Recommend for new investors!

I’m in my mid twenties and have been investing bit by bit for years but am now trying to educate myself and dive in more. This is one of the most helpful investing podcasts I’ve listened to- the host breaks down common market phrases and concepts in a way that is easy to digest and implement. I recommend!

I am a Charles Schwab customer and stumbled upon this podcast looking for something else. Great information that you don’t need a PhD to understand and great speaking voice from the host. I like the simplicity of the financial advice and the tips to secure your future can be followed immediately.
