108: Equity Mates | Australia's Greatest Finance & Investing Podcasters
Show Notes



The following is a conversation with Alec Renehan and Bryce Leske, who together host Australia’s number one finance and investing podcast, Equity mates.

These two fellas and equity mates has been very influential to me. I have learned pretty everything I know about investing through them, but as well, they are the Equity Mates are influential to me because they are just a couple of regular guys who have absolutely knocked this podcasting game out of the park.

Alec and Ren were mates at uni, decided to give this podcasting thing a try in 2017, and then now 5 years later, they employ several people, operate multiple shows, have raised money, are just about the most valuable media to Australian retail investors, are about to host and disrupt the financial events space with their very own, Finfest, and ultimately, have managed to turn a passion project and hobby into a lifestyle and career. (A bit too much projection from myself here…)

This podcast with Bryce and Ren is hopefully not as you’ve heard them before…
