Aside from reading I am a big, big fan of podcasts. Below you’ll find what I consider to be recommended listening if you’re seeking to develop your knowledge and gain fascinating insight into investing and markets. And best of all, they’re free!
Hosted by Andrew Kuhn and Geoff Gannon, this is a real stock-pickers podcast. As the title suggests, Andrew and Geoff are interested in discussing smaller companies with the potential to offer attractive rates of return over the long-term. Focused Compounding offers fantastic insight into the investing style and methodology of its hosts.
Superinvestors is hosted by author and former hedge fund manager Jesse Felder. As the title suggests, Felder interviews money managers to talk through their methods and thinking on investments and economic conditions. It has been excellent so far.

Seides follows a similar format to Patrick O’Shaughnessy, inviting guests on and letting them talk about their experiences in investment and business. Well worth a listen if you want to learn from money managers.
