Excellent

I just started listening from the beginning and I really like how simply he explains everything. Really helpful for someone who is just beginning their journey into investing. His podcasts seem to be following a logical order based on what should be helpful to the beginning investor, stage by stage. I'm hooked!

Awesome

Just started listening from the first episode and the amount of insightful information about the economy and investing is incredible. As a self taught investor, every episode so far has at least 3 nuggets of information that has me saying “now I understand what that means”. Highly recommend. And I preordered his book!

Nice Blend of Life and Learning

David does a superb job of presenting investing concepts in a way that both beginners and experienced investors can benefit from. David's personal & conversational style allows him to relate in a way that makes his point stick. Also, no interviews here which is refreshing.
One thing that puzzles me is David's insistence that that U.S. economy is a closed system (either the government goes in debt so businesses and individuals can save or vice versa). Philosophically I find it hard to believe the economy is a zero sum game. Population growth and increased efficiencies alone should provide some degree of net economic growth. Another puzzler is the satisfaction expressed on the July 31, 2019 episode at the sale of his home in Idaho Falls explaining that his footprint had been reduced. However, won't the new owners continue to use the sold home in a similar manner meaning there is a net zero impact? Feels like a bit of circular reasoning
