    Caleb Silver: College memories, finding love in South America and defining the financial universe as the Editor in Chief of Investopedia

    Caleb Silver: College memories, finding love in South America and defining the financial universe as the Editor in Chief of Investopedia

    Caleb Silver began his journalism career hunting down stories in his home state of New Mexico with a Beta-cam and a lot of hustle. His determination to cover stories and see the world eventually took him to South America (where he would not only find work, but his future wife too), Bloomberg, CNN (where he helped create “The Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer) and now Investopedia, where he oversees content at the unofficial encyclopedia of finance. Russell and Caleb talk about the vast reach of Investopedia, how the platform has evolved, the secret to making great guacamole, and longboarding in Manhattan. They also reminisce about life in college where they first met a few short years ago. All that, and a whole lot more, on this edition of Press Profiles.
