    294: Matthew 'Whiz' Buckley on Flying in Top Gun, Trading Options & Taking Psychedelics

    Matthew 'Whiz' Buckley of Top Gun Options & No Fallen Heroes Foundation speaks with Sam about his many interesting lives! Buckley served in the U.S. Navy's elite "Top Gun" flight program (including on 9/11), then left the military to work in the financial markets. He really found his niche in options and made enough in the 2020 downturn to be independently wealthy. Around the same time as finding financial success, Matthew also discovered the healing power of psychedelics and their potential to help struggling first responders - this gave way to his No Fallen Heroes Foundation. Enjoy this interesting conversation on flying, drugs and trading options! Afterwards, Sam & Derek opine on why they haven't dug into options trading until just now thanks to a nudge from Buckley.

    292: Using A.I. To Manage Traffic with Parquery CEO Andrea Fossati

    There's a lot of buzz around A.I. and what the future holds... but what about its potential to change today's problems? All of us deal with traffic in our cars and there are A.I. systems already in place around the World helping to solve this issue. One such company is Switzerland based Parquery. Johnny speaks with CEO & Co-Founder Andrea Fossati to find out how they're able to help better control the flow of traffic both at intersections and in parking management. Then Johnny and Derek reflect on the good and bad traffic systems they've encountered around the world and how they'd execute Parquery's technology to optimize profitability.
    About Andrea Fossati:
    Andrea Fossati co-founded Parquery in 2014 as a spin-off from ETHZ (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Zurich) and is currently its CEO. Parquery launched the first video-based Smart Parking Project in 2015 and is currently running 100+ Smart Parking and Mobility projects worldwide. Andrea Fossati received a Master of Science in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in 2005 and a Master of Science from the University of Illinois in Chicago in 2006. He completed his PhD at the Computer Vision Laboratory (CVLab) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL).

    291: Stem Cell Therapy and Alternative Healthcare

    291: Stem Cell Therapy and Alternative Healthcare

    This episode may not be a financial investment for your wealth, but one for your health - which is arguably even more important! After Sam tried stem cell therapy for the first time on his knee, we decided to have an expert on the show to talk about this exciting alternative to traditional healthcare. Ryan Alling is the Co-Founder of Luxury Stem Cells, which specializes in catering to American patients and provided various stem cell treatments at their clinic just over the border in Tijuana, Mexico. Ryan and Sam talk about the many benefits of stem cells and struggles to bring them to the mainstream in the United States. Then, Johnny jumps in with Sam to talk about their personal experiences with stem cells and whether they'd want to try them in the future.

    290: Generate Higher Passive Returns Selling Shareholder Voting Rights

    290: Generate Higher Passive Returns Selling Shareholder Voting Rights

    We dig into a new platform called Shareholder Vote Exchange (SVE) to unlock value in proxies you are issued for each individual stock you own. As far as we know, SVE is the first of its kind to take on this concept at scale, and this could be an easy passive way to earn extra returns on assets you already own! Derek interviews SVE Founder & CEO Preston Yadegar to find out how it all works and how the company can convert your unused votes into additional revenue. Then Sam and Derek convene on the concept and potential of this, plus throw in a little talk about wine as well (of course!).

Gev’s Aunt ,

Fun and interesting

I have been investing for over 30 years. This would have been a great show to start learning from. Fun and interesting.

Muhammad Khallaf ,

Great, fun and a wealth of Knowledge!!!

A wealth of knowledge is shared in a very genuine and honest way. The content gives you a broad view on many diversified ways of investing you might not be aware of, an eyeopener to say the least, but also they do it in a very fun and engaging way.

I love the recommendations part of it as well, really appreciate the effort put behind it!

And after 3 million downloads, obviously it goes without saying, very highly recommended!

Ed Matt ,

Definitely Worthwhile

I am an experienced investor who has been listening to the podcasts regularly for over three years. The guys cover a wide variety of topics from real estate to crypto to wine and farm land. So, they have definitely broadened my horizons and educated me. I appreciate hearing about their real life experiences. Understand that many of the guests are selling their funds/investments (like most podcasts), and that the host may not be an expert in that category (they don’t claim to be). So, if something sounds interesting to you, I suggest you do additional research before investing. Example: farmland - this sounded like a solid investment based on the ILAB interview. But then I heard another podcast in which the host debunked many of the selective data points I heard on ILAB with hard facts. Not a knock on ILAB, just a caution that applies to most investing podcasts that have guests. Overall, I like the approach the guys take, and it really seems like they are genuine about trying to educate their listeners. I will be becoming a Patron member in support of Sam, Johnny, and Derek.
