Jeff Gundlach: Full Podcast, Now Online

This past weekend was the inaugural show of Masters in Business. Its a new Bloomberg radio show (read how it came about here).

The first show was an interview with Jeff Gundlach, who has become one of the bond market’s most influential and savvy investors. His firm, Double Line Capital, manages about $50 billion.

Over the weekend, the stream of the one hour radio show was posted to Soundcloud.

The full & uncut Interview with Jeff Gundlach is now available. Its  about double the length of the radio show. It includes:

• Short intro/explanation of what the show is;

• Full one hour radio interview (Its commercial-free and clocks in at 36 minutes)

• Full half hour podcast.

All told, its over an hour (1:09) of great Gundlachian content. I am very pleased with how this came out!

You can download the entire thing here (click, then scroll down, then right click “Download this link”).
