Love the podcast. In my opinion, though, adding interview segments changes the dynamic of the show to something that can be found in other podcasts and takes time away from caller questions and makes the content of the show too narrow.

Justin loves Ray Dalio who is big on investing in China and Chinese companies, which Justin disdains. Justin, is Ray wrong about being bullish on China?
