Blockchain fixes Aussie bank issue
Any chance you guys could cover this story from a week ago: "Aussie big bank-backed IBM blockchain platform Lygon mints first guarantee" ? Seems pretty interesting and not being covered in financial press that I've seen
Tracey go buy a decent microphone
Hi guys, I love your show. Tracey, would you mind buying a decent microphone so we don’t have the feeling that you’re recording from your bathtub ? Best, Thomas
A great diversity of guests
This show isn’t just about financial markets.
A wide array of complex topics explained so simply!
The hosts are amazing in that they chose great guests, a wide array of topics and ask the right questions. I learned a bunch.
I am a regular listener. Been for a while. There have been some really good episodes; this one was very helpful. Keep up the good work
Informative and relevant. Thanks for the content. This is my laziest review. Sorry
A very interesting discussion on very complex issues.
Love Odd Lots
Enthusiasts of Bloomberg’s various podcasts (think Masters in Business or Surveillance) will likely already know and love Odd Lots. Spanning the gamut of lay person armchair finance talk to technical Market and Econ analysis this podcast is great. For the dedicated listener you will be able to deduce overarching themes such as Modern Monetary Theory (still waiting for them to have Ice Cube on to speak about that) and Stock Market stuff I care less about. The two presenters interweave their questions with a great level of expertise and naïveté. Perfect for a novice listener like me and hopefully for experts as well. Also the sound quality is fine, I don’t know what all these reviewers are complaining about. Maybe they can start a go fund me for a new microphone for the presenters but I don’t see the need. The pod cast is great!
Impressive guests week after week. Topics are complex but generally easy to digest. Joe needs a new microphone though :/
Love Tracy and Joe. Wide range of topics that reflect current developments within the global financial system.
Both quirky and comprehensive, Odd Lots is a great listen. I appreciate Joe and Tracy’s discourse. Deep dives on all things macro and micro investing with some historical and “other”. A weekly listen for me!
Great Listen - Every Episode
One of my favorite Podcasts. Great range of guests that explore a variety of topics. Led by the angelic voices of Tracy and Joe hard hitting questions about Bitcoin and MMT always quicken my commutes.
You’ll learn stuff that makes you smarter - in a timely matter
Both hosts’ voices are just fine.
Interesting Finance Podcast
Good for those interested in markets/finance, would like to see the views of guests challenged more
The best finance podcast out there, really interesting topics and guests, also Joe’s voice is super soothing
Interesting, insightful, and fun! Wide ranging topics that relate back to investing.
Great guests and themes. One of the top finance podcasts out there.
The podcast is good. Wide variety of view points, the hosts are smart enough to ask questions that aren’t being covered elsewhere, and the content isn’t dumbed down enough to feel infantilizing while still being accessible to most lay people. Give it a listen!
Great guests every time, love that both hosts have their own interests and specialities but have good rapport with eachother and can always ask good questions.
Knowledgable and Well Constructed Show
The hosts and guests always present interesting, engaging, and informative information. Always worth listening.
Outstanding guests, timely and interesting topics, well-prepared and affable hosts and probably some very good editing make this a fantastic podcast. Any slander about a face for radio/voice for twitter is likely just fud from some vengeful bitcoinista ...
Great daily listen
One of those podcasts I look forward to listening to every day.
Great show. Terrible music
This show is excellent. Informative and entertaining. Worth listening despite the music
Macro Year Ahead Episode
Hi guys - the Macro Picture heading into 2021 was fantastic. I have not heard these 2 guests before but they were great and I’ll follow them going forward. You guys do a great podcast - thanks for all the content in 2020 and all the best for 2021..!
Part of why this pod is great
Note to podcast producers: One sponsor! Short, simple ads! PGIM, I don’t know who you are but because your ads are short and non intrusive, I will remember you! Also, the best finance podcast out there. Succinct, thoughtful, skeptical, open minded.
Economist Michael Hudson show!
The Greek debt crisis originated from heavy government spending and problems escalated over the years due to slowdown in global economic growth. When Greece became the 10th member of the European Union on Jan. 1, 1981, the country's economy and finances were in good shape, with a debt-to-GDP ratio of 28% and a budget deficit below 3% of GDP. But the situation deteriorated dramatically over the next 30 years because fiscal profligacy, which is defined as wasteful and excessive expenditure, caused deficits and debt levels to explode.
Topics are usually pretty good for lay people that find this subject interesting. As stated in so many previous reviews but clearly nothing done about it is the audio quality of both hosts but especially Joe’s. Weird hill to die on
Trendy, superficial, ignorant
Not worth the time. Acquiescent, pedestrian questions from hosts who seem wholly ignorant of methods, validity, generalizability, etc. Guests are usually founts of buzzwords, neologisms, and euphemisms employed to mask their own poor reasoning and lack of value-addition in financial systems. Discussions are cursory and simplistic to the point of being irritatingly misleading. As is seemingly required of most podcast hosts, a great deal of vocal fry, up-talk, and "listing" are used... which I would tolerate if the content were worthwhile.
