    The Squawk Pod podcast is a fantastic resource for individuals who are unable to catch the TV show version due to busy schedules or other commitments. It provides a recap and highlights of the show, making it easier for people to stay updated on important information and news.

    One of the best aspects of The Squawk Pod is its ability to condense all the financial news into one brilliant and entertaining show. The hosts deliver smart and relevant content every day, keeping listeners informed about the latest developments in the business world. The podcast also features interviews with thought leaders like Bill Gates, who provide valuable insights into topics such as vaccines and therapeutics.

    However, one downside of the podcast is that there can sometimes be issues with hosts talking over each other, which can come off as rude and disrupts the flow of conversation. This can be distracting for listeners trying to absorb information or follow along with discussions.

    In conclusion, The Squawk Pod is an excellent podcast that offers important information for investors and covers a wide range of business-related topics. Despite occasional interruptions from hosts talking over each other, the podcast remains a great source of unbiased news and open-minded interviews. It is definitely worth listening to if you want a condensed version of the TV show on-the-go.
