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 44: Money Never Sleeps

In this fourth part of four episodes on movies about trading, Rob Booker and Jason Pyles focus their discussion around the trading movie of all trading movies, Oliver Stone’s 1987 classic, “Wall Street.”

With this backdrop, Rob and Jason talk about the temptations and pitfalls of insider trading, the meaning behind “greed is good,” how you know if you’ve got what it takes to be a trader, what sacrifices being the best at trading for a living will require, the price of making a million dollars and why it’s not difficult to make money (if you’re willing).
