In this Expat Money Show interview, Mikkel Thorup starts out by asking me to defend financial speculation—and then we dive in deeper. This is one of the most in depth interviews I’ve done. Mikkel asked me to explain what I do, how I do it, and what it takes to be a successful speculator.

He also asked me for lots of stories. Stories about Doug, stories about kicking rocks in Africa, encountering illegal miners in Colombia, and about the impact I’ve seen successful resource exploration have on people’s lives.



Note: the interview has Expat Money Show commercials in it. Those relate to Mikkel’s business, which is fine; I have no objection. However, for the record, I was not paid for the interview and I do not endorse anything advertised on the show.
