Our most popular podcast episodes of 2018
It’s been another busy year for the Informed Choice Radio podcast, with more than 80,000 downloads in 2018.
Reviewing our statistics for the year, here are our top ten most popular episodes.
Billionaire investor Jim Mellon joined me on the podcast in February to chat about his new book, Juvenescence.
The book, co-authored with Al Chalabi, provides a layman’s guide to longevity.
It investigates the new technologies and explains how to benefit from the life extending technologies both personally and professionally.
I chatted with Abraham in March, taking a deep dive into the science of retirement portfolios which last a lifetime.
Abraham has carried out a detailed study of the 4% rule; a popular retirement planning rule of thumb designed to help retirees understand a sustainable withdrawal rate from their portfolios in later life.
Financial planning should be all about making progress towards wellbeing.
In this episode from February, I spoke to Jason Butler, author of a new book called Money Moments: Simple steps to financial well-being.
Growing up, the words finance, savings, and portfolio made my guest’s eyes glaze over, and the thought of stocks and financial statements shut down her brain.
The daughter of a successful investor and bestselling financial author, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing – until she realized that her time-consuming career as lawyer was making her feel anything but in control of her life or her money.
My conversation with Danielle Town in April explored Warren Buffett style value investing.
Former investment manager Niels joined me on Informed Choice Radio in April to discuss some of the ideas from his new book, The End of Indexing.
In the book, Niels presents a different vision of the future for investors; one where index tracking strategies are poorly suited.
What are the financial behaviours which predict future wealth?
Building on the findings of The Millionaire Next Door, Dr Sarah Stanley Fallaw runs DataPoints which provides behavioral science tools to enable advisors to impact client financial success.
Back in January, I talked about how 40% of UK adults anticipate that 2018 will be a very difficult year for them financially.
In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, we tackled those money worries and gave you the tools you needed to stop worrying about your personal finances.
What if money was easy?
If you’ve ever wondered why some people make money easily, enjoy great holidays, have nice things and retire rich, while others always seem to struggle, it’s not because they are more intelligent or just lucky.
It’s simply because they have better beliefs about money and a system that works. And that’s the subject of the book Warren Shute has written.
Hayley is the first Chartered Financial Planner in the UK to also be a Certified Money Coach.
She joined me on the podcast in April to chat about how family attitudes and external influences can influence our behaviours around money and these can sometimes have an unhelpful effect on making important financial decisions.
Our tenth most downloaded episode of the year was broadcast right at the start of 2018, where I shared with you five ideas for spending less this year, as well as five ideas for earning more.
Thank you to all of our guests and listeners in 2018.
We look forward to bringing you even more great podcast interviews and episodes in 2019.
