Sovereign Man’s podcast with financial legend Jim Grant

Last week I recorded the most memorable podcast I’ve hosted in some time.

Jim Grant, editor of the famed Grant’s Interest Rate Observer, joined us for a discussion. Grant’s, in my opinion, is one of the finest financial publications out there.

Why on earth are you still letting big banks screw you?

Wells Fargo stole the headlines yet again today for defrauding its clients.

The bank was fined $1 billion today for selling over 500,000 clients auto insurance they didn’t need (which in some cases caused the owners to default on their car loans and get their cars repossessed) and for charging erroneous fees to mortgage[...]
