DYING 😂 re: Crowdstrike hype

I love Josh but love him more when he is wrong (cuz hes so arrogant). He has been hyping Crowdstrike for months and the fact this "security" company just destroyed their reputation in the stupidest way ever is gold. They will be sued into bankruptcy

Fantastic!

Great chemistry between hosts, always interesting material. A must listen for anyone that works in financial services.

Best Financial Content in Podcastland

TCAF, WAYT, and Animal Spirits are the trifecta of shows that has the perfect blend of education and entertainment. Lectures tend to be boring regardless of how much you like the topic. Entertainment usually won’t teach you a whole lot. That’s exactly what these shows offer. Josh Brown, Michael Batnick, and Ben Carlson have amazing chemistry and knowledge. I genuinely feel like I’m listening to friends chit chat. They don’t always agree and everything, which is refreshing.
