What is Stock Stories?
Stock Stories is a podcast and platform designed to help you, the individual investor, make better decisions. We look at case studies of real companies and mental models as our main learning tools.
Will You Do An Episode on XYZ Company?
Part of my goal with this platform is to review, research, and present my findings on the largest American companies, which are part of the S&P 500 index.
Occasionally I will cover smaller companies or companies based in other countries as well. There’s no guarantees, but if you make a suggestion I’ll try to work it into the show at some point.

Popularized in the investment community by Charlie Munger, they come from a wide range of disciplines, including psychology, biology, statistics, etc.
The Stock Stories podcast explores company case studies and mental models.
