Animal Spirits is a weekly podcast where I get together with my friend and colleague Michael Batnick┬áto discuss the what we’ve been reading, researching, writing, watching, listening to, and thinking about. We talk about all things financial markets, personal finance, our favorite books, movies, and TV shows, dad life, the asset management business and more. Our goal is the make finance more accessible, speak in plain English, and share our own personal experiences in the markets.
