Have you seen the film The Big Short? It’s about the investor bets made against the U.S. housing market due to negligence and fraud involving mortgage-backed securities, which ultimately led to the “Great Recession” that began in December of 2007.
At the time, Jordan Harbinger was a young Wall Street attorney at a high-flying firm that specialized in — you guessed it — mortgage-backed securities. It wasn’t long until the firm was bankrupt, and Jordan was out of a job.
Interestingly, Jordan had started something called a “podcast” in 2006 while he was still in law school. He used the severance he received from his failed firm as seed capital to try to make a living from a new media version of a radio show.
Fast-forward ten years, and The Art of Charm podcast is at the center of a multi-million-dollar business. And yet, if you have preconceived notions about how a podcast becomes a business, you’re really going to want to hear Jordan’s story and advice.
