    Energy: What College Football Can Teach Us About Investing

    Sports have been a constant topic of discussion this year. Will they play? How will they handle COVID? This week, we ask a couple of different questions: (1) What can sports, specifically college football, teach us about investing? and (2) How might cancellation (or limitation to college play to only in-conference games) impact the economy? Jason Hall joins the show to help answer these questions and more. Whether you like college football or not, we hope this episode inspires you to look for investing lessons in some of your favorite hobbies and pastimes. You’ll be surprised at what you can learn if you stop and look around.
