    Ep. 950: Will Cole Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

    For some, the idea of fasting by eating only one or two meals a day still sounds like an extreme and overly restrictive dieting tactic. But many of us already feel like victims to our daily eating schedule- three meals a day, plus snacks. Eat every few hours, we are told by the experts. This fixed eating schedule has become the norm. But the truth is this is an artificially constructed schedule that does not reflect our bodies’ natural and most optimal eating schedule. In fact, eating three meals a day causes metabolic inflexibility, which can easily lead to inflammation, weight gain, and disease. For millions of years, our bodies have actually functioned best by fasting.
    Functional medicine expert Dr. Will Cole gives us the ability to take control of our hunger and makes intermittent fasting intuitive. You’ll get in touch with your instinctive eating patterns, and become healthier and more mindful about how and when you eat. Intermittent fasting fosters metabolic flexibility-and once you’ve reached metabolic flexibility, you can trust your body to function at optimal capacity, whether you’ve eaten six minutes ago or six hours ago.
    Dr. Cole illustrates the most effective ways to fast and eat to amplify the health benefits of intermittent fasting, balancing rest and repair with clean, nutrient-dense, delicious foods. Along with sixty to seventy recipes, he also includes a maintenance plan, so you can adapt fasting and feeding windows to work with your lifestyle.
    Bio: Dr Will Cole graduated from Southern California University of Health Sciences in Los Angeles, California. He has his post doctorate education and training in Functional Medicine and Clinical Nutrition through The Institute for Functional Medicine and Functional Medicine University.

    Ep. 948: James Salzman Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

    Ep. 948: James Salzman Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

    A hidden set of rules governs who owns what–explaining everything from whether you can recline your airplane seat to why HBO lets you borrow a password illegally–and in this lively and entertaining guide, two acclaimed law professors reveal how things become “mine.”
    “Mine” is one of the first words babies learn. By the time we grow up, the idea of ownership seems natural, whether buying a cup of coffee or a house. But who controls the space behind your airplane seat: you reclining or the squished laptop user behind? Why is plagiarism wrong, but it’s okay to knock-off a recipe or a dress design? And after a snowstorm, why does a chair in the street hold your parking space in Chicago, but in New York you lose the space and the chair?
    My guest today James Salzman explains these puzzles and many more. Surprisingly, there are just six simple stories that everyone uses to claim everything. Owners choose the story that steers us to do what they want. But we can always pick a different story. This is true not just for airplane seats, but also for battles over digital privacy, climate change, and wealth inequality. As Michael Heller and James Salzman show–in the spirited style of Freakonomics, Nudge, and Predictably Irrational–ownership is always up for grabs.
    With stories that are eye-opening, mind-bending, and sometimes infuriating, James Salzman reveals the rules of ownership that secretly control our lives.
    Bio: James Salzman holds the Samuel Mordecai chair at the School of Law and the Nicholas Institute Professor chair at the School of the Environment at Duke University. He has written extensively on the topics of environmental conservation, population growth, and climate change. He lives in Durham, North Carolina.

    Ep. 946: Suneel Gupta Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

    No one makes it alone. But there’s a reason some people can get investors or bosses to believe in them while others cannot. And that reason has little to do with experience, pedigree, or a polished business plan. Backable people seem to have a hidden quality that inspires others to take action. We often chalk this up to natural talent or charisma…either you have “it” or you don’t.
    After getting rejected by every investor he pitched, Suneel Gupta had a burning question: Could “it” be learned?
    Drawing lessons from hundreds of the world’s biggest thinkers, Gupta discovered how to pitch new ideas in a way that has raised millions of dollars, influenced large-scale change inside massive corporations, and even convinced his eight-year-old daughter to clean her room. Inside Backable are long-held secrets from producers of Oscar-winning films, members of Congress, military leaders, culinary stars, venture capitalists, founders of unicorn-status startups, and executives at iconic companies like Lego, Method, and Pixar.
    Gupta reveals how the key to success is not charisma, connections, or even your résumé, but rather your ability to persuade others to take a chance on you. This original book will show you how.
    Bio: Suneel Gupta is on faculty at Harvard University where he teaches students how to be Backable. His ideas have been backed by firms like Greylock and Google Ventures, and he has invested in startups including Airbnb, Calm, and SpaceX.

Hard hitting must listen gem in the world of podcasts

Covel is the Jim Rome of finance. All would benefit greatly by listening to ‘Trend Following’ w/ Michael Covel. It’s not just about markets, trading or the trend following method of trading in markets. There are so many elements to Covel’s genius that I have leaned so much from. I am a big fan of his style of writing and speaking. This podcast, in my opinion, is on the top of the list of podcasts about markets, trading, behavioral finance, etc. Anyone who is a fan of Michael and this podcast should also read ‘The Complete Turtle Trader.’ One of the best books I’ve ever read detailing one of the very best stories the market has ever seen.
