Podcast: “Uncontrolled Risk” Author Interview

Well I finally published my first podcast. The inaugural episode is an interview with Mark Williams, the author of Uncontrolled Risk. This was the book that was given away last week. I’m also happy to announce that he has agreed to give away 5 more copies of the book and you can enter for a chance to win a copy by leaving a comment on this post. Official rules are at the bottom of the post…

I had a great chat with Mark about the book, and while I haven’t read it yet, I plan to. Especially after speaking with him. The interview runs for approximately 15 minutes.

Here’s the podcast episode description:

This is an interview with Mark T. Williams about his book, “Uncontrolled Risk: The lessons of Lehman Brothers and how systemic risk can still bring down the world financial system”.We talk about Mark’s background, why the financial crisis can be traced back to poor regulation in Washington, why Canada’s banking system works so well and whether or not there should be a global banking levy.

Please pardon the headshot until I find time to create a proper “title page” for the podcast channel… Enjoy!

    I’m close to finishing reading “Too Big To Fail” which is a retelling of the events and backroom ongoings of the events surrounding Lehman’s downfall.

    This book sounds like a good complement as it will give the whys and hows, to the whats and whens addressed in Too Big To Fail.

    Keep up the great work on your blog!
