Hi Erik. This e-mail probably comes a bit out of left-field (pun intended) since I don't exactly fall into your target audience. Nevertheless, I wanted to express how grateful I am for your show and how much I've learned in my four or five months listening. I'm a rank-and-file warehouse worker for a major logistics corporation in Florida, where I serve as a union shop steward. Politically, I'm a socialist to the left of Bernie Sanders, and while that would seem to put us worlds apart, I'm consistently impressed with your pretty in-depth analysis of the world economy, commodities and equities markets, and investments in general. Like the Right, the Left is full of oversimplifications that make great slogans but aren't terribly helpful in terms of analyzing concrete conditions. I started listening to your show during my graveyard shifts at work as part of my weekly podcast lineup, and it's quickly become my highlight of the week (on Friday, no less).
