Frustrating

Danielle did you write invested or did Phil? Super frustrating when you are arguing with Phil about maintenance cap exp for an entire episode when you convinced me that you knew what it was in your book. This is one of many examples as y’all are reviewing the checklist

What phenomenal hosts

I’ve recently started listening from the beginning, and what a perfect duo. These are two brilliantly intelligent and knowledgeable people from two different areas of expertise and facets of life coming together over the beautiful concept of a father teaching his daughter about his passion for investing, which invites both incites from a world renowned investor and the simple questions of a curious beginner who knows little about investing making this perfect for both types of listeners and all of those in between.

I have high regards and greatly admire the both of them. They’re happy, successful, goofy, and provide excellent banter. Extremely enjoyable.

Bankrupted ,

Great show, but it’s okay to level up the discussion.

I have been listening for a few months now and this show has fundamentally altered the way I view the market and investing. It has honestly changed my world view.

With that said, I am now on episode 101, and it is becoming apparent that Danielle is taking great pains to keep discourse artificially basic. For example, during the discussion in episode 101 she uses the term “float” offhandedly while referring to Berkshire Hathaway’s cash position, Phil begins to use the term in response to her usage, she then rolls it back and says, wait, stop! I don’t even know what float is! Please explain it to me... I fully understand that the goal of the podcast it to keep the discourse at a base level, but for those of us that have now been with you for 100+ hours, please accept that we have done some homework, and would love it if the podcast’s discourse grew along with our growing understanding. Maybe that is just me, and others have no issue here.
