Good Content

Long time MoneyWeek reader, love the content of the podcasts but as other listeners have said the audio equipment probably needs upgrading, although this could partially be to do with covid and having guests talk over the phone etc.
If the audio was better I’d give it 5 stars.

Great work

I really enjoy Merryn & John’s work here. Very informative & interesting, pitched at just the right level. How about a Model INVT portfolio roundup every so often?
