In the latest installment of our Motley Fool Money podcast, advisors Seth Jayson, James Early, and Shannon Zimmerman discuss some of the big questions of the week. 

President Obama proposed far-reaching financial reforms, but what would the new regulations mean for investors? News Corp.'s (NYSE:NWS) MySpace just laid off 30% of its staff and Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) YouTube is losing tens of millions of dollars. Do social media sites like Twitter and Facebook have real money-making potential or are they just really, really, really expensive hobbies? And in honor of Father's Day, what financial pearls of wisdom are our panelists sharing with their own children?

All that, plus hear why U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB), BB&T (NYSE:BBT), Santander (NYSE:STD) and the Vanguard Small-Cap Value ETF (VBR) are the investments our panel is eyeing this week.
