Canadian Couch Potato

The Canadian Couch Potato Podcast is a spin-off series from the Canadian Couch Potato blog, hosted by veteran journalist, author and investment advisor Dan Bortolotti. For the last eight years, Dan Bortolotti has written about index investing on his blog (CanadianCouchPotato.com) where he offers straight-up, practical advice for Canadians who want to learn more about investing using index mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Each episode of will feature an interview with a guest expert who will chat about a specific investing topic, takeaway messages from the discussion, a segment called “Bad Investment Advice,” where Dan pokes fun at a specific bit of unhelpful commentary in the financial media, and an Ask the Spud segment where, with the help of Dan’s PWL colleague Amanda Dalziel, he answers investing questions from listeners and blog readers.
