The Grant Williams PodCAST

In 2020, I stoked the fire of my passion for interviewing brilliant people by launching The Grant Williams Podcast. Alongside my own interviews, I added three additional streams, each with a fantastic co-host: The End Game (with Bill Fleckenstein), The Super Terrific Happy Hour (with Stephanie Pomboy), and The Narrative Game (with Dr. Ben Hunt).

The response has been overwhelming. In only 5 months, these interviews have been downloaded over 1 million times, placing this content squarely in the top 0.1% of podcasts offered in the vast marketplace.

The Grant Williams Podcast: Danielle DiMartino Booth

My very special guest for this episode of The Grant Williams Podcast is my friend, Danielle DiMartino Booth, the CEO and Chief Strategist of Quill Intelligence LLC. and the author of the bestselling book Fed Up.

With Fed Chair Jay Powell’s renomination the source of enormous speculation amidst a concerted push by Beltway powerbrokers to get Lael Brainard the corner office at the Marriner S. Eccles Building and a series of highly distasteful revelations about the private trading activity of several Fed governors (including Powell himself), Danielle offers the benefit of her intimate understanding of the institution, the politics surrounding it and the individuals involved in the ongoing drama to help us understand the potential outcome and what it might mean for markets.

This is a thoroughly entertaining and hugely informative hour that I know you’ll enjoy immensely.

The Grant Williams Podcast: Julian Brigden

My guest on the latest episode of The Grant Williams Podcast is my friend, Julian Brigden of MI2 partners -, one of the finest macro analysts plying his trade anywhere in the world today.

In what turned out to be a wide-ranging and enormously thought-provoking conversation, Julian outlined just how problematic the range of options facing the world’s central banks has become as inflation tightens its grip on the world economy, forcing certain central banks to take policy decisions which run counter to the interests of others for the first time in more than a decade.

The knock-on effects for currencies of decisions made around interest rates and any possible steps designed to control yield curves are examined in the wake of the RBA abandonment of its YCC policy in recent weeks and Julian demonstrates just how high the stakes are and just how calamitous any policy mistakes will be at this juncture.

This is sobering stuff. Please make sure you’re sitting down while listening!

The Grant Williams Podcast: Dave Dredge

My guest in this episode of The Grant Williams Podcast is Dave Dredge of Convex Strategies in Singapore – a man with whom I had several epic conversations during my time at Real Vision.

This time, our discussion was sparked by a recent monthly letter Dave published which examined the recent US withdrawal from Afghanistan and used it to look at financial markets through the prism of ‘self-organized criticality.’

Dave’s ability to communicate complex ideas with brilliantly-chosen metaphors is to the fore in what was a hugely engaging conversation that will leave you with much to ponder.

Be sure to download the letter which sparked this conversation at the link provided below – it will provide invaluable background to yet another fantastic hour of rich discourse.

The Grant Williams Podcast: Louis Gave

My guest in this episode of The Grant Williams Podcast is my friend, Louis Gave, of GaveKal research.

After I published my recent edition of Things That Make You Go Hmmm… entitled ‘Xi Moves In Mysterious Ways’, Louis sent me an email explaining why I was wrong about much of what I wrote. Given his proximity to China and the level of his experience, I asked Louis if he’d be willing to join me on the podcast so he could haul me over he coals in public, allowing you to hear me called out and giving you the opportunity to hear the other side of the argument from someone with impeccable credentials so you can make up your own mind.

What followed was a fascinating conversation that raises much about which to ponder…
