A couple of my favorite podcasts

Listening to Podcasts isn't a new thing, but it is new to me.  I love to listen to "Freakonomics Radio" (once a week) and "The Clark Howard Show" (daily).   Both are informative and entertaining and FREE.

"The Clark Howard Show" is an awesome personal finance show that I have been listening to on 850 AM radio in Raleigh every day between 1-3 PM.  But, I can't always listen at that time. So, now I just listen whenever I want via his podcast that I download to my smart phone.  

I loved the books, "Freakonomics" and "Super Freakonomics" by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner and was thrilled when I recently discovered "Freakonomics Radio".

More truth about Hedge Funds

It seems it is becoming more popular to bash hedge funds in the media - and rightly so.  Hedge funds are unregulated, expensive, black boxes that rarely deliver market-beating returns.  I just wish the people that control other people's money would listen.  Click here to read another great article by Ted Siedle of Forbes magazine.  Every pension fund manager in America should read Ted's article.
