Ritholtz does a great job getting interesting people for interviews and generally a good job asking questions. Occasionally gets off focus and too cute or "me-too"y. Nonetheless a must listen for the ride too/from work. Helluva lot better than the TV talking heads. Previously listened on Bloomberg radio, which was good but did not save stopping points.
