Morgan speaks with Josh about Clash of the Financial Pundits: How the Media Influences Your Investment Decisions for Better or Worse.
There are a lot of smart investors. There are a lot of entertaining people. There are few of both. Josh Brown, The Reformed Broker blogger is one of them. He is as insightful as he is hilarious, which, after bursting onto the scenes a few years ago, made him almost overnight one of the biggest names in the financial media.

Josh sat down with Morgan earlier this week.
