Equity Mates Investing Podcast

Our 72 hours with Warren Buffett

Season 7, Ep. 48

Live (well, as live as podcasts can be) from Omaha, Nebraska, this is our first takes of Warren Buffett and Charlie Mungers 2023 Berkshire Hathaway annual general meeting.


Warren (92 years old) and Charlie (99) held court in from of 45,000 people and answered questions for almost seven hours.


This episode is our recap of our favourite moments from the weekend. Our biggest takeaway? While King Charles may have been coronated in London over the weekend, the real King Charlie was in Omaha.

  • 95. Expert: Brent Beshore - Only 14 investments in 16 years | Permanent Equity

    51:15
    We’ve interviewed hundreds of investors on this podcast, many of whom claim they’re long term investors but they’re probably looking at a 5-7 year holding period, not 30 years or more. Brent Beshore puts them all to shame. We loved this conversation where he went over the 14 companies he's invested in - with everything from amusement ride manufacturing to elite matchmaking - he explains what these companies have in common.
