All-time Favorite Hidden Forces Podcasts

I have listened to almost every episode of this show since it’s inception. Out of over a hundred episodes here is a list of my all-time favorite episodes going back in chronological order. I will keep adding to this list as time goes on, so check back for updates!

There are over-time exclusive paid subscriber additions to every episode equally good as the main episodes themselves. I highly recommend the paid subscription to access this extra content.

Episode 137: May 18, 2020
“Trade Wars Are Class Wars” – This is the best podcast I have ever heard that dives deep into what is causing global wealth inequality and much of the instability that currently is at the heart of most financial systems. I highly recommend the full 2 hours! I just bought his book too!
Episode 134: Apr 27, 2020
‘Too much money chasing too little yield.’¬† What a novel concept! This explains¬† why investing is so damn hard in recent times and how the consequences of this affects us all. Timely episode!
Episode 124: March 2, 2020

Peter Zeihan provides some of the best geopolitical analysis. I bought his recent book Disunited Nations and although I fundamentally disagree with the books primary future prediction premise; that political instability of the future will be driven by lack of naval ship protection , everything else is great. Especially the historical analysis.
