Panic With Friends — Howard Lindzon
Howard Lindzon, investor and co-founder of Stocktwits, first started making podcasts in 2019, when he launched Lindzanity. Today, the podcast has more than 130 episodes. Throughout the series, he interviews investors, traders, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists about their best ideas and worst investments. However, as the market’s 10-year bull run came to an end in March 2020, he changed the name of the podcast to Panic With Friends.
The episodes that followed featured guests including Jim O’Shaughnessy, founder and CEO at O’ Shaughnessy Asset Management, and Charlie Bilello, founder and CEO at Compound Capital Advisors, and focused on how to deal with a bear market. The discussions provided listeners with helpful tips and tricks from industry experts that had experienced market crashes before.
