Very Good but Could be Great

Overall quite a good podcast with excellent topics and guests for those interested in the business world. Also, Barry seems to stay politically neutral and not hammer the typical Bloomberg left of center agenda, which is a good thing. What could elevate this to true excellence is if Barry wasn’t clearly just reading a series of prepared questions during his interviews and would instead engage in an actual conversation with his guests. “Interesting“ and “fascinating“ only go so far...

Will Danoff

I so looked forward to an interview with Will. I have been with his fund for 30 years and Will does very few interviews. Imagine my disappointment when I heard that Barry Ritholz was doing the interview. So I lowered my expectations and forced myself to listen to the entire podcast. Well, the interview fell short of even my lowest expectations. Not one good question. I had so many questions I could have asked. This was just awful.

Major improvement!

Great interview with Contra fund terrific
Allowed guest to complete thoughts in a unhurried and nuanced way

Barry spoke <10% !
?next step <5%?

Housel, Siegel and Miller interviews were deep!
Guest were allowed to finish thoughts and go off scripted questions

Sound engineers - turn down Barry volume a little more

Nice reduction in political bias - no one cares about your pol opinion or commentaries
