As host of the series I enjoyed the rare privilege of asking questions of the brightest minds in markets. It was amazing, occasionally appalling, and entertaining. Each and every guest raised something new and vital about trading and markets. If you're a trader, or just interested in the world of trading, this podcast series provides laughs and insights.
