Episode #1 – Money & Happiness with Brian Portnoy

Today’s show is co-hosted by my colleague, Stig Brodersen, from the popular podcast, We Study Billionaires. Stig and I talk with Brian Portnoy, the director of Education at Magnetar Capital, a $13 Billion hedge fund and the author of The Geometry of Wealth: How to Shape a Life of Money and Meaning. Brian explores the role of money in a happy life.
