    I don’t think this content is for me but it oddly seems made for millennials ( or what some older marketing exec thinks is for millennials). My personal experience with RV was that I followed Raoul from a bitcoin comment in early 2017 on twitter and watched his boom and bust video later. I thought the content was so informative I immediately tried and subscribed. If I instead had seen this I would’ve thought it was some joke like CNBC fast money. ( which would be unfortunate because I LOVE nearly all rv content) I’m a 30 year old without prior investing experience or financial education.

    Maybe RV can re-package the AK content and market it to CNBC as a money-making endeavor. It would be a perfect little 4m filler between the "Cypto-carnage" block and "tech wreck" Block. I suppose its my choice not to click on these segments but this format and delivery seem so far removed from "financial media that matters" that it doesnt belong here.

    I think this format with AK is improving. At first, i found it highly annoying with its attempt at some sort of millennial/hip hop thing. It seems to be evolving into simply a fresh, young look at current issues. Raoul, if you're looking to connect with a younger audience through AK, I think you guys are getting there. This is much better than before and it not only discusses the crude oil drop, but goes a little below the surface as to the causes and resulting consequences.

    Regarding the Trump comment, I didn't take offense at this video and I am a Trump supporter. I have commented in the past about the inappropriate nature of the political jabs made by the video guests against Trump, but I think AKs comments were factually based. Also, I have noticed over the past month or so the political commentary has been mostly eliminated from the RV platform so I think Raoul et alia are making an effort which I have noticed and I appreciate.

    Obviously, we are in hyper-politicized environment, but we just need to remember that we will all be best served in the investment arena by sticking to the facts.

    Keep it up Raoul.

    The Trump dig is not becoming of Real Vision. Leave that to the Main Stream Media. Pisses me off.

    Oil prices are down because Trump wanted them down. Interest rates will soon drop too because Trump wants them too. Yes he really is that great and powerful!

    Why the Trump diss? I'd imagine many people involved with Real Vision are closet Trump supporters.
