OG lost a computer last week, forcing him to take a week off from the podcast (thanks to Doug for filling in!). That means that it’s a good week to talk about risk management… What can go wrong? What should you do about it? Joe & OG tackle some lessons gleaned from Hollywood stars who’ve lost fortunes, PK discusses credit, Lance from Money, Life & More and Greg from Club Thrifty join Joe to discuss covering your bases with insurance, and finally, we give you our Top 5 Ways to Protect Your Portfolio.

As usual, show notes will fill in throughout the day Monday
