Superinvestors and the Art of Worldly Wisdom — Jesse Felder

As founder of the Felder Report, he has amassed a large network of market experts who frequently guest feature on the show. While he only released six episodes in 2020, interviews with Rob Arnott, chairman of Research Affiliates, Christopher Cole, founder of Artemis Capital, and Bill Fleckenstein, founder of Fleckenstein Capital, were all on timely market topics that are still relevant today.

My Worst Investment Ever — Dr Andrew Stotz

Many investing lessons are the result of blunders. It’s these stories of loss that Dr Andrew Stotz, CEO and founder of A. Stotz Investment Research, looks to share on his aptly titled My Worst Investment Ever series.

In more than 300 episodes, an incredible range of investors impart their market wisdom. One guest, Joachim Klement, went so far as to author a book about his own blunders, called 7 Mistakes Every Investor Makes (and How to Avoid Them). Thanks to the publication of his book, Klement, an investment strategist at Liberum, was invited back on to the show, making him the only guest to feature twice.
