# What I'm reading / listening
In line with my new years goal of listening to more podcasts, here are the podcasts I've listened to this month.
### Listen Money Matters
I've been a big fan of Thomas Frank's YouTube channel for a while now. This podcast is all about personal finance.
The investing episode is really good as a starter to investing, although this podcast is mainly American advice it's good advice nevertheless.
### The Tim Ferris Show
Listen to this every day on my run 😁
### 99% invisible
Amazing 10/10 would reccomend best podcast every year forever
### Smart Passive Income
Really good podcast with a good introduction to making passive income!
### The daily
Amazing show for my daily run!
### Prime ministers questions
It's important to care about your country
## How to win friends and influence people
I haven't finished this yet! I'm about 3 chapters from finishing. This is my 4th re-read of this book. By far, this book has had the most influence on my life. As someone with autism i hate all the non-rules of a normal human life. This book gives me clear rules on how to be sociable, its AMAZING!!
## Fluent Python
Python is such an amazing language! I've been a Python coder for 10 !!!! years this year!!! wowwww!!! This book is taking me from mediocre to advance python user. I love seeing all the quirks and cool things you can do in Python. Like uh hello Tuple Unpacking?? How is this feature real???
## I will teach you to be rich
A really good book. It's written in American, so skip all the 401k stuff. I think the only useful things to UK people are the budgetting, investing & maybe credit cards? Everything else is pretty useless.
Thanks to this book, I moved my entire investments over to Vanguard Life stratergy 80.
## Tim Hale's Smarter Investing
Really really good book on investing in the UK!!! If you want to learn to invest, this is the book you need!!! I loved how the author has actually been there and done it, not just some academic too!
## The art of happiness
Not finished yet, but I'm looking at increasing my happiness. I suffer from depression, and I've always liked buddism. I'm currently on chapter 3, so should be a good read!!
## Mediations - aurcilus Antonin
Not finished yet, but so far it seems really good :)
## Thinking fast and slow
Not finished yet, not currently enjoying this book. Might give it up since it's so big and boring (so far)
## How to write your first book
This book answered SO MUCH of my questions!! I can't wait to publish my first book!!
## Passive income
£5.70. It pays for my medium subscription, so it's good!!
Investing is about the long term, so I'm okay with this!!
£5 from a stranger!!! So thankful oh my god thank you sooo much!!
£332 this month, not bad :)
£389. This is quite a lot, however, I took my dad out to a fancy restaurent for fathers day, and brought a load of amazon stuff. I'm hoping to get this under £250 next month
£83 invested in LS 80, £103 invested into crypto. I'm looking at other options like P2P lending too.
£185.32 in investments, £759 in bank accounts. As it stands, 11% of my networth is in crypto and 8% in LS 80. 80% in cash! Goal by the end of the year: get 40% of my networth in investments! Diversify more too. I'm looking at P2P lending currently!
I have around £200 set aside for my book, £200 set aside for a holiday and £300 waiting to be invested next month.
goals for next month:
* look at peer to peer lending
* look at bonds
I've run every single week. The week I went to Download I didn't run, so that sucks but yano
