Rational and Varied look at the hobby

Really enjoy this podcast, as it doesnt focus on "investing" but rather factors that influence the hobby. Kyle's insights have helped me avoid "fads" in the market and it is refreshing to have someone talk about the hobby as a passion rather than a monied endeavor.
