  • ***Must Listen*** [i3] Podcast: MarketFox interview with Corey Hoffstein, Newfound Research. Fantastic episode. Corey goes over what two events led him to believe capital preservation should be priority #1, how trend following helps eliminate the left tails but underperforms the best years, why trend following is great for a post-retirement portfolio, what he calls the frustrating law of active management, what fundamental strategies he’d invest in (special situations), and then a review of some of his recent papers.

He starts with his unique background, writing at the Motley Fool, his current fund (The Collaborative Fund) and what they’re focused on, and the last two edges in investing: behavioral and time horizon.

  • The Indicator from Planet Money: Grey Poupon and The Cultural Divide. Income inequality has been rising in the US, but this podcast addresses how the cultural gap between the rich and poor is also growing, from food to movies. One of my favorite episodes by The Indicator. [August 2, 2018–10 minutes] iTunes Podcast | Overcast | Stitcher | Website Link

The Rest

  • The Science of Success: What Everyone Gets Wrong About Willpower & Grit — The Science of Long-Term Success with Dr. David DeSteno. I heard former NFL front office staffer Mike Lombardi recommended the guest’s new book, Willpower Doesn’t Work, and absolutely loved it.

  • Planet Money: Remembering When Driverless Elevators Drew Skepticism. I saw @IntrinsicInv post this old episode on twitter and thought it was great. As we come closer and closer to having autonomous vehicles, this episode is helpful to remember how humans have dealt with things in the past.

She talks about the four things to do what to bring meaning into your life: belonging, purpose, transcendence, and storytelling.

  • This American Life: 652: ICE Capades. Regardless of what side of the aisle you’re on, this is an amazing story. The first 24 minutes are about a daughter and mother being separated and then reunited. The rest is about a separate department of ICE that most people, including myself, have never heard of, and a sting that occurred to catch someone taking over $700,000 of fake bribes to help people get citizenship.
