An ILAB Callback episode to our original interview with Meb Faber from ILAB 15. Johnny and Derek create an all-new intro and outro to Sam’s interview to give an updated version of a timeless interview that is very much still relevant to today. We wanted to re-air this interview in preparation for Meb’s return on next week’s episode where he will talk about inflation.