I’m impressed with their guest list—or at least the ease with which they snare them— but not with the hosts. The chemistry between the two cohosts is often awkward but that’s a small irritant. The bigger problem is that they spout fountains of conventional wisdom and so their questions rarely put their guests on the spot. Clarification rather than challenge is the name of the game here. Tracy Alloway has a particularly gushing manner sometimes at the guest but usually to the “importance” of the subject at hand.
Joe needs a better mic
Great show, however, Joe really needs a better microphone. The sound quality is pretty bad when he talks.
the financial world explained
The hosts explore a variety of topics from markets to economics. The guests typically explain complex issues in easy to understand ways.
Takes somewhat dry material and makes it more accessible with interesting speakers
A grouper user
Please provide a sound money, Austrian contrarian view
Will you please invite Peter Schiff on to offer some balance on to the “World is Angrier” episode content and to the MMT discussion? Please avoid confirmation bias and have a true sound money thinker provide some meaningful debate. Rep Pressley is clearly clueless on economics. Balance your content with a libertarian, sound money voice once in a while. Listening to Ayanna Pressley is infuriating. Same liberal message- more government, more spending fixes everything. And the economy wasn’t good before COVID. We are on the precipice and interviews like this one obscure the bigger problems that face all Americans and will affect the poor and middle class the most. Straightening the pictures while the house is burning down. Enjoy the show. Thanks
Favorite economic podcast
Fair and balanced. Always interesting guests. Great questions to elicit thoughtful answers. Keynes would be proud!
The Zack Carter interview was inspiring and terrifying, and spot on. I am choosing to be hopeful.
I’ve really enjoyed this podcast. They’ve been extremely insightful and timely. I would like to see more more balanced economic perspectives, such as Austrian economics, versus the heavy focus on Keynes and MMT recently.
This has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. I stumbled on it a few months ago. It’s very informative—I feel like I’m learning a lot about economic issues. I think Tracy and Joe are great too! I like their style. I think it used to have one commercial in the middle of the podcast a few months ago, but now it’s two. My one request would be the to limit the podcast to one commercial in the middle and include any other ads at the beginning and/or end.
Poor audio quality and unnecessarily long
The audio is not up to par with that of peer podcasts. Please help your guests in particular calibrate their setups before recording. You can and should reduce the length of your episodes by 1/3. Few podcasts run for 45+ minutes. For starters, you can introduce the topic sooner in the episode.
Odd, Yes. Insightful, Yes.
Designed for true macro economists and global business investors. Very unique topics with deep dives, using historical information and topical guests. The hosts interact well together, and provide valuable summary thoughts at the end of each show.
Great info, poor audio quality
I enjoy the podcast...but the audio quality really needs help!!
Audio quality is terrible
Good topics and guests but audio quality is so bad it’s not worth listening to
Great pod, great hosts and great guests!!
Why are the mics bad?
Great podcast, but really strange that the mics of the hosts are so bad.
If you can get past the corny humor and the less-than-professional audio quality this is the best podcast on finance and the economy. Joe and Tracy have the most interesting and insightful guests and they both ask penetrating questions. I look forward to new podcasts every week.
Detailed and accessible
The content: detailed and nuanced but accessible. While it can wander into the weeds at times, it always makes it way back with a good explanation of where it went. Topics and guests are timely yet varied. The presenters: good chemistry and use of contrasting styles. Together, they hit all the right notes/questions and make sure to bring the audience along through heady material. Joel can ask a question in three ways before allowing a response but it is more irritant rather than impediment. Enjoy!
Heartbreaking to hear this
CV19 discussions... “...more direct cash grants to larger corps that are currently getting help through the Fed programs, through PERSUASION or FORCE, have them keep more people on the payroll.” Implied gov. Force? Persuasion? Really? Going full gov takeover? More cash to fix a more cash problem? Would love to debate this kid. ”Widespread view that this(crisis) is nobody’s fault.” That view is held on CNBC, Cramer, and this guy. It’s not the people’s view. It’s a further wealth dividing view. Not the forum to go on a long winded rebuttal to everything said, long story short, please avoid the this sheep feed for all of our good.
How is this guy on tv/radio with that voice?
Most informative financial podcast
The hosts Joe and Tracy have created a show that informs the listener on the most interesting and less discussed topics. I come away having gained knowledge on a topic I never would have understood on my own. I feel I have gained some secrect information that none of My work colleagues know. The guest are incredibly knowledgeable and perfectly chosen to help explain the chosen topic.
Host sounds like his face is stuck in the Blue Steel pose.
Joe and Tracy, hosts of the Odd Lots podcast, highlight all aspects of business, investing and more in this can’t miss podcast! The hosts and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!
