Canadian Couch Potato is a podcast designed to help you become a better investor with index funds and ETFs. It is hosted by veteran journalist, blogger, and portfolio manager Dan Bortolotti. Dan offers straight-up, practical advice for Canadians who want to learn more about index investing, whether they manage their own portfolios or work with an advisor. Episodes typically feature an interview with an expert on a specific investing or financial planning topic. In a segment called “Bad Investment Advice,” Dan pokes fun at unhelpful articles in the financial media, and for "Ask the Spud" he's joined by his colleague Amanda Dalziel to answer investing questions from listeners and blog readers.

Erika Toth from BMO joins Dan for a discussion about the inner workings of ETFs and some of the misunderstandings surrounding these products.

We wrap up with an answer to a listener’s question about how an ETF’s management fees are calculated. For complete show notes on ETF Deep Dive with Erika Toth visit canadiancouchpotato.com/podcast.
