Canadian Couch Potato

Dan Bortolotti

Canadian Couch Potato is a podcast designed to help you become a better investor with index funds and ETFs. It is hosted by veteran journalist, blogger, and portfolio manager Dan Bortolotti. Dan offers straight-up, practical advice for Canadians who want to learn more about index investing, whether they manage their own portfolios or work with an advisor. Episodes typically feature an interview with an expert on a specific investing or financial planning topic. In a segment called “Bad Investment Advice,” Dan pokes fun at unhelpful articles in the financial media, and for "Ask the Spud" he's joined by his colleague Amanda Dalziel to answer investing questions from listeners and blog readers.

  • Garbage

    Don’t waste your time. Biased advice and terrible intro music. Index investing might have worked 5-10 years ago but you’re now too late to the game.

  • Changing my life

    This is a really phenomenal podcast. It's teaching me so much about investing. I love the 'bad investment advice' and 'ask the spud' segments because it's answered questions I have and didn't know to ask! Thanks Dan! You're giving me the confidence as I learn both from your podcasts and website to put together a solid plan with all avenues thought out and explored so I can leave my active manager without worrying about what I'm getting myself into. Please keep this up.
