Andrew Horowitz is the author of The Disciplined Investor and creator of the podcast that accompanies the book. He has also created the annual “BESPy” awards, to celebrate blogs, education, sofware/sites, and podcasts focusing on personal finance and investing.
Andrew’s latest podcast announces the winners of the first BESPy awards. Consumerism Commentary was presented with the award for “Best Personal Finance, Savings and Budgeting Blog” among a number of excellent nominees, including The Simple Dollar, Free Money Finance, and My Money Blog.
I’m not quite sure how the winner was chosen, and the canned audience is kind of cheesy (but fun). However, I’m always happy to be a part of anything that brings attention to personal finance and the blogosphere. My “acceptance,” which is more of a rambling interview including an inordinate number of filled pauses vocalized by me, starts at time stamp 14:20.
Take a look at previous editions of the Disciplined Investor Podcast; Andrew regularly has excellent guests, such as an editor of Forbes Magazine and Jim Jubak from MSN Money.
