Best Investing Podcast
I've listened to about every personal finance podcast out there, and this is the best one by far. These guys give no-nonsense advice with no real sales pitch. Between the podcast and the website, you can't go wrong with all of the info they give you, most of which espouses the idea of indexing which will save you $ in the long run.
Excellent personal finance podcast - highly recommended
LIke the previous reviewer, I've loaded up on all personal finance podcasts outthere, but this is the one podcast that I wait for. No non-sense index fund advice, if you are not die-hard stock trader, this is the podcast for you.
