Comfort during crisis

I’ve been listening to Brad and Jonathan from the very beginning and should have written a review before now - sorry! I’m in Australia and readying myself and my husband to retire - in our very early 60’s. Although we are certainly not retiring early, we will, with the knowledge gained from Brad, Jonathan and their many wonderful guests be able to retire and enjoy the rest of our lives without having to worry about supporting ourselves. It’s a scary time seeing our funds go down and our way of life changed so quickly but listening to Brad and Jonathan work through many different scenarios and sharing their own experiences of this crazy time is very reassuring. They offer comforting and commonsense advice that cuts through the chaos. Long may they continue - I hope they realise how much they are needed now more than ever. Thanks guys and keep up the good work. I hope all their listeners continue to support them - we will need them on the other side! Belinda from Oz.

J&B have incredible knowledge with FI and every episode they deliver their knowledge to the audience with varied and interesting thoughts.

This podcast is a milestone for my FI journey! Thank you!
