Great podcast

Have listened to most of Dans podcasts aired over on finance daily, this podcast is clear cut and no frills advertisements with great info for everyone. I would highly recommend this podcast to you while commuting or working it is great info, but highly opinionated authors make it diverse but disagreeing at times.
