The Top 10 Episodes of 2018


Thanks to you, this little pet project interviewing great leaders in the investment industry will cross one million downloads before the end of the year.

As we take a pause and reflect on the year that was and the year to come, I’d like to share the top 10 most downloaded episodes of Capital Allocators this year and the top 5 most downloaded episodes with allocators (which fell just below the top 10 overall).  If you haven’t had a chance to listen, every one is well worth an hour or so over the holidays (or 40 minutes at 1.5x speed).

If you have any ideas and can make introductions to guests who might crack next year’s top 10, please send them my way.

Additionally, we’re planning to experiment with monetization next year through sponsored episodes and advertising.  If you have an interest in either, please reach out and I’ll tell you more.

Have a wonderful holiday and new year!
