Episode 67: A Traders Podcast Retrospective


This very special episode is a Traders Podcast Retrospective, which means we’ll be revisiting some of the highlights (according to producer Jason Pyles) from among the first 66 episodes of the show. The objective of this episode is to lure newer listeners back into our archives to catch up on all 22+ hours of The Traders Podcast.

Faithful listeners will recognize excerpts from previous shows where Rob and his guests discussed The Unique Ability, the film “Wall Street” and the idea that greed is good, peak-performance training and trading, and why we trade for a living.

Jason will guide your tour on this walk down memory lane, and he’ll even share a Rob Booker story from Wheeling, West Virginia — back when we ran our previous podcast, Trader Radio.

Episode 40: Where and Why We Trade for a Living

Rob Booker is joined again by his guest co-host, “The Coach” Scott Welsh, podcasting from Columbus, Ohio. Scott and Rob begin this episode by talking about the importance of knowing what you want when striving to achieve a goal.

Next your trader hosts discuss whether the location you’re trading from affects your trading, and whether you can trade from anywhere in the world (and by the way, where are the greatest places in the world to trade from?). Rob and Scott also consider Las Vegas: Is Sin City the perfect place for traders? Can automated trading enable you to trade from anywhere? Rob lists his favorite trading locations, and he reveals his pick for the greatest city of all time. And if you live in a certain location — which is named in this episode — and you’d like Rob and Scott to come and trade at your home with you for a week or two, then contact us at producer@traderspodcast.com.

Also, in this episode, we introduce a new segment called “Dumb Things That Rob Does,” which pertains to today’s topic.

And finally, Rob concludes Episode 40 with a remarkable epilogue that enumerates the reasons why, exactly, we trade for a living by recounting an unforgettable story about his friend, Mickey — a trader who realized his dreams.

Please leave us a comment, telling us where you trade from and where you’d like to trade from.
