Over the Pond

I was surprised to find out this podcast originated in GB, since they were so very familiar with US economic and market forces. I like the Brit accent, and it was understandable. Thanks for speaking clearly and using clearly understandable terms! Wish it was on more often. Weekly is not often enough !! Liked their chummy comments, too. I used to work on a bond trading floor, so that helps me relate. Interesting that US corporate personalities (like Bezos) are so well known abroad. Would like to know more about their investment activities in the US vs GB.
