On the other hand I believe this guy is a genius. This was one of the greatest talks I have ever heard.

this guy is an idiot. Listened to the whole show and near the end claims buying a house is a horrible idea and that renting will make you richer. Unless you plan on moving every 2 years, buying is always better. How can someone on this show not realize that.

Waste of my time. Starting to think Shane is just another one of these guys who is using his platform to say "guess who I interviewed today" as opposed to "you'll never guess what interesting information I learnt in an interview today". I listened to this, like I listen to many of these podcasts. Open to learning. Yet, I simply could not get past the fact that, while not knowing or having seen a picture of Schwarzman, he sounds full of shit. Just another white, american-jew, happened to go to Yale & Harvard, investment bank job in the 70s, the rest is history so to speak. Why don't these guys ever say "look, let's state the obvious, I was the one who got lucky. There are thousands like me, but I'm the one who got the large slice of cake and the cherry". These guys pretend it's all them. 100% responsible for their own success. no luck involved. I find myself listening to guys like this offer nothing from a distance. The kid listening in Europe, Asia, or even the American kid who doesn't live anywhere close to Long Island, will get zero benefit from listening to this guy talk. His words are only beneficial to someone who is fortunate to be standing next to him, at some fancy party, discussing high-society privileged stuff about raping a few hundred million dollars from some unsuspecting entity. Compare his to the podcast with Naval. Naval speaks to all. Schwarzman speaks to 0.0002% of white amercia who have trusts and elaborate tax-avoidance schemes.

I really enjoyed hearing the potential root causes to emotional fragility as well as approaches to addressing that fragility in the context of the Call-Out Culture and pervasive reputational risk

this was by far the most useless episode of a (wonderful) podcast, partly because of the incomprehensible speech, but mostly because there's like zero information here aside from demagogy

The title makes it sound like a clickbaity one, but this is a truly amazing episode, Dalio has found a wonderful way to live and if more people lived and thought like him this world would've been an even better place. This certainly got me thinking very hard about my thought processes as well.
