    New Podcast Ready for Subscribers

    The next podcast is up and ready for subscribers.  This second podcast went better than the first from a production standpoint, although I already have a raft of ideas for how to improve the third.

    In this one, Becca Martenson joins me as the co-host.

    As always, keep your questions coming!  They are the best part.

    Description:

    In this podcast entitled The Last Great Bubble, Chris discusses market activity for the past week,  employment and unemployment data, and the possibility of another great bubble in bonds hiding in plain sight before addressing subscriber questions.

    If a last great bubble lurks in our near future,  then an enormous advantage exists for those that can either step aside or take temporary advantage of its bursting.
