The Financial Samurai Podcast

Welcome to The Financial Samurai Podcast. I'm currently in the process of making some technical changes to improve both the user experience for the podcast and eliminate publication delays for the blog's RSS feed.

If you are a RSS subscriber to the blog articles and have been recently redirected here to the podcast page, please update your RSS reader or browser (ex. Outlook, Google Chrome, Mozilla) to point to this new RSS feed URL going forward: https://www.financialsamurai.com/feed/

My favorite RSS reader is Feedly (search for Financial Samurai) and I hear BlogLovin is pretty good as well.

If you are a podcast subscriber, good news! Many historical podcast episodes that you may have missed will soon become available in the coming weeks.

Thanks,

Sam
