Introducing The Preferred Shares Podcast – Episode 1: Vending Machine Mania

I am pleased to introduce you to the Preferred Shares Podcastwhich is a collaboration among Douglas Ott of investment firm Andvari Associates, Devin LaSarre, author of the Invariant newsletter on finance and investing, and myself.
