“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.”

Today on the podcast Michael Covel talks to world renowned paleontologist Jack Horner. Horner was the technical advisor for all of the “Jurassic Park” films. You might question why Michael Covel would have a paleontologist on his podcast, but the reason is to listen to how Horner thinks. Horner is dyslexic and talks about the process of learning. He uses words like “opportunistic”, “scavenger” and “devil’s advocate”. Same attitude, different field. Outside of the system, against the status quo. Covel and Horner discuss passion; why you’d break open a dinosaur egg rather than hold onto it as precious material; how Horner attributes his way of thinking to dyslexia; the shapeshifting dinosaur hypothesis; “chickasaurus” and the idea of dinosaurs and chickens intersecting; the accuracy of the “Jurassic Park” dinosaurs; whether the T. Rex was a scavenger v. predator; and how Horner came to his way of thinking. More information can be found at www.museumoftherockies.org. Free trend following DVD: trendfollowing.com/win.
