Educational opportunities for finance and investment are not rare. There are collections of books, literature, and blogs designed to offer the public a bit of understanding when it comes to investment.

However, there simply isn’t enough time in the world to search through the many items available in your local library or the internet. Fortunately, we’re saved from that time commitment, thanks to podcasts. With podcasts, we’re able to listen to incredible acumen while we run our errands, commute to work, work out, or relax on a sunny beach.
