Listen On: Spotify Google Podcasts Apple Podcasts Watch on YouTube Show Notes (Ryan) What they do: Robinhood is a commission-free brokerage platform, I believe the first. So, for anyone unfamiliar, the brokerage system for a long time required anyone that was buying or selling a security to pay a fee.
