EP #129!!!

I've listened to ~2000 podcasts in the past 3 years including all 201 of Meb's. His is one of a small handful that I subscribe to.
Episode 129 is in my top 5 favorite podcasts of all time! (#201 is good too ... as well as YouTube episode 3).

Clear, Knowledgable Investment Thoughts

Meb’s podcast has sparked my addictive exploration into the investing space. His voice cadence is prefect at 1.5 X speed and the topics covered on the live interview, best writing pieces, and listener Q&A sessions are broad while financially relevant/actionable. Meb’s investing views have been clear for years, but he’s able to shift questions to glean new strategies and insights from each guest.
