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 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.

The Grant Williams Podcast: Luke Gromen

My guest in the latest episode of The Grant Williams Podcast is my good friend, Luke Gromen, publisher of Forest For The Trees.

With events in Ukraine happening at breakneck speed, the moves by Western nations to isolate Russia through a series of escalating sanctions have revealed weaknesses in the global financial system that bring into sharp focus a set of dominos Luke has been lining up for a number of years.

The dollar’s place at the heart of the financial system is now under serious threat after the sanctions placed on Russia’s central bank have fired a warning shot across the bow of every other central bank in the world.

What does this mean for gold? Oil? Bond markets? Currencies? Luke lays it all out in brilliant fashion as he explains why the moves of the last two weeks have changed the financial world as we know it forever.

The End Game Ep 30 – Mike Green

The End Game returns after a year-end hiatus and who better to mark that than our first returning guest of the series, the always-dazzling Mike Green of Simplify Asset Management.

In his first appearance back in July 2020, Mike left all those who listened dumbfounded with much of his insight as he explained the rise of passive and the problems it creates for markets unaccustomed to such a dynamic.

This time, Mike turns his attention to politics, geopolitics and markets as well as updating his thoughts on the influence passive investment strategies are exerting over risk markets in every corner of the globe. Once again, Mike demonstrates why he’s such a crucial voice in our search for The End Game.

This Week In Doom – #2: Rory Johnston

Episode Two of This Week In Doom sees The Chicken and me welcome our first guest, Rory Johnston, whose work at his Substack, Commodity Context, is absolutely indispensable and, given the current dynamics in energy markets, looks set to become more so with each passing week.

In this fascinating discussion, Rory walks us through the oil industry from some basic concepts to some of the more nuanced factors affecting supply and demand and offers a set of insights rooted in years of experience analyzing the sector for one of Canada’s biggest banks.

From pipelines to politics ,Rory breaks down the oil & gas sector with the precision of a surgeon, proving exactly why he was the perfect opening guest on This Week In Doom as we try to bring under-followed analysts and content creators to a broader (and deserved) audience…

The Narrative Game Ep. 6 – Metaverse & The Art Of Narrative

Ben and Grant take a trip into the Metaverse™ to examine how language has been weaponized in an age of Gain of Function research to enable political actors to control the narrative – aided and abetted by Big Tech.

Our innate human understanding of the three-act story arc is being used to cajole and persuade the citizens of the world’s largest democracies to act in very distinct fashion in order to maintain control, but how many of us see through the smokescreen laid by mainstream media and understand the forces aligned against us?

Ben explains the very deliberate way in which we are being desensitized towards money and the slippery slope that lays out before us in a deeply thought-provoking conversation that will have you pondering the possibilities long after the podcast ends…

Super Terrific Happy Hour Ep. 14: John Hathaway

Our guest as the Super Terrific Happy Hour returns from hiatus is a dear friend of us both who is gracing the podcast for a second time – John Hathaway of Sprott Asset Management.

The genesis of John’s latest appearance on the STHH was a recent presentation he gave at the Strong Conference in Colorado in which he laid out the case for gold as we enter 2022 and, potentially, a very different investing landscape to the one to which we’ve become accustomed over the last decade or two.

John offers his thoughts on inflation, what lies in store from the Fed, what that may mean for the gold price and how the mining companies might fare in this brave new world.
