Congrats Chris and my favorite guests: Bill Barker, Jason Moser and Abby Malin! All the other guests are great as well! Chris there are two must listen daily podcasts in my world! Clark Howard’s and of course Market Foolery! Having said that do you not think after 2000 podcasts that you might have more than dozens of listener’s? Hopefully that is the case and we can extinguish that oft played line! Regardless this podcast will continue to be a staple in my life , CONGRATS!
Best financial podcast
But it's gotten a little monotonous as of late, especial having less variety of guests. Jason is too predictable and only had a small bucket of favorite sticks which he talks about over and over and over again. Think McCormick's. Think his ear on cash bucket....
Don’t expect impartial news
I’ve been listening to MF for a few years. If you have a stake in the stocks they talk about, it can be informative, but they keep it very narrow in terms of the diversity of stock discussions. For example, the recent IPO of Robinhood barely got a mention as a side note in an earlier episode. As an investor, I was curious about MF’s take on RH (RH has disrupted the investing market for a lot of young investors), but nothing has been reported or discussed. Most likely because they are funded/sponsored by other platforms.
