“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 to author Tom Asacker, author of "The Business of Belief: How the World's Best Marketers, Designers, Salespeople, Coaches, Fundraisers, Educators, Entrepreneurs, and Other Leaders Get Us To Believe." Asacker's book applies to not only all of Covel's world (trading), but it applies to anyone's chosen profession. Asacker and Covel talk about choice and distraction/distrust; belief and its connection to how people make decisions and habit; faith healers and how information can change our beliefs and perceptions; how the supermarket works as a metaphor for belief and choice; Vernon Smith and Daniel Kahneman; the instinctive "feeling" mind vs. the slow, deliberate thinking mind; leading people to choose themselves vs. just getting a job; thinking like a child; comfort vs. desire; why those that have nothing to lose can put themselves in the best position for success; pulling the curtain back on your own mind to determine what your own mind is doing to prevent you from living a full life; the power shift to the individual via the internet; why we see what our minds are conditioned to see; practice, hard work, and passion; the metaphor of baseball, perception, belief, and behavior; thinking your way to a change vs. acting your way to a change; Alan Watts, and the question of "What if money was no object?".
