Preston Pysh – From “Value” to BTC

Hosted by
Bill Brewster

Bill Brewster is a private investor. He cohosts the podcast Value: After Hours with Tobias Carlisle and Jake Taylor. Tobias, Jake and Bill met at a Berkshire Hathaway meeting and formed a lasting friendship. And, as it turns out, people really like the podcast.

While Bill tries to replicate Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger’s thought processes, he is heavily influenced by Bill Miller III, Stan Druckenmiller, and others. This podcast is his attempt to dig deeper into other investing/business philosophies and share the knowledge with the world.

In this episode Preston Pysh joins The Business Brew. Preston needs no introduction in the financial podcast world. But just in case… Preston Pysh is an authority in business, investing, and leadership. His business podcast is globally ranked #1 on iTunes for stock investing and numerous other categories. On Amazon, Preston is globally ranked as a top 100 business author. His work has been translated into numerous languages and he writes about international finance and central banking. His podcast, We Study Billionaires, has been downloaded millions of times per year. Preston has interviewed billionaire NBA sports team owners, Hedge Fund Managers, and global authorities in finance. His work has been featured on shows like The Colbert Report on Comedy Central, The History Channel, and many others. Preston is the founder of the Pylon Holding Company and he is a graduate of West Point and Johns Hopkins University. He was an AH-64D Attack Helicopter pilot and Company Commander with the 101st Airborne Division During Operation Enduring Freedom and he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal.

Bill used to listen to Preston when Preston co-hosted the Saturday “show” on The Investor’s Podcast Network; We Study Billionaires (see here). Bill has a habit of being late to ideas, so he was closed minded to Bitcoin while Preston made the case for Bitcoin. Fortunately for Bill, he does usually realize when he might be wrong/stupid.  So, he invited Preston on The Business Brew to discuss Preston’s transition from a “traditional value” investor to a Bitcoin bull. 

Regardless of whether you, as a listener, agree with Preston’s thesis, we hope you can learn a little about:

(a) how Preston thinks, 

(b) what it took for him to make a macro/currency call, and 

(c) the courage it took for him to make a call on something Buffett and Munger dismiss as silly.

We are grateful for him saying yes to coming on The Brew. Props on the BTC call Preston.
