It's Good To Be Turd
If you've been a Turdite for a while, you know how amazing I find all of this. A year ago, I'm just this dope with a MacBook and a few strongly held opinions. Now, I'm MacBook-toting dope who runs one of the Top 5 PM-themed websites in the world. Seriously, how weird is that?
One of the true perks of being The Turd is that I've been able to strike up relationships with a lot of people who actually know what they're doing. At any moment, I could pick up the phone and call or email a whole bunch of folks who, just a year ago, would never have taken my call. I've been able to meet and speak to people with whom I would normally never be able to contact.
One such amazing encounter occurred back on Sunday evening. The nice folks at http://www.webbotforum.com/ asked me to participate in an hour-long interview of the great Jim Rogers. They even let me ask the first couple of questions! The full interview was just posted to their YouTube channel and the links are listed chronologically below.
I highly encourage you to take the time to listen to the interview. Jim has forgotten more about commodity trading than most of us (combined) will ever know. However, his typical interview is on financial TV and it usually covers the same, boring topics and leaves little room for expansive answers and follow-up. Let's just say that this was not the typical interview. Enjoy!
Again, thank you all for making this possible. One day, when I am rotting in my government re-education/hard labor camp, I'll be cursing the time I spent as Turd. For now, though, I feel overwhelmingly blessed. TF
