Best podcast

Love Scott and Pat.

Ed in Fountain Hills ,

Generally good, but…

Listen regularly as discussions are good, but annoying aspects are:
1. Often excessively talk over guests
2. Have er ah have , like some time in the past, hard sort of time , and er ah formulating a point. Sheesh, spit it out!
3. In the 6/9/24 podcast danced around the caller question regarding assets-under-management fees essentially asking is it worth the $30,000+ a year they would charge to manage a portfolio vs flat fee which is challenging the AUM model in the industry.

Fair Oaks saver ,

Look forward to each episode

Time is tight with all the podcasts out there. This one is interesting, informational, fun.
