Put That Coffee Down

Great Quarter, Guys

  • Could this be the proverbial nail in malls’ coffin?
    • In Episode 30, Andrew and Kevin reunite with an original host and the creator of the show’s name, Seth Holm, to discuss the future of malls, brick-and-mortar and retail overall. Seth spent nearly 10 years covering consumer and retail stocks at an Atlanta-based hedge fund before joining the Freight Intel Group last April. Can malls reclaim their place as monuments of American consumerism, and should they even try?

    • Host John Kingston also will look at an aspect of the oil and gas business that could be good news for the trucking sector: Some activity may be coming back. It may not be a lot but for all the trucks sidelined in the oil patch, it might be a “green shoot.”
