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…
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.
