I do that too, because I can read it a lot faster than listening to it, even if I reread sections I didn't quite get the first time around. Back at megacorp we had some VPs and even the CEO who used to record speeches to the troops rather than send emails, and I hated it. I wondered if a lot of it was their vanity, that they wanted/needed to be seen and heard rather than just read.

And cuz I'm a Luddite, sometimes.

I had no trouble with link using Safari.

Very professional discussion by Vanguard employees.

It was nice to hear them discuss called-in concern questions on retirement asset distribution, Social Security, Asset Allocation, and 4% rule. By nice I mean they share my thoughts about these topics, so my thinking is re-enforced.

Video lasts about one hour.

Link worked fine for me (Safari, OS X).

Very nice summary on a lot of important topics and nice to see it's pretty consistent with the advice here as well. Thanks for posting. (I usually sign up for those webcasts and never get around to watching them...)

The webcasts are always on Thursdays at 1pm and much of the year I have a conflict on Thursdays. This is the first time I have watched the recorded version rather than live.
