The table gets turned in this episode and Nathan Martin (A two time guest on 2BwS, woop-woop) asks the questions. We explore topics such as my background, which tends to go on longer than it should have... but who doesn't like talking about themselves, c'mon! We also talk about the show; past guests, thoughts I've pulled away from my guests, what I've learned, yadda-yadda.
The interview eventually breaks down into the typical type of conversations that me and Nathan have had. The conversation seems to follow a narrow stream of consciousness and I think most everyone will appreciate the candidness of both Nathan and I. These are the types of conversations that more people should be having.
I don't think anywhere in the interview are we complaining about what THEY are doing to US. That is an important statement for me to make, because I don't want to view myself as a victim of the system, or some higher power (Royal Order of the Frog? hmmm.).
I hope you enjoy this episode

This is not an official episode, be not disappointed. This is a quick chat about what is going at the Two Beers With Steve Factory. I thought there were a few pieces of business to take care. Here are a couple points that I make:
1. I talk about what Two Beers With Steve is about
2. I announce that we are working on selling Official Two Beers With Steve T-Shirts. Arrive in style this summer for the family picnic with one of our doozy t-shirts. Impress your friends and family.
3. We will be interviewing Steve of Two Beers With Steve in the coming weeks, stay tuned.
4. Become a friend on Facebook
Thank you, Thank you,
Denninger discusses the Federal Reserve, Congress, the financial markets, inflation/deflation, and whether or not gold is a safe haven.
This interview starts out with Karl Denninger recounting his days as CEO of an internet company during the go-go 90's. Karl recalls the stress of betting the company every 18 months to keep in line with the latest technologies and that it was understood by everyone in the industry that we were clearly in a bubble at the time. The bubble promptly busted, but by then Karl had already exited stage left.
Karl was called back into action by the activity in the Asian stock markets in 2007. Since then he has remained an active trader and analyzer of the markets. You can catch up with Karl Denninger at his Market-Ticker blog.

Erik Townsend stops in to discuss the financial markets and give his viewpoint of what it is like to be living in Hong Kong.
This episode could easily be a two-part episode. The first half hour is spent giving our roundtable a different angle on China and Hong Kong than what we Westerners see in popular media. It was truly an eye-opening discussion as I had this idea of China being a country with little identity besides rice patty fields and toy factories.
The second part, which encompasses about an hour of discussion, focuses on the financial markets. Erik chats with us about his investment strategy, hint: he is a speculator, and what that strategy means as far as what tools he uses and his investment duration. After a few moments of strategy the conversation turns to an overview of where we have been and where we are now.
Great episode and it was great to have all the seats at the roundtable filled.
