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 3, 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 Narrative Game Ep. 7 – McGuffins & Bitcoin™!

In the latest episode of The Narrative Game, Ben and Grant discuss bitcoin – or, to be more accurate, Bitcoin™! as Ben explains, in the wake of the Terra Luna collapse, how the original concept for the OG cryptocurrency has been co-opted by Wall Street and turned into a product.

Ben explains why the concept of the McGuffin is so vital to understand as the true nature of crypto reveals itself. The recent characterization of DeFi by Sam Bankman-Fried as nothing more than a box that has value because people believe in its value is the catalyst for Ben to pick apart how humans are wired to understand the world as a series of three-act stories.

Ben at his absolute best…

This Week In Doom – #5: Dr. Chris Keefer

Our guest on this edition of This Week In Doom is Dr. Chris Keefer, president of Canadians For Nuclear Energy and the host of the excellent Decouple podcast.

In an age of heightened interest in solutions to a burgeoning energy crisis, Chris’ work in the field of nuclear energy is a wonderful resource for anybody looking to understand one of the greenest of green alternatives.

Chris examines the problems facing nuclear energy as it seeks to gain wider adoption among a nervous public, dispels the myth of nuclear waste and offers his thoughts on where the industry goes from here, how it could improve its public image and the positive signs he’s seeing that there may finally be change in the air.

A truly fascinating, eye-opening conversation.

The Grant Williams Podcast: Tian Yang

My guest on this episode of The Grant Williams Podcast is Tian Yang of London-based independent research providers, Variant Perception in London.

Variant Perception’s pedigree is best-in-class and the breadth and depth of their research uses a framework of proprietary leading economic and liquidity indicators to identify investment opportunities across asset classes. Their indicators are a great blend which cover tactical, cyclical and structural time horizons.

In this conversation, we discuss what those indicators are telling us, how inflation changes the landscape, the signals being sent by term premiums and the sea change that may finally allow those brave enough to take on ‘The Widowmaker’ trade to come out on top.

This was a wonderful conversation. I hope you enjoy it.

The Grant Williams Podcast: Peter Zeihan

My guest in this edition of The Grant Williams Podcast is a man who finds both himself and his field of expertise at the very heart of recent events in Ukraine, geopolitical strategist and author, Peter Zeihan.

Peter’s books, The Absent Superpower, The Accidental Superpower and Disunited Nations have been incredibly helpful to me in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of not just the global geopolitical landscape as a whole, but also the individual countries involved in the escalating tensions. His upcoming book The End Of The World Is Just The Beginning is set to be an absolutely invaluable addition to his excellent work.

In what is an intensely though-provoking and painfully realistic assessment of the war in Ukraine, Peter pulls no punches in laying out where we currently stand, why we are where we are, and the many painful roads the world may well travel from here in the weeks and months to come.

This conversation isn’t for the faint of heart, but Peter’s understanding of the range of outcomes available to us is incredibly valuable at what is shaping up to be a pivotal time for mankind in so many ways.
