This is a really good podcast. Hope to see more
This article is really amazing. https://takesurvey.onl/www-homedepot-com-survey/
how the heck does a damn criminal get a voice?
Thanks for sharing https://ukmenuprice.today/prezzo-menu-prices/
Thank you so much for sharing all this wonderful information https://www-lowes-com-survey.info/
this is similar to Uber, what started as a sharing ride turns into professional Uber services just like taxi.
Like the lawyer's slip about calling lawyers pirates.
Proud to say I don’t use Spotify!
It's great to hear https://stumbleguysonline.io
R we truly unlocking the truth?
You can stop people from profiting from your incarceration by...not committing a crime. I mean, it's pretty simple. Sharon, the Valley Girl with vocal fry in her voice isn't doing it for you. You sound like a high school kid punching above her weight.
Your producers sound like Millennial whiners.
Sounds like these people want to nanny us online. I want less moderation not more moderation. Facebook is entertainment and nothing more.
"They call it the American"dream" because you have to be asleep to believe it" -George Carlin
8 minutes into the America episode, and both of your producers, (one of whom is a researcher!) have shown that they didn't do their research. They're cherry-picking facts to provide confirmation bias. Not finishing the episode, and it's going to be awhile before I listen to any others.

Tarik seems not to understand what a fiduciary obligation is (and seems not to consider that it could be changed legislatively). A fiduciary's obligations are defined by the product. If I sell a product that explicitly aims to maximize profit within the constraints of X and Y, then I am not violating my fiduciary duties by failing to maximize profits overall. Likewise, I could sell a product that does not include profit in its objectives, and only those objectives (plus general considerations of best interest) would constitute my fiduciary duties. Tarik's retreat to a simple-minded version of fiduciary duty seemed either dim or evasive. That said, he was right to call out Matthew's (?) nonsense about how maybe it's profitable to be good. That argument is irrelevant to fiduciary duties. This conversation was mostly a mess.
You should include info on your guests in the show notes.
This episode largely missed the point, though Tarik came close to hitting it. First, the framing is wrong. We ought not be arguing over how companies should play by the Natural Laws of Economics (not justifying corporate responsibility with the promise of profit), but reaffirming the legitimacy of the public in regulating markets. WE make the rules and the markets. WE bestow limited liabilities to corporations--and for what in return? Second, ESG is pure BS. The marketing is that ESG is about reducing harms and improving the world. The reality is that ESG--AT BEST--is about quantifying and limiting risks to investors. E.g., ESG metrics do not generally measure a company's effects on climate change, but on limiting the risks climate change poses to corporate profits. Those are very different things that are often in opposition. Likewise, ESG's social criteria are generally narrow and internal, NOT social in terms of society. (Of course, we have to say "generally", because there are no uniform standards.) Likewise with governance. Moreover, ESG is usually implemented as a minimum-criteria screen. It's just pure white-washing BS. ESG is a way for people to feel better about doing the same garbage they were already doing. Investment banks are just selling investors their own consciences--anemic and conveniently uninquisitive as they are. Also, what is this crap with praising the head of an investment bank, who finally gets around to mimicking any degree of humanity when he feels, at long last, that he can afford it? How is this different from anyone else who buys back their reputation? We are reliving the Gilded Age... and I wonder if this podcast is exactly the sort of BS it claims to detect.
