Essential Listening: Intrinsic Values

Posted In: Weekend Reads

Last week I noted the return of Bill Simmons, currently of HBO, to the podcasting scene. Now we can put some numbers behind the story. It has been reported that Simmons’s podcast has been downloaded four million times in the past month and is now among the top 20 most-popular podcasts in the world. Not too shabby for a relaunched podcast.

One of the purposes of the Essential Listening series is to help in discovery. Among the challenges facing professionals, including those of us in the investing field, is finding new and interesting content. A recent post by Kevin Kelly and Mark Frauenfelder lists the top 50 factual podcasts. There are some stalwarts on the list, WTF with Marc Maron among them, but other less-heralded podcasts like Dan Carlin‘s Hardcore History are included as well. It is definitely worth checking out.

Now onto some podcasts I think are worth listening to this week (or any other):

To help the discovery process along, please feel free to leave a comment with some undiscovered podcasts that others might enjoy. I might even highlight your suggestion in this next edition of this podcast roundup.
