The Financial Samurai Podcast

Welcome to The Financial Samurai Podcast!

In 2H2017, I decided to start publishing audio versions of my posts for those of you who would rather listen than read. The audio versions contain little bits of nuances that you won’t find in the articles. They are also a way for me to build a library of thoughts for my children just in case I pass away before they become adults.

I hope these Financial Samurai podcasts make your commute or your exercise routine a little less painful.

Happy listening!

If the pandemic taught us anything, it's that life is not guaranteed. If you have debt and/or dependents, get life insurance. You can receive custom competitive quotes through PolicyGenius. Once my wife locked down affordable 20-year term policies through PolicyGenius, we felt tremendous mental relief.

Support My Work

To build more wealth, pick up a copy of Buy This, Not That, my instant Wall Street Journal bestseller. The book helps you make more optimal investment decisions so you can live a better, more fulfilling life. 

To learn how to negotiate a severance and be free, pick up a copy of How To Engineer Your Layoff. Use the code "saveten" to save $10. Negotiating a severance was my #1 catalyst to retire early. 

Episode Synopsis

Now that the Public Health Emergency for COVID-19 has been lifted, I wanted to review the entire pandemic period. I'll talk about some wins and some regrets. Essentially, the pandemic was an experience in hedging our lives against regret. What are you proud of doing and not doing since 2020?
