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!

Insightful and Practical

Since it’s inception, I don’t think I have missed an episode. On almost every aspect of financial planning, between Choiceology and Mark Riepe’s Financial Decoder, I learn so much!
