August 10, 2018
Kevin O’Neill joins us for hour one covering everything from investing and banking practices to NCAA rule changes.

Chief and Matty Weber close the show talking Cubs baseball, politics and the latest on the Ohio State football controversy.
Guests & Co-Hosts
Kevin O’Neill is our Wednesday and Friday morning sports guy. His segment emphasizes what happens off the field as much as what happens on the field. All businesses have their intrigue, but the inner workings of sports organizations find their way into the public domain frequently. Unless a rant from the Chief spills into Kevin’s segment (not an unusual occurrence), he will highlight some of those sports related business issues; but be advised that those highlights usually come with an opinion.

Wolf Richter is the CEO of Wolf Street Corp. and the editor-in-chief at Wolf Street, where he muses about economic, business, and financial issues, Wall Street shenanigans, European entanglements, and other things, debacles, and opportunities in the US, Europe, Japan, and occasionally China.
Wolf lives and labors in San Francisco. He has over twenty years of C-level operations experience, including turnarounds and a VC-funded startup. He earned a BA and MBA in Texas and an MA in Oklahoma, and worked in both states for years – before moving on.
He is the author of two books: BIG LIKE: CASCADE INTO AN ODYSSEY, a travel memoir of an almost regular guy who gets totally unstuck in Tokyo —a “funny as hell non-fiction book about wanderlust and traveling abroad”; and TESTOSTERONE PIT, a short, edgy, humorous novel about car salesmen, their customers, managers, and shenanigans at a large Ford dealership.
