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.

Beginning February 1, 2021, access to new episodes of The Grant Williams Podcast will now be available through our COPPER membership tier ($10/month) and is included as a component of all premium tiers.

The Grant Williams Podcast – Short Shrift

Grant invites two accomplished shortsellers, Marc Cohodes and Bill Fleckenstein to discuss the wild gyrations in equity markets in recent days as a coordinated move by retail investors to attack ‘shortsellers’ and inflict pain upon Wall Street proves to be, in some ways at least, a roaring success. There are, however, nuances to this story which are perhaps not broadly understood and are in need of a little illumination – most notably, the difference between ‘shortsellers’ and ‘highly leveraged hedge fund shorts’. Bill, Marc and Grant discuss the important differences between the two, the events that have transpired and the potential path from here as well as some thoughts on why and how the system is broken, where the anger of retail investors ought to perhaps more accurately be directed and why this growing revolution may be an important turning point…

It looks as though Q3 is setting up to be a very, very important watershed…

Both Sides Of The Coin: A Civilized Bitcoin Debate

Grant welcomes Mike Green of Logica Funds and Nic Carter of Castle Island Ventures & CoinMetrics for a civilized debate about Bitcoin (with a little Tether chat thrown in for good measure). With so much polarization around this topic, it seemed like a good opportunity to try and flesh out the case both for and against bitcoin with two men who’ve become vocal proponents for their respective causes. What followed was a wonderful exchange of ideas with both Mike and Nic demonstrating precisely why each side of the debate values their opinion so highly. Will any minds be changed by this? It’s highly unlikely… but let’s see, shall we… REMINDER: This is the penultimate free edition of The Grant Williams Podcast. After February 1, all new episodes will be behind a paywall.

The Narrative Game Ep. 4 – Events, Dear Boy, Events

With the U.S. election just hours away, Ben Hunt joins Grant to discuss the narrative heading into a seemingly climactic event upon which so much is riding. Orwell’s 1984, the words you need to recognise as both sides try to mobilise opinion and the importance of creating an ‘Other’ all come under the microscope as does, troublingly, Ben’s choice for the big theme of 2021: regime change around the world.

Reviews

“The Endgame series of podcasts may be the pinnacle of financial podcasts. Grant and Bill interview, and just let talk, serious financial minds on serious financial topics. I have been a subscriber to Grant’s newsletter for years, but this may be his best work. I can not recommend this highly enough.”
“There is no one in the world who can expand your mind through informative conversation like Grant. He is one of a kind. What a blessing are these conversations he shares with us.”
“A great mix of conversations and themes, masterfully held together by Grant Williams. Always look forward to the next one.”
I can’t say enough. I’m just blown away by the quality and level of intelligence on this show. The End Game series is truly a treasure. I listen to each episode several times. I really appreciate all the work that has gone into these shows and can’t thank Grant enough for putting this invaluable information out for public consumption.
“Any one willing to challenge what they think they know in order to learn more about the past present and future should put down everything and listen to Grant’s conversations... at least twice.”
