Talking Squawk, the official "Squawk Box" blog, provides tidbits, insights and some sarcastic reflections on the WEEK THAT WAS and the WEEK TO COME from the notepad of the show's senior executive producer.
It's a perfect venue for "Squawk Box"—a who's who of corporate leaders, megabankers, policymakers, Hollywood A-listers, hedge fund honchos, billionaire financiers and, of course, our intrepid co-hosts Joe Kernen, Becky Quick and Andrew Ross Sorkin.
Which means before we get to all the serious stuff, we have a link to the video of Joe touring the local "High Altitude" brewery, and our crew couldn't travel to Switzerland without giving curling a try.
But we actually did some work, too. It's hard to sum up all we learned and who we met. It's a true example of when it rains, it pours. But the interviews are worth a closer look, so I'll link to many of them below and you can pick and choose. (OR JUST WATCH THEM ALL!)
All you have to do is fill out a perfect NCAA March Madness college basketball pool, and Dan Gilbert of Quicken Loans will send the check in the mail.
It's a good thing Warren Buffett is insuring this contest!

@chuckleavell (He's the fifth Rolling Stone, and he hung out in the studio Tuesday playing some classic rock!)
@groovebookApp (Kevin O'Leary of "Shark Tank" brought this phone-to-photo book company to us, and we signed up instantly! Great idea!)
With Joe and Becky on the road, their years-long grudge match was suspended for the week. (Apparently they don't do the Jumble in Davos!) Let's give them both a practice word to keep them fresh. Joe's bonus word of the week is DCLAER. Becky's bonus word is NFOCLA. Find the answers at the end of the blog.

"Embrace what you don't know, especially in the beginning, because what you don't know can become your greatest asset. It ensures that you will absolutely be doing things differently from everybody else."
