“Your questions were excellent questions. I enjoyed this very much.”

--Vernon Smith, Nobel Prize in Economics

“You’ve surrounded yourself with one of the most advanced group of mentors possible…The people on your podcasts, and people in your life, all are people with strong opinions, all people that make you think and make you grow. You just have some kind of an affinity for people like that, and that’s part of what makes you good at what you do.”

--Ed Seykota

“Michael Covel’s podcast has had over [9.5] million listeners and he’s completed [900+] episodes. He’s probably the most established podcaster on this list—and it shows. Mr. Covel’s podcast is great for those looking for alternative views on the market, those who are tired of hearing the same old stories told on CBNC and other traditional outlets. This is highly recommended if you are looking to expand your mind in investing. Mr. Covel has had some incredible guests, to include multiple Nobel Prize winners and world-famous investors. One of my favorite episodes was when Mr. Covel interviewed Annie Duke, a former professional poker player who has some incredible insights on decision making. Mr. Covel always has me thinking and Annie Duke only amplified my brain-wave activity.”

Michael Covel talks with Porter Erisman. His documentary film “Crocodile in the Yangtze” is the story of Chinese entrepreneur Jack Ma. Jack has assembled a net worth of over 3B USD all started from one little e-commerce site called Alibaba. Erisman’s film is a great window in to the cultural differences and similarities that exist across the countries of our planet. Even more specifically, it is an entrepreneurial manifesto for EVERYONE. Covel and Erisman discuss what it was like working with Ma; short-term vs. long-term entrepreneurs; the lack of knowledge/insight America has for China; the perceived threat of China to America; whether nationalism played into Ma’s success; the commonalities between the greatest internet entrepreneurial success stories; government interference with Alibaba; and how eBay was defeated by this small startup in China.
