Enjoyed Capt. Hudson interview.
I was a Coastie 62-66. Learned a lot about today's Guard. I would recommend this podcast to every young person. The sound investing advise at the end is priceless. I too would pick the Marine Corps second to USCG.
Move on - waste of time
This is just painful. I tried, I really did for handful of episodes. Between this and his twitter account he really grates on you to the point where he is completely unlikeable. He needs to move on from himself.
Engaging and Unique Podcast on Finance? Indeed!
Jared Dillian is the author of “Street Freak: Money and Madness at Lehman Brothers,” one of the most engaging books in the Finance genre, with a narrative style both electrifying and AUTHENTIC than you’ll find in that genre. So I had to subscribe to his Podcast to see what Mr. Dillian had on tap there. Turns out he has a refreshingly engaging and unique podcast that is both incredibly informative and won’t make your ears bleed (just listen to a few podcasts from industry analysts or, if you can bear it, most economists and you’ll see clearly what I’m saying). Anyone looking to improve their investing performance while actually enjoying the podcast - subscribe! Highly recommended...
