Dan's blog has been a sense making beacon for Canadian for years. And now we get to hear him bring it to our ears! I'll be waiting for new episodes!

Great podcast. As an immigrant I'm really interested to know more about the investment opportunites in Canada.

Great work Dan. great music too! look forward to learning more from you and your guests.
