Jack and Sam visit The Compound

Downloads for this episode as an audio podcast are among the fastest we’ve ever seen, with over 30,000 listens in the first two days and counting. This will exceed 45,000 by the end of the week. A YouTube video is on its way to doing a similar number. Combine the two and you’re talking about one of the largest audiences in funding for a podcast episode. We do this every week. The platform we’re building to showcase the best and brightest voices in investing is unparalleled. You’re a part of it, and you’ve been helping us create this thing out of the blue for the past few years.

Here is the video version in case you haven’t got it.

Sam brought loads of data and graphs into the conversation and Jack made us think and laugh. We reached #10 on the Apple Podcasts investment charts. Before us was an episode of The Motley Fool and a bunch of Dave Ramsey “episodes” that are really just clips from the same show (yes, he cheats to stay on top of the charts). It won’t be long before this will be the number one investment podcast in America. If you’ve been paying attention, you already know I won’t stop until we get there. The thumbnail above is a joke (well done Duncan), we’re not going to fool the algorithm for audience building. We will continue to do what we have always done: inform, educate, entertain.

In light of the recent hack we’re going through, I wanted to say thanks for watching and listening.

It was no exaggeration to translate our brand of financial content from the written word on our blogs and in our books to audio and video. We had to work on that and figure it out. We had to make changes and corrections along the way. But what hasn’t changed is the message: Less is more Stocks work over time Bonds too Risks are rewarded Not all risk is equal No one can predict the future Diversification works over time but not all the time Human behavior overrides everything else History repeats Cycles are relentless Fear and greed always never go out of style Costs and taxes matter Willingness to tolerate volatility is worse than personal scenarios of avoidance pass, etc.

These are the things we know to be true. They’re the things we’ve been saying, charting, demonstrating, and proving for over ten years now. Talking about them for a new generation – in a new medium – was the job and the job gets done every single day. You guys are all part of it. The more people we can bring to our side, the more people will win in investment and life.
