Podcast episode 4: Big Cajun Man talks about working surviving 18 rounds of layoffs at Nortel, and more

If you follow me on twitter (@preetbanerjee), you’ll know that I decided to start a new podcast. I was trying to find some Canadian-content personal finance and business news podcasts but either I didn’t look hard enough, or most have stopped production because I couldn’t find anything. So I decided to start one up (again).

Mostly Money Mostly Canadian Episode 4

This week’s episode is now available on iTunes (You have to click through to “view in iTunes”). You can also just use the embedded player or MP3 download below.

This week:

  • Big Cajun Man, author of CanajunFinances.com, is this week’s guest. We focus on his perspective on Nortel as a “grunt” who worked there through the rise and fall, and as a survivor of about 18 rounds of layoffs!
  • Quick update on Greece – they can’t form a proper government and it’s freaking people out
  • Explaining what the heck The Volcker Rule and Glass-Steagall is
  • The Facebook IPO
  • The Skeleton run at Whistler – what does is sound like to hurtle down an ice track, face first a few inches off the ice? I have a recording of it.

Ratings on iTunes are appreciated :)

If you enjoy the podcast, please use the iTunes link to give it a rating (or even a review) if you have an iTunes account. The first three episodes both hit #1 in Business as well as in Investing – thank you!

Interested in being a guest?

If you would like to be a guest on the show, drop me a line at preet@preetbanerjee.com. Investors, advisors, fund managers, bloggers, whomever. Remember, it’s “mostly money” which means sometimes it won’t be about money.
