On this episode, I'm happy to have Philip Tetlock, professor at the University of Pennsylvania. He's the co-leader of The Good Judgement Project, which is a multi-year forecasting study. He's also the author of Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction and Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know? The subject of this interview is how we can get better at the art and science of prediction. We dive into what make some people better and what we can learn to improve our ability to guess the future. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.

On this episode I have Jason Zweig. Jason writes The Intelligent Investor column for the Wall Street Journal. He has also written books like Your Money and Your Brain, The Little Book of Safe Money, and taken part in revised editions of the cult classic The Intelligent Investor. He’s got a new book coming out called The Devil’s Financial Dictionary, which we’ll talk about. Jason is an extraordinary person who offers historical perspectives on today’s seemingly important financial news.

We talk about a host of things, including what his day looks like; why he adds a philosophical and historical view to his columns; the relentless flow of news; his new book The Devil’s Financial Dictionary, what the average investor should do and so much more.
