    @2.40 , i could not have agreed more with the statement of not wating to make a glance over youtube video series. Sit down with a coffee, or glass of wine and absorb it. Please don't ever change this aspect. In a world full of skim reading, be the novel.

      Bearish yes - but most of the are bearish US equities - there is a worldwide market out there. Other countries and other financial instruments - where there is a bear, there is a bull (somewhere) ..

    I think overly big guests like Warren Buffet, Soros, Greenspan are far too obvious and boring. The suggestion of DSK however is a great idea. I'd also like to see Bruce Kovner on here. Some of the most interesting interviews I've seen so far on RV have been guys I've never heard of before. Alex Gurevich for example.

    You guys are absolutely on the right track. Let this be a marathon, not a sprint. You agree you want quality, so over then next 10 years don't let quantity get in the way.

    31 May 2015 @ 21:53
    Was hoping the interviewer would ask about how you came up with "The Chain"-Love That! Also, "Rainmaker". You guys rock and I just really really hope that the price is grandfathered for us earlybirds!

    There no longer needs to be a choice between 1.Good Content and 2. Quality presentation in HD. Now we can have both. RealVisionTV has arrived at the right time for the demise of TV and the Economy.

    I believe some problems reported about RVT , iPad or Chrome are most likely network bandwidth issues. Talk to your ISP about upgrading your network speed or your router. I used to be a performance guy

    I use Chome from my iPad Air 2. No problems, but you need to understand when refresh/login required. I love the HD videos. I learn as much from expressions almost as I do from content. Great content.

    I guess I'm in the dreaded podcast camp-I would greatly prefer more focus on delivery to iPhone and android than optimizing for a large screen tv (since I don't own one)

    RV has awesome content! Congratulations. I second Cliff on the iPad problems: wifi seems not able to handle the high definition streaming. Would a lesser format be less crash prone?

    I find the website much improved but still a bit cumbersome from an iPad. I still have restarts when using the site from google chrome.

    I use many of your interviews for what I call going down a rabbit hole. I go to the Internet for additional research on the topic and then determine investment opportunities. Thanks

    30 May 2015 @ 11:39
    Thanks so much for the financial information you are providing. As a financial neophyte I find the topics you cover like approaching the subject from an alternate universe and very seductive.

    Great stuff. I think you both have a top class product. I agree with Michael below saying to put this video as a free teaser on the site. Not sure why anyone would give that idea a negative vote?

    I'm very appreciative you've built a platform to allow some of the brightest minds to share their wisdom in more than just a commercial sound bite. Would love to see an interview with Michael Burry.

    Why won't the two of you admit that there is a financial elite who lie about what is going on and if you tell the truth you are not allowed on. 70 YEAR DEBT BUBBLE is ready to blow.

    A founding fan. Watch almost everything. Constantly impressed. Have given the "add references" feedback myself. In fact I really want to invest (DSGAsia, Vulpes, Laguna Bay).
  • EA

    26 May 2015 @ 11:10
    Yeah, definitely Stan Druckenmiller (only one of the best investors in history), Jim Grant and get Alex Gurevich back for a Think Piece or V Questions.
  • KS
    Kathleen S.
    26 May 2015 @ 10:57
    I think that there should be debates also - otherwise it is like CNBC interviewing CEO's where they are given soft ball questions. Put two opposing sides in the ring and let them go at it.

    Another idea: debates. Paul Hodges thinks energy prices are going down due to demographics changes. Andrew Lees think they are going up due to peak easy oil. Put them in an arena.

    with you from beginning. Absolutly the best by orders of magnitude! Suggestions for interviews: at the epicenter of finance was Alan Grteenspan. At the epicenter of investing Warren Buffett.

    Instead of full transcripts, how about references. It would come in handy to have names and book titles that I can copy and paste into google.
