The Financial Samurai Podcast

Welcome to The Financial Samurai Podcast!

In 2H2017, I decided to start publishing audio versions of my posts for those of you who would rather listen than read. The audio versions contain little bits of nuances that you won’t find in the articles.

For the longest time, I've wondered the following about some men:

  • Why claim to be retired while having a working spouse?
  • Why work so many hours after having a newborn?
  • Why leave your family when your children are still young and need fathers the most?

Doing these things didn't make much sense to me until I had...
