    MMH - Equities vs. Inflation (plus: GrubHub’s flub, a vision for digital health) - with Boaz Salik, Deeba Goyal

    In this episode of the *Midweek Mess Haul, Nathan, Deeba, and Boaz unpack what went wrong with GrubHub's "free lunch" fiasco back in May, take an analytical look at Berkshire-Hathaway's asset-buying activities as a hedge against inflation, and discuss a vision for a well-rounded digital health future. 

    The Mess Haul features a more free-form conversational approach with multiple participants than our more interview-focused style. This format is designed to generate quick takes on a handful of recent topics, facilitating shorter, more opinionated discussion with a number of different perspectives. Each episode of The Mess Haul is (usually) recorded, edited, and released in the same day.

    The Big Dig: is the end-state of the current "Wild West" of crypto something where only the strongest survived?

    MMH - Elon Musk vs. The World, + Public Transit Hesitancy, AI Disease Prediction - with Jivraj Karwa, Boaz Salik

    In this episode of the *Midweek Mess Haul, Nathan, Jivraj, and Boaz get into hostile takeovers, public transit crime rates, and AI disease prediction.

    The Big Dig: why is there so much resistance to Elon Musk's bid to buy Twitter, and why would Musk buy an existing asset if he could theoretically make his own for the same price?
    The Final Cut: what are some additional use cases for AI-enhanced analytics in healthcare diagnostics?
