Unique because of politics segment

This is a good podcast. Farr brings in some decent guests and it is the only financial podcast I have come across with a dedicated segment on current politics. The intro music and MC are so cheesy though. Farr kept saying that two stocks, Microsoft and ‘Google’ (=Alphabet), make up 20% of the S&P 500 index. I went back and re-listened to the 8/25/23 episode to confirm this. His statement is completely incorrect. There weren’t any two stocks that made up 20%. As of 8/1/23 the two largest stocks by market cap index weight were Apple (7.5%) and Microsoft (6.5%). Alphabet was only 2%. I remember him saying something similar another time previously.

The best financial podcast that I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. It’s so informative that I routinely listen to it multiple times.
