Joe and Emily round out 2018 with a Christmas special, recorded partially in Santiago, Chile, and partially from North Carolina and Washington, D.C., respectively. In Chile, the two chat about some key takeaways from meeting Eduardo Bitran, and details surrounding the Albemarle—Mineral Resources deal. Two special guests drop by the studio: Alejandro Hess shares his views on lithium stocks, and Dr. Alonso Barros gives us some color on the situation with indigenous communities in the Atacama. Joe shares his thoughts on the failure of the wave of oversupply to materialize, and where he thinks the big banks have gone wrong in 2018. The two close with rapid fire questions about favorite podcast moments, new year resolutions, and Joe’s encounter with Bruce Springsteen (before he was a liberal).
