Hi all,

What investing/financial/tax advice podcasts do you listen to? I seem to have more time to listen then I have time to read.

Thanks!

In my opinion, the best financial podcasts are right here on the Bogleheads Forum:

I listen to a lot of podcasts: I’ve probably averaged about 100 episodes per month for the last few years. In general, I’m least interested in unscripted, lightly edited conversation, either among the hosts or between a host and a guest.

One of the few exceptions is Animal Spirits, a podcast by two employees of Ritholtz Wealth Management, Micheal Batnick and Ben Carlson. The hosts have good chemistry, and they’re efficient with the amount of time they spend on each topic and about editing out tangents. They remind me of my younger self, if that younger self were a more sophisticated investor than even my current self. Personally, I skip over the portion at the end of the show in which they recommend books, movies, and television shows.

Another exception is the already mentioned Bogleheads on Investing, hosted by Rick Ferri. The guests have been outstanding, and they’re clearly comfortable with Ferri. I wish the audio were better, and the shows were a bit shorter and the conversations more actively edited. I’m pretty sure I’d like this show twice as much if each episode were half as long.

My favorite podcast in this category is a behavioral economics podcast by Charles Schwab, Choiceology with Katy Milkman. The first season, hosted by Dan Heath, was very good, and the second season, with Milkman as host, is even better. Once you get the basics of Boglehead-style investing, the real challenge is behavioral: staying the course. The interesting, well edited stories in Choiceology help with that challenge.
