After a 6-year, self-imposed exile from most secular media, I was truly honored to visit with Daniela Cambone of Kitco News. In an age where most financial journalists have become self-appointed, know-it-alls, mostly make statements versus asking real questions and then do battle with the person they are interviewing if they don’t like their answers, it was truly refreshing to be interviewed again by an exemplary professional.

Earlier this year, I did make a “brief” consideration of returning to the metals and mining industry, mainly due to my extreme bullishness for gold at the time.

In an industry that in my time there made me feel Mark Twain was right when he said a gold mine is a hole in the ground with a liar standing over it, I would indeed go back in some form if I knew the majority of people I would interact with would be a top-notch, honorable professional, as Daniela has clearly demonstrated over the years.

My sincere best wishes to her and Kitco, the world’s best gold website.

The following was my last video interview before yesterday. It happened to be with Daniela in 2013. Man, did I get old (and fat).
