Imagine listening in on these raw, unfiltered conversations with real couples… One partner is in $300,000 in debt, but shrugs it off. The other cries at night, anxious about the future. A couple that’s so worried about money, they never feel they’ll have enough. When they eat out, they order chicken instead of steak to save $10. Their household income: $600,000. Two parents who feel overwhelmed by work, kids, and debt. When I ask them how they’d describe their lives, they instantly say the same word: “Stuck.” Ramit Sethi asks the questions we wish we all could ask, presenting a totally different philosophy on money: • Spend extravagantly on the things you love, as long as you cut costs mercilessly on the things you don’t. • Ask $30,000 questions, not $3 questions. • A Rich Life is more than math -- it’s mastering your money psychology. From the author of the bestselling book, ‘I Will Teach You To Be Rich,’ learn how money psychology affects these couples… and how to create your own Rich Life.

Favourite show!

I’ve never missed an episode, I love this show! These conversations about money are relatable and confronting, it’s not always easy to see these patterns in ourselves but it becomes so clear when we see/hear it through others. The behavioural coaching Ramit provides to his guests about their emotional spending, avoidant habits and decision making is beyond valuable. I appreciate the balance he strikes between being curious and compassionate, while also challenging and holding guests accountable to dig deep so they can experience real change. As a graduate student studying organizational coaching, I’m inspired by Ramit’s coaching abilities and overall presence. And of course, I’m beyond grateful for the practical financial skills I’ve gained over the years of listening and reading his book!

Great Podcast

After searching for financial poscasts in order to further my money management education I was excited to find Ramit’s show. After having read his book, I enjoy how well structured this podcast is and how it uses real life stories in order for the audience to relate to different situations.

The podcast has a great flow to it, can be at some times very direct, emotional and funny. Also, this might sound funny, but Ramit’s voice and communication skills make it very addictive. I’ve often stopped listening to a podcast 2-3 minutes into the show because I couldn’t connect with the narrator’s voice or style.

Love this podcast so much!

Poor sound quality

I really like this show but the sound quality of the guests is just so bad sometimes. There are times I have to turn it off. I realize the guests are recording from their homes but they should have figured out a way to make it sound better.
