2 Intermediate Personal Finance Podcasts
The next set of podcasts are for people who have set up their retirement accounts, have figured out how to pay-off student loans and consumer debt – and are ready to jump into the stock market.
For this section, we did our best to choose podcasts that offer information – but steer clear of investing advice. Be sure to remember that these podcasts have lengthy disclaimer statements, and you should not immediately go out and act on the advice shared!
Hosted by father-daughter team, Phil and Danielle Town, this podcast shares info on how to research companies and shares insights from leading investors like Warren Buffet. The podcast takes a “teacher/student” approach, with Phil as the knowledgeable investor and Danielle asking insightful questions as a new investor.
The Money Guy Show
Sharing their show out of Georgia are “The Money Guys,” Brian Preston and Bo Hansen, who are financial advisors. This show does a great job of showing how one “levels up” with investing and money management over time by sharing how they prioritize spending their “army of dollar bills.”
