Best Financial/Business Podcast

By markmccann1970 - Feb 19 2020
Read more
So, I don't generally go for business and/or financial podcasts, but I have been listening to Slate Money since its inception as it automatically appeared in my Slate Plus Feed. I've always enjoyed the interplay between the hosts, and while I do miss Jordan and Kathy (the original co-hosts), I do like the current lineup as well. Emily is adorable and even Anna, as the resident contrarian, provides some needed balance and the frisson of tension. Felix, of course, is awesome, and I'm indebted unto the show for introducing me to Succession which I started watching so I would get all of the references and now love it as much as they do.

Trump

By Monaco3344! - Feb 16 2020

Every episode they blame Trump for things that have nothing to do with him. It’s very lowbrow and a lot of people don’t like Trump, but it’s getting annoying to hear his name 100 times in an hour podcast when it has little to nothing to do with him. Don’t like Trump and I don’t like Felix either.
