Love this podcast!

I started listening to these two after they started doing regular podcasts with Paul Merriman, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Don and Tom are straight shooters who know what they’re talking about and give straightforward, honest, and helpful advice. I listen to their podcasts every day and I am also working my way through the older ones. I’ve learned a ton from them, they really help small/individual investors make smart decisions with their money. Highly recommended!

Not for the younger generation

I started listening to the podcast for a month or so and was enjoying it. Granted the calls were just rich older people asking what to do with 200k but thats besides the point. I was excited to hear their take on bitcoin but was disappointed. Not because they didnt like it (fine, im sure they have their reasons). But they dismiss it so hard with just interviews of others who do not like it. I was hoping to hear their clear worked out point of view but alas, this podcast seems designed for an older generation that is wealthier and all they say is "bitcoin bad" and dont really consider anything happening in any place other then America,
