Finally a deep dive show that dares to be different

There is a wall of noise in the podcast-o-sphere and the Hardcore Finance Pod is a diamond in the rough. It goes deep, explores topics beyond the typical talking points, and dares to be intellectual. My favorite new pod.

Deep dive into finance but easily understandable

The guys focus on the hot finance topics of the day but have a great way of breaking it down so anyone with a basic understanding of finance can fully understand.

Alex and Shimon often have friendly disagreements to give both sides of a topic so you can make your own decision with the information they give you.

I love it and it’s on my regular podcast rotation

It is great to have this forum that covers various topics simply to raise awareness and engage in some much needed objective debate. It feels like an open dialog without an agenda. Thanks guys!
