This might be my favorite interview I’ve ever done…
A week ago I sat down with my friend Morgan Housel of The Motley Fool to talk about my new book, Clash of the Financial Pundits.
Morgan’s part of the new financial blogging movement I call the Bullshit Police, along with Ben Carlson, Tren Griffin, Carl Richards, Michael Batnick and others – guys who’ve dedicated themselves to tearing down market superstition and spuriousness with their writing, rather than adding to the already heaping pile of it out there. His columns for the Fool are consistently the best content the site puts out each week – and that’s saying something, considering the sheer volume we’re talking about.
Below, Morgan and I talk about investors, their lack of preparedness, why books are better than news and what my financial media consumption secret is. I really enjoyed this doing this interview and I hope you like watching it.
There are a lot of smart investors. There are a lot of entertaining people. There are few of both. Josh Brown, The Reformed Broker blogger is one of them. He is as insightful as he is hilarious, which, after bursting onto the scenes a few years ago, made him almost overnight one of the biggest names in the financial media.
Josh’s new book, Clash of the Financial Pundits, co-written with Jeff Macke, digs deep into the financial punditry business to show why pundits talk and investors listen. It’s a incredibly good read.
Josh and I sat down earlier this week. Have a look:
