Volatility Voicemail: Listener questions and comments

Comment from JLC - That $VIX 60 guy is just nuts. He's just trying to make a name for himself with that prediction. $SPX wld need to drop over 10% to be right.

Question from FContangotrader - What is your thought on $VIXH? Maybe every episode you can give an intro into various Vol ETN and ETF. Thanks and keep with good work
