Best Produced Finance Podcast Around!

I love this podcast! Oscar the host makes these conversations so interesting and relatable. I also think the way music is used in the podcast really serves it well. Refreshing to hear so much useful information relayed in such a digestible way in less than 20 mins. 5 stars!
