For those of you who just can't get enough of the awesome content that we try to provide you with via the website and our other channels, we've got a great new way to soak up the knowledge!

Announcing the BiggerPockets Real Estate Investing & Wealth Building Podcast

If you're familiar with podcasts, feel free to ignore any of the basic advice, but for those of you who are not in the know, a podcast is essentially a radio show. I've wanted to put one together for many years now, and with the help of @Brandon Turner, I've made that desire a reality!

The largest marketplace for podcasts is on iTunes, a place I'm sure you're all familiar with, however, you don't need an iPod, iPad, iPhone, Mac or other Apple device to listen.

Simply go to our podcast:
http://www.biggerpockets.com/podcast

Click on the show you want to listen to, then listen via the embedded player. You can also download the .mp3 file for that show below the player itself.

Otherwise, if you want to subscribe via iTunes, you can do that too.

The Inaugural Podcast: Building a Successful House Flipping Business and Losing Millions with @Marty Boardman

Today's inaugural show ( http://www.biggerpockets.com/show1 ) is a great one, featuring Marty Boardman. In it, we talk about his dramatic rise and fall in real estate, including how he lost $8 million dollars!

Additionally, we cover:
- The Best Advice he Ever Received about Real Estate Investing
- How to Find Local Mentors to Teach, Train, and Bring You Under Their Wings
- How to Quit Your Job and Become a Full Time Real Estate Investor
- Using The Four Flipping Boxes to Flip Houses
- How to Raise Private Money for Your Real Estate Investing Deals
- Why Wholesalers Do Not Need a Buyer’s List - and What They Do Need
- The Four “Must Haves” in a Real Estate Partnership

Check it out Now!

Help Make the BiggerPockets Podcast the TOP Rated Real Estate Show on iTunes!

You can actually help us make the show more visible by leaving your positive feedback on iTunes if you find it to be valuable (I know you will). The more good ratings we get, the better the odds that others seeking out our top quality real estate investing content will find it.

Subscribing and rating the show would be incredibly helpful and I'd really appreciate it if you could take the time to do so. To subscribe to the show, just visit the podcast in iTunes (look up BiggerPockets) and click the SUBSCRIBE link:

The more subscribers we get the better, so do subscribe please!

I was hoping you guys would start a podcast. Most real estate podcasts (that I have found at least) seem to focus on wholeselling or other "quick buck" strategies. I hope this draws from the diverse knowledge at Biggerpockets to provide investing information beyond what most podcasts provide.

(edit) I enjoyed the first episode and cannot wait for more. I left a review in iTunes as well. Good work guys!

@Eric F. - Thanks for listening! As you heard from the first show, this isn't about the get rich quick garbage, but about building solid foundations and strategies to help you be successful. I appreciate your feedback and hope you'll spread the word about the show!

Excellent something other then the political banter in the car.. I also like Dave Ramsey and Clark Howard but I need some variety;) If it goes national I would be excited. Instead of Mad Money we will hear Bigger Pockets and create some new rockstars in the world of investing

That is the first podcast I have listened to in a long time (besides one on University of Kentucky sports and cigars) and I was very impressed. I gave up on real estate podcasts a long time ago after not being able to make it through the first 2 mins of any of them. I was very impressed with the hosts, the content, and the guest!

Great job Josh, Brandon and Marty. (oh, and I can play one hell of a cowbell)!

BiggerPockets in the car and on the hiking trail. That was a great first episode. If you haven't listened, Marty tells about how he went up $8 million, down $10 million, and back up again. Check it out.
