I’m continuing to time shift my consumption of audio: instead of listening to the radio in the car/work, I download a week’s worth of investing/finance/business podcasts on Sunday for my listening and learning. I load up iTunes, sync with my iPod, and have a listening library of great financial content for the whole week.
Here are a few of the best investing podcasts that I find I continue to download and listen to:
The Trend Following Manifesto with Michael Covel (Michael Covel): The author of Trend Following is on a tear with great content, great interviews of some of investing’s greatest minds/investors.
