So glad to see this podcast!

I missed the launch of this and luckily found this after only 4 episodes went live. As an quant investor and a fellow Minnesotan I’m ecstatic. After 4 editions of “What Works on Wall Street” I was thinking that the Bible of quantitative investing would no longer be updated. It’s a great feeling to push human emotions aside (as much as possible) and have full confidence that a strategy will outperform in the long run. I stumbled across the first edition 2 years ago and haven’t looked back since. Finally a constructed way to invest that fits my style!
