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.

I hope these Financial Samurai podcasts make your commute or your exercise routine a little less painful.

Happy listening!
