How We Got Here - the most interesting college lecture that you've never heard. 

Coming Soon


The Show

Two friends discuss the world we live in and how we got here. This podcast grew out of the in-depth conversations that Brooks and Jim have had throughout the years. Each episode has a central topic that covers a bit of history, politics, and finance. Brooks’ inquisitive nature paired with Jim’s range of expertise lends well to fascinating discussions and debates.  The episodes span the globe, the centuries, and bring it back again.
