(Part 1) CONFESSION: I'm a Grown Adult and I Collect Pokemon Cards w/ Will Gabriel from @silentwill_

A lot of the Pokemon hobby right now has been centered around the monetary value of cards, which is great because there are a lot of things people need to learn and be exposed to when it comes to thinking about hobby collecting from a fiscal perspective. I mean crap, that's what this podcast was built for! But today I want to do something different because while talking about the money isn't a bad thing, I don't always do a good job of balancing the fiscal perspective with the purely collector perspective. So in this episode, I brought on Will Gabriel (William Gabriel if you want to make him a prince) from @silentwill_ and we do talk about some financial and investing topics, but we also do a LOT of talking about Pokemon from the perspective of being a grown a$$ adult buying Pokemon cards. This is a bit of a departure from our normal programming so I hope you enjoy, thank you! :)
