Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
This week Dennis leads off with the Georgia run-off and the Twitter Files, asking the $64 Question, “Where is the media outrage on election interference?”
Then Vivek Wadhwa, the Silicon Valley author, Harvard academic, and friend of Elon Musk lets loose with startlingly blunt criticism of his old friend. According to “The Vivver,” Musk is partying too much, is surrounded by idiots giving him bad advice, and is taking too many drugs that are “eating away his brain.”
Wadhwa also says Musk will never make his $44 billion deal pay off, that he should have paid a $1 billion kill fee to back out of the deal. And then returned with a bid of only $20B or $30B.
Dennis also talks with wealth advisor Ed Butowsky, a former 20-year Wall Street veteran who has managed hundreds of millions of dollars in client portfolios. He says Wall Street always has been bad at assessing risk, and FTX shows the results: a $200 billion wipeout in the value of various crypto coins and the bankruptcy of FTX, worth $32 billion only months ago.
“Eddie B” also talks about short-term bonds—everyone else says buy them now, and he disagrees. And he offers a few alternatives.
All that and The Parting Shot.

Any informed insights about the discussion about Musk?
That was a little snotty I Walton. Feel free to strongly disagree with about Musk but please address the man’s argument.
This is good! Please keep it and put it under your “Podcasts” menu. Thanks.
