Bastion Asset Management's Michael Gentile spoke with me in this, my last interview of 2021. We did the obligatory look ahead into what to expect in 2022, but his outlook and investment style is longer-term than just one year, so we spend more time on where we are in the commodities super-cycle. We talked about gold and silver, oil, uranium, copper, and commodities overall. But we started with his background as a generalist investor and how he came to speculate in the junior gold and silver space. Don't be fooled by Mike's generally calm manner and lack of hype; he has very clear and strong expectations about the economy, our markets, and our investments that I found highly instructive--and entertaining.
