March 23, 2020 is a day that no financial market participant will forget. It was the day that America's S&P 500 put in its low and stock prices began their climb to "what looks like a permanently high plateau." More importantly, it was the day that Making Sense debuted. Yes, Jeff Snider and I decided that what the world really needed in the time of Covid and financial Armageddon was another financial podcast, and that we were going to give it to them. To commemorate the anniversary I proposed to Jeff that we do a retrospective. Jeff responded that he would love to - really. But he was reading through the Federal Open Market Committee's August 20, 1974 Memorandum of Discussion - again.
And so instead, let me provide you with a retrospective of sorts, by playing the Top 10 Podcast Introductions as voted on by me, the introducer. Starting with Episode 14 and continuing through Episode 58 I introduce the points of discussion with the purpose of ensnaring you, the dear listener. In two to three minutes I have to convey to you the topics in an educational or funny or poignant or enthusiastic or absurd way. Sometimes I use a metaphor, other times a literary reading. Sometimes it is a suckescess... sometimes I can't pronounce the word success. Either way, it is an adventure. Here are the Top 10 Podcast Introductions of Making Sense, Season 1.
