Best information I’ve found in one place

As a new investor I’ve been seeking as much information and knowledge base as I can find to minimize my learning curve. I was fortunate enough to stumble onto this podcast and WOW, what a wealth of information provided in a concise “clean” way, pun intended. Thank you Ken for being so open and honest about your personal experiences. They are invaluable.
