Own your ignorance!

I’ve been listening to every episode of this podcast for over a year now and find it both informative and entertaining with hosts that have great chemistry.

After this last episode that covered a listener question on marijuana stock in particular, I gotta say: Kara, listen to me. Love your ego, but when you don’t know something, own it! It was so clear you both didn’t really know about marijuana stock and Scott said as much, but you still tried to pretend you knew what was going on and made a pretty banal and shallow recommendation to the listener to hold his marijuana stock. You do this a lot and generally I brush it off as a quirk, but people listen to your advice and it’s important to give a thoughtful, informed response. When you don’t know something, it’s the true mark of a confident person to say so!

Insightful and entertaining

I love this show! There is so much information in each episode but the best part is that it’s just fun to listen to.
