It’s been almost a decade since The Big Short by Michael Lewis came out and I recently realized I’d forgotten too much of this wonderful book.
So Michael and I decided to re-read this one and turn our discussion about it into a new podcast called Re-Kindled.1
We will be doing more of these in the future so if you have any ideas about books to cover feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On this show we discuss:
- Is this the GOAT finance book?
- Did this book make people worse investors?
- Was this a once in a lifetime trade?
- The genius of not profiling John Paulson for this book.
- The types of financial products that attract sleazy characters.
- The many terrific characters in the book.
- How crazy the subprime mortgage market was.
- How is it possible no one went to jail?
- Michael Burry vs. Joel Greenblatt
- Why it’s so hard to make money on big trades.
- Steve Eisman vs. Bill Miller
- The guys who started a hedge fund from their garage and made out big.
- The role of the ratings agencies in the crisis and much more.

1The original name we chose was Turn the Page but Re-Kindled was a late submission that was the clear winner.
