This week is another example of how the podcasting world really is like a small fraternity/sorority where hosts often appear on each other’s shows.
Today it’s Felix Salmon, host of the Slate Money podcast, joining us on Better Off. If you’re not familiar with Felix, I think the best way to describe him is as a contrarian and/or curmudgeon...something he happily admits!
I’m a big Felix fan and have been reading (he did stints at Reuters, Portfolio Magazine and Euromoney) and listening to him for quite some time so I had a list of topics to cover, including:
- Corporate responsibility
- Active versus passive investing
- His ongoing relationship with Anthony Scaramucci
- The student loan crisis
- What’s next for the US economy
In addition to hosting Slate Money, Felix is currently the editor of Cause and Effect. Because we had so much fun, the interview went a bit long which means no caller this episode. But fear not! We’ll be back to our regular format next week.
