If you don’t know about his most recent book ‘GOING INFINITE’, you’ll probably want to buy it after listening to or watching this episode with Michael Lewis, author of multiple books and associated films, including The Big Short, Moneyball, Flash Boys, The Blind Side, Liars’ Poker, and more.

In this interview with co-host Ravi Joseph, we start out with Liar’s Poker and the wild west of the Salomon Brothers trading floor. Then, picking up from where we left off from our interview 18 months earlier, we probe why Michael had suggested that Crypto might be his next subject.

He describes the ascent and collapse of Sam Bankman-Fried. We hear how despite writing that “everything about him [SBF] was peculiar”, Sam develops a magnetism that attracts politicians, celebrities, and financiers alike.  Michael describes the fault lines, the failings and even feedback from speaking to him recently in prison, awaiting sentence. A fantastical tale and fabulously fun conversation.
