Today I've got a quick episode discussing a couple interesting investing and retirement-related articles I found on CNN.com and the Washington Post.

I don't really have a poignant takeaway; just always do your research, dig a little deeper, and find out what kind of motives the writer might have.

Hey all -- today we're veering off the retirement planning path yet again, but it's important, because, in the name of saving the planet, legislators and activists are logjamming LNG pipelines, thereby cutting off supply, thereby causing the use of coal.

What's worse for the climate? Natural gas or coal?

Anyway, this is a little editorial in the Wall Street Journal I found this weekend and I thought you'd find it inte...

Hopefully this will be the last episode where I whine about inflation. But I think there are a couple points you need to keep in mind as you do your retirement planning. Your money might be losing value faster than you think and that's what today is all about.

Oh, and idiocy delivered to your screen via Twitter from intellectual-giant-Karen Elizabeth Warren.

Today's a quick episode just to answer an email from a listener. Will asks, should he move to Portland to be closer to family?

My response: Well, if you want a quick, insider's look at the state of the city of Portland in 2022, LISTEN UP. Hint: It ain't pretty.

Here's a link to the Willamette Week article describing how in Portland, EVEN OUR LIBRARIANS AREN'T SAVE ANYMORE!!

Today I've got a little rant about some stupid Dave Ramsey advice I heard.

Also, I mention two books by Saifedean Ammous that you really should read:

Yes, I realize this is a retirement planning podcast. But...

Let's face it:

You're being watched.

You're being tracked.

You're being followed.

You have FAR LESS privacy than you might think.

Buying Bitcoin is not anonymous. But can it be?

I think it can. I may be wrong, but I think it can. It's not easy, but it can be done. In this episode I'll talk about how.

NOTHING IN THIS PODCAST IS FINANCIAL ADVICE.

Today's episode isn't really about retirement planning, per se. It's more about what a currency crisis, coupled with mega-inflation and recession might look like, right here at home in the good ol' US of A. It's not pretty, but it's worth at least thinking about. Join me won't you? Let's sally forth, into THE DAAAARKNESS...

Okay my friends, in today's podcast I'm probably gonna come off like a complete a-hole, but I can't help myself. I recently heard a podcast, hosted by a financial advisor, that had some really bad (in my opinion) information in it. Like, REALLY bad.

But to prove that I'm not a total jerk, I wanted to promote three REALLY GOOD retirement planning podcasts that are hosted by financial advisors that I really like and tr...

So you've heard about the Canadian Government invoking the Emergencies Act... You've heard about them freezing bank accounts and even freezing crypto wallets. Is that really possible? Yes.

Could your government freeze or seize your retirement savings? Most definitely. So DON'T HAVE WRONG THOUGHTS, DON'T SAY WRONG THINGS, AND DON'T ENGAGE IN TRACEABLE FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS WITH WRONG PEOPLE. Got it? Good.

People say owning gold is a hedge against inflation and should be part of your retirement plan. But should it really be a part of your investment portfolio? And does it really act as a hedge against inflation?

Well, I'll let you decide that, but I will show you how to buy gold for pretty much the lowest possible cost.

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
