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!
Guys! The typing noise in the background is terribly distracting. Do the podcast or finish your book report. Don’t try an do both at the same time please. Sheesh and thank you!
I miss Bill Barker
I've been listening to Marketfoolery for quite a few years now, and I've enjoyed the show quite a bit. It's nice and short and catches up on the news each day. However, what has always been a 4 star show I'm decreasing to 3 because there has been one guest who hasn't been on the show in 2 months. I miss Bill Barker. I don't know if the show would be what it is today if it hadn't been for Barker. We have the apropos of nothing episodes because of Bill. The phrase "Dozens of listeners" debuted on a Bill Barker show. The witty banter between Barker andHill was always a delight and some of the best moments of this show were some of the tangents they went on.
That has been missing for the last 2 months. I think the quality of the show has deminished a little bit as well because of that.
