Money Talk With
Ed and Chuck Podcasts

Listen to our takes on a wide range of money
topics from finance, business valuations and investing,
to wills, taxes and trusts.

Episode 54

Ed's 46 year old stock pick might just take off. Don't buy a new Tesla. "Don't look at me, the market is just down". Who says that and when? Apple and Home Depot do well sometimes. A recession is just around the corner. "Listen to Jim Cramer when picking stocks" No one has ever said that. Ed has started to paint.

Episode 53

Ed and Chuck don't understand quadratic or differential equations. The IRS isn't always right. Who cares if there is no income tax in Alaska? No one should. Just read the book. Ed's dog Jack would like some money. How charitable do you want to be? Families fighting over the honey pot.

Episode 52

Everyone wants to make more money than their neighbor or more money than their sister's husband. It's difficult to grow your IRA. The losers aren't around. The longer you stay in, the greater your chances of winning. Invisible inflation. You don't win or lose until you sell. ETF's. Ed and Chuck still don't like investment advisors. The US is not populated with that many people with that much money.

Episode 51

Today’s topic is the power of knowing when to walk away. There’s the quantitative side — how much money in dollars — and then there’s the qualitative side, which gets to the question of abandoning the child, the new business, or an idea. Can you handle quitting and the loss of your identity?

Episode 50

Today’s guest is Joseph B. Anderson Jr. We'll be discussing Joe's journey from zero to fairly substantial wealth over a long period of time. But more specifically, we'll discuss Joe's beginning in Topeka, Kansas, and his journey to West Point, Vietnam, the White House fellowship, General Motors, and Tag Holdings, LLC.

Episode 49

Today’s topic is conflicts. When we hear the word conflict we often think about lawyers — what’s your hourly rate and should it be more? Chuck’s dad has a saying — “there’s $1,000,000 in your back.” As long as you’re capable of working, then you’ve got the ability to make the money that you just spent.

Episode 48

Today’s guest is Kerry Grady, an American entrepreneur, designer, educator, author, and humanitarian. He is best known as the Founding Principal of Grady Campbell, a leading strategic brand agency established in 1989 that plans, designs and produces customized, multi-dimensional solutions for a wide range of clientele. Join us for a lively conversation about growing up in Iowa, a gallery in the outhouse, and learning design from the Bauhaus.

Episode 46

Schwab gives Twitter an F-rating. Don't even bother selling your shares, just burn the shares that you own. Create some heat in the fireplace. Picking stocks depends on the narratives behind them, to some. What are the consistent stocks? Copy the top ten winners — a team of professional investors who are far more experienced in handling a great deal more money.

Episode 47

Some people are just better off not paying attention. Our guest bought two Iowa farms ... and never saw either one of them. It's like saying you never saw your child. Don't fall in love with the farm. Don't fall in love with Apple. Nobody's saying that you must own stocks, but if you do, you've got to make your own decisions.

Episode 45

With this episode, we’ll explore how the periodic Biden plans, Pocahontas, the centered-out east, and Biden's tax plan impact the giving and gaining of wealth. The wealthiest people in the world borrow to live tax-free. Are you rewarding intellectual sophistication, or are you rewarding someone who sits on his duff and does nothing?

Episode 44

Your checking account really is the cash-in and cash-out statement. This will be fun, I can assure you — like a barrel of monkeys kind of fun. There are all kinds of solutions for charitable estate planning. The secret is the accumulation of wealth is the game. The disposition of wealth is the disaster.

Episode 43

Today's episode is about The Future of the Professions, a book authored by a father and son team, the Susskinds, back in 2015. It was prescient, in other words, what was projected has come to pass. The book addresses a multitude of professions: health, education, divinity, law, journalism, management, consulting, tax, accounting, and architecture. So, what is the impact of technology on the future of the professions?
