Shortly after I was on the Mad Fientist’s podcast, Brad and Jonathan from the Choose FI podcast reached out to me. You see, they also have a podcast exploring aspects of financial independence, and after listening to me and Brandon chat for a bit, they still had questions. They wanted to dive into some of the topics that Brandon and I only scratched the surface of. I had not heard of this podcast before they contacted me, but any friend of the Mad Fientist is a friend of mine, so of course I immediately said yes.
Later that day I clicked over to their site and listened to a few episodes, and boy was I glad I did. They do a great job there, and if you are into podcasts and financial independence, it is a must listen. These guys are passionate about what they do, and it shows.
It took a little bit of logistical magic to make it work (mostly due to me scheduling on days that I already had plans (hey, you don’t expect me to cancel my pedicure do you?) This is not due to my super busy schedule, but due to the fact I have not mastered the very complicated art of looking at a calendar and getting the dates right.
They were very understanding of my complete scheduling incompetence, and for some reason didn’t cancel the whole thing out of frustration. Don’t worry guys, I have a few blog posts and Ted talks in my queue to hopefully help me with this in the future.
In all seriousness though, I think you will really enjoy this one. We dive deep into some good stuff, and even if you have listened to my other interviews there will be some new stuff in there, so put on some headphones and enjoy.
And if you are coming here from the chooseFI podcast, a warm welcome. If you subscribe to the blog you will be bombarded with e-mails at my blistering writing pace of barely once a week (on good months), and the very exclusive and special Happy Philosopher newsletter which I have written exactly zero times….someday it will happen.
Once you give it a listen head back over and let me know what you think. Also, if there are questions you have for me that I didn’t touch upon in the interview, ask away in the comments below.
