Bitcoin 2021


Jim Surowiecki calls it a failed currency. Aaron Bush calls it the ultimate Rule Breaker. Who is right? Could it be both? Let's talk to these two crypto-luminaries and find out!
Some things can and should be forgotten over time. But the best things, the best songs, the best stories... they grow stronger in the retelling. That selfie with Jeff Bezos. Jerry Garcia shaking hands with Seth Godin. Business lessons from... Xena, Warrior Princess? Wait, what? I guess you'll have to just listen.
There are many faces who could appear on the Mt. Rushmore of Foolish Board Game Designers, but one place is most certainly reserved for Reiner Knizia. Not only for his brilliant games, but also his business acumen, his enthusiasm for life, and his dedication to his purpose of entertaining the people. Select any color but blue; it's your turn!
Whether you're a conscious leader in your community or some lucky kid's rich uncle, this month's mailbag demonstrates how you can bring someone along on your investing journey. Plus, improvements to the Market Cap Game Show, thoughts on when to sell, and more!
Surely it's not possible to beat the market with a random roll of the dice! But...what if we're dicing in a universe of great companies? What if we're randomizing Rule Breakers? Let's find out! And while we're at it, let's review a couple 5-Stock Samplers from the past few years.
By now you should know what Rule Breaker companies look like. And you should know what it means to be a Rule Breaker investor. But now it's time to look at what a Rule Breaker portfolio looks like, how is it built, and how is it stewarded.
If you want to let your winners win, you also have to let your losers lose. Sit back and enjoy the schadenfreude as we look at David's worst stock picks of the last three years.
The end is nigh! The end of 2020, that is. And with the new year comes new opportunities for growth and optimism. Your questions reflect that optimism in this, the final mailbag of a year unlike any other.
Returning champions Emily Flippen and Maria Gallagher are here to compete in your favorite game show. But have they hacked David's brain in the process? This is what happens when the contestants are so friendly that they help each other prepare!
The Besties of 2020

The Besties of 2020


Can you believe all that has happened in 2020? On this podcast, we've had authors, entrepreneurs, advisors, and leaders. It's time to revisit, not just the stories but many of the guests as well. It's a Rule Breaking year in review!
Gratitude: 2020

Gratitude: 2020


It would be easy, and indeed justified, to complain about 2020. It has been a difficult year in so many ways. But taking a contrary view, it is perhaps more important than ever to take some time to express gratitude. And yes, there’s a lot to be grateful for!
It's December, Fools, so naturally it's time for David's annual game recommendations! The only question is whether to put them on your gift-list or on your wishlist. The answer, of course, is both!

What an insulting podcast. Everybody needs to relax, you're not a vile but unaware racist. Stick with wise investing advice please.

thanks for reading the 'raised to be poor' , it really struck a chord with me. I was raised in a similar way and have very similar values regarding generosity. however with the picks from stock adviser I'm experiencing my first 1 baggers. very thrilling for me. happy birthday David.
