[The Housing Helix Podcast] Panic, Confidence and Roving Gangs of Golfers

April 20, 2009 | 12:57 pm | Podcasts |

This week I talk about roving gangs of grown men carrying golf clubs (on Wall Street). Well, not really. I dabble on social networking, panic, TARP and higher mortgage costs. Plus the new new development marketing pitch and my worry about the Fall market (no pun intended).

And our new radio talk show on WOR! I was walking down an empty Wall Street financial district on Saturday morning only to see roving gangs of men with golf bags…

Check out the The Housing Helix Podcast – this week’s edition is:

[Introducing] The Housing Helix Podcast with Jonathan Miller

April 3, 2009 | 1:57 pm | Podcasts |

Because I don’t have enough to do, I’ve forayed into podcasting. I actually intended to start podcasting in 2005 but got sidetracked into this whole blogging thing. I am slowly figuring the technology out, and I’ve always wanted to do this and there is a lot to talk about when it comes to real estate.

I find myself listening to podcasts more often than music these days.

My rough plan, subject to change or whim, is to release a podcast at the beginning of each week to recap the prior week. When I release market reports or something significant comes up, I’ll provide a special podcast for that. I am already getting requests for interviews and that will definitely be incorporated into the content the coming weeks.

I came up with the name of the podcast because it represents how I view the whole swirl of information and living that surrounds housing. And of course, because it is semi-related to the word “Matrix” ’cause it has an “X” in it and suggests “Extreme” as in “Extreme Ironing.” (Hey, I’m being honest.)

So check out my new blog The Housing Helix and share your thoughts when inspired. And oh yeah, don’t forget to subscribe via iTunes.

Listen to you soon.

[Mandatory Reading (Please)] The Giant Pool Of Money

May 12, 2008 | 12:16 pm | Podcasts |

TALlogo

One of the biggest podcast downloads on iTunes is This American Life by Chicago Public Radio hosted by Ira Glass. It’s an hour long program that is diverse and interesting. The May 9th broadcast was particularly interesting to me called: The Giant Pool of Money.

It is a simple narrative on a complex subject and how the last five years evolved from a housing boom to housing crisis.

Think:

  • $70 Trillion Dollars
  • boiler rooms
  • keeping up with the competition
  • thirst for high returns
  • NINA loans
  • subprime investors
  • from tending bar to buying mortgage pools
  • Wall Street
  • 2% default rates actually 50% default rates
  • Very smart people using the wrong data to manage risk.

I listened to it twice just because it is rare to hear a complex topic that is presented so clearly.

Intelligence beat common sense to a pulp.

Listen to the episode.
