Genuine, deeply curious, objective

Excellent opportunity to join Jonathan as he explores the structure and innovations in the ETF space. It’s valuable to get to know the managers and thought leaders behind a wide range of ETF strategies. He’s at his best when he makes points and ask question that test the integrity, logic, and soundness of his guest’s strategies.

Host doesn’t check political bias of guests

Listening to Frank Holmes speak about Covid 19 is like listening to a QAnon nut. Really turned me off to the show, especially because the host ingratiated himself to Frank.
