Good for Unilever. I hope it sells Lipton to the right buyer.

Soooo, why would you admit to being a tsla bear? Kinda like saying you're into the flat earth thing, you're just incredibly wrong. Any other great stocks I shouldn't own? My 17yo son's first stock purchase was 1 share of tsla and he's almost tripled up in 3 months, should I tell him he's doing it all wrong?

really weak episode

"Throw that out the window" talking about proportional pay. The numbers are all that matters professional sports are still a business. This is a business podcast how can you not see how there will be a pay disparity until at least women's soccer brings in the same revenue as men's soccer.

That was a really weak walk-back on yesterday's 'charges weren't pressed so he must be telling the truth' defense you gave of Richard Liu. What was your motive in defending him, I wonder? Boy's club or skin in the game?

Dropping knowledge and humor in a tight 4 man weave. And the show is as geeky and fun as that previous sentence.
