    Hope you can correct the mistake in the written intro; which states that Josh earned his undergraduate degree in physics at MIT. He earned that degree; as well as his JD and MBA, from an upstart school not far from MIT: Harvard. University. Thanks.

    Raoul, When you post an excerpt video like this one, would you guys mind putting a link of some sort to the full interview? In this case, searching "Josh Friedman" to find the full video was easy, but others such as the recently published "Strongman" was less straightforward since the title of the excerpt and full video are different.
