This week I have a very special guest years in the making.
Like another favorite episode, with anonymous guest Modest Proposal, this
conversation is with one of the stars of the financial twitter universe who
writes anonymously and goes by the pseudonym Jesse Livermore. I met Jesse 6
years ago after reading his unbelievably unique investing research, which
tackled all the big and interesting issues in markets. He now also works with
me as a research partner at OSAM, where’s he’s used our data to continue to his
search for truth in markets. Despite being one of the brightest minds I’ve
encountered he is also as humble and unassuming as they come. I’m at least a
slightly better person because of trying to emulate how he conducts himself. I
get to have many conversations with him that go from 0-100 fast, and I’m
thrilled to be able to share one of those with you.
