Bill has wanted to interview Adam since he heard Tim Ferris interview Adam at The 92nd St. Y. You can find one of his episodes with Tim Ferris at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSyMmleisQM. See also Adam's interview with Shane Parrish at https://fs.blog/knowledge-project/adam-robinson-pt1/. Finally, Adam recently did a 4-hour interview with Kevin and Fred. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sU_AM9VDgFs.
In this episode, Bill follows up on some of the thoughts Adam gave Bill via various interviews.
They start out talking about the concept of "things that are blatantly obvious and those that make no sense." This was one of the first concepts that Adam said where Bill said "wow, that's an interesting way to frame investing thoughts."
Following that conversation, Bill follows up on many of the issues that he's wondered about as he's found as he's listened to Adam. This is a wide-ranging conversation that covers a lot of investing and some life. We hope you enjoy.
