies potential opportunities amidst an onslaught of pitches from people keen to have him be a part of their latest venture.
    Frank, humble and insightful, Sam is everything you’d want him to be and so much more...

    The Grant Williams Podcast: Daniel Want, Prerequisite Capital Management - PREVIEW

    The Grant Williams Podcast: Daniel Want, Prerequisite Capital Management - PREVIEW

    My guest in the latest edition of The Grant Williams Podcast is my friend, Daniel Want, the Chief Investment Officer of Prerequisite Capital Management in Brisbane Australia.

    Daniel is truly a unique thinker - something I recognized in his written work and then had conclusively reinforced the first time we sat down to chat in person several years ago in Sydney.

    After watching a recent Investment Committee meeting Daniel very kindly shared with me, I wanted to have him join me on the podcast to allow a wider audience to understand his framework and current thinking.

    What followed was yet another eye-opening discussion which, I suspect, will have you rethinking many aspects of your own investment framework.

    The End Game Ep. 27 - Harley Bassman PREVIEW

    The End Game Ep. 27 - Harley Bassman PREVIEW

    Joining Bill and Grant this time on The End Game is Harley Bassman of Simplify Asset Management.

    In a lively discussion, Harley slaps both Bill and Grant around with alacrity as he picks apart the connection between rates and inflation, the likely level of understanding at the Federal Reserve about the problems they’re creating, the importance of convexity (and the level to which it’s misunderstood) and what investors need to do to protect themselves.

    From term surfaces to the TIPs market, Harley demonstrates time and again why he’s one of the most important voices in today’s markets and ensures that, if this is your first exposure to him, you’ll be paying careful attention to what he says going forward.

    The Grant Williams Podcast: Tim Grover, Attack Athletics - PREVIEW

    The Grant Williams Podcast: Tim Grover, Attack Athletics - PREVIEW

    This edition of The Grant Williams Podcast is a little different - delightfully so.

    My guest is Tim Grover, the CEO of Attack Athletics and the author of two phenomenal books Relentless and, most recently, W1nning.

    Tim will be familiar to any of you who were, like me, NBA geeks during the careers of both Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant thanks to the work he did with both of those great champions - helping them build and strengthen not just their bodies to withstand the physical toll of a gruelling NBA season, but also their minds - enabling these two incredible athletes to handle the extraordinary pressure that comes with being an era-defining global superstar and build a winning mentality that saw them both rise above the incredible talent all around them to become the most dominant figures in one of the most highly-competitive, athletic leagues in all of sports.

    Tim explains the secret to building a winning mentality, the sacrifices that have to be made and how to deal with both victory and defeat in a manner which allows you the freedom to put setbacks behind you and move forward with a single-minded purpose.

    The lessons Tim has both learned from and taught to the world’s greatest athletes offer so much to anyone fortunate enough to hear them and apply them to their own daily lives - whether at home, or at work.

    The parallels with the world of investing are there for all to see and the candour and clarity with which Tim shares the methods he’s developed over 30-plus years working with elite athletes is beyond refreshing.

    Tim’s book, Winning is available in all the usual places and I honestly can’t recommend it highly enough.

    As you’ll hear in our conversation, I’m hardly the target audience for Tim’s work, but I found it to be enormously compelling and incredibly thought-provoking and I know you’ll feel similarly after listening to what comes next.

Great

Great podcast. Paywall was likely a huge mistake. Don’t fault Grant for monetizing his work, but other ways would have increased reach while likely increased revenue

Can barely hear his website podcast. Wanker!

Must Listen

Grant Williams may be the best host/interviewer in the business and his own views on macro are always worth knowing. Fleck is a credible voice and contributor on his own. Great guests, always optimally facilitated, usually very entertaining. Never miss it. Actionable for me more than other podcasts. Thanks Grant & Fleck!!
