A producer at CBC contacted me last week to see if I would be interested in filling in for Kevin O’Leary on The Lang & O’Leary Exchange. While I’ve been on as a guest for segments three times before, it was a real honour being asked to co-host with Amanda Lang for an entire show. It was lots of fun, and hopefully I’ll be back to try my hand at it again. The staff and crew were phenomenal.
Here’s the link to the video on CBC’s site. As many of you know, CBC’s video player doesn’t work for a lot of people, including myself. However it does work for most. Running time is about an hour.
We discussed various topics, and on one segment known as “off the chart” they find a chart that explains an unusual finding (doesn’t have to be business related) and chat about it for about a minute. In this episode the chart showed the correlation between clemency rates of judges versus when they had eaten. On a full stomach, clemency rates were over 60% but drifted down to ZERO right before meals. Interesting, but scary.
Here’s a shot of the “behind the scenes” from the set:
