Books Mentioned in This Episode
Welcome to Money For the Rest of Us. This is a personal finance show on money, how it works, how to invest it, and how to live without worrying about it. I’m your host, David Stein. Today is Episode 348. It is a listener Q&A episode. That’s something I’ve never done. In the seven years I’ve been doing the podcast I have a weekly plus episode for Plus members, which is mostly a Q&A episode, but I’ve never really opened up that format for all listeners.
This week’s podcast topic wasn’t coming together as well as I would like, so an hour before I was set to record, I sent out an email to the Insider’s Guide list asking for questions. I didn’t do that very well though, because I mistyped the reply email, so everybody that tried to reply got their email bounce back. But I still got dozens of questions from persistent listeners that were able to find an alternative email and get ahold of me.
Topics we’ll cover in today’s episode include the endowment model, teaching our kids about money, favorite investing books, cryptocurrency, valuations, investing in individual stocks, Donor-Advised funds, the housing bubble and potential crash, FDIC insurance, and some additional topics. I won’t be able to spend too much time on each topic, otherwise the show will be too long, but let’s kick it off.
As a Money For the Rest of Us Plus member, you are able to listen to the podcast in an ad-free format and have access to the written transcript for each week’s episode.
