A Random Talk w/ Burton Malkiel

A recent podcast in which the professor explains, among other things, his favorite popcorn recipe. - Sound Investing

I always expected him to sound more professorial & detached. In fact he sounds like a friendly, regular guy.

And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know.

I listened to the pod cast.
I also read the random walk book several years ago.
It was nice to get a short refresher course and see that he still believes and invest basically the same now as before.

Thanks, Onward. Have "Random Walk" on my bookshelf but haven't read it since MBA class many moons ago. He really does sound like a regular guy. Think I'll buy the new book for our college kids for Christmas.
