Marketbeat ,

Really informative

Love the format. I have listened to loads of biz podcast like HBR ideacast and others. This one is great because Colbert not only covers mainstream business issues but carefully intertwines social, historical and political considerations seamlessly throughout his conversations. Totally rocks! Keep it coming!

marketinsight ,

Best narrator of all pods

Colbert Cannon was born to host radio (& pods). Love the “best idea” segment, and market color that isn’t just regurgitation of technicals. Can not wait for more episodes.

Colbert is a great host

The first episode was really well done. Colbert was a great interviewer and Mr. Marsal’s insights were very interesting. Hearing how he helped restructure Lehman was really amazing. Looking forward to more episodes!
