Quoth the Raven - Chris Irons

yes the US Treasury secretary did this

If you have never heard Chris Irons or his Quoth the Raven podcast, you may not know that he often uses colorful rated R language when he speaks about the financial markets.

Do indeed listen to this podcast if adult language does not offend you. Do listen if you are interested in hearing someone explicitly speak about how they view financial markets currently.
