Waters Wavelength Podcast Episode 67: A Farewell to Dan

Dan and Anthony talk about how technologists—and traders—are portrayed in TV and on the big screen, and just how accurate those portrayals are.

Waters Wavelength


This podcast is dedicated to co-host Dan DeFrancesco, who, starting Monday, will move over to Waters’ sibling publication, Risk, where he’ll write about the commodities sector. To start, Dan discusses his new remit and Anthony talks about how the podcast will progress going forward (0:40). Dan then touches on his three favorite stories, which we’ve put in front of the paywall for all to read, including his feature on the Consolidated Audit Trail (9:00), the struggle to find talent (12:30) and two cover stories (16:30) that particularly stand out for him. (See below for links.)

While we will miss Dan, the Podcast will continue uninterrupted. Tune in next week to hear IBM’s Marc Andrews talk about how the company is using Watson to improve surveillance and compliance needs.
