TBH this is the best podcast

I listen to every podcast that comes out. They present fun information in a way everyday people can understand. My favourite part is that this podcast is that it’s perfect to listen to when falling asleep.

Cream of the Crop

I am one of those rare people who has listened to EVERY SINGLE EPISODE of this podcast. IKR? Weirdooooo. Whatevs - the early years were phenomenal and it was totally worth going back to 'experience' the Great Recession as it happened and check out all the fall-out afterwards.

There was definitely a lull in quality a few years back, and some churn in the hosts, but I have stayed with it and have been encouraged by the return to top quality recently. If you like interesting stories about money, economics and the mysteries of how our financial systems work, you'll find this podcast to be entertaining and enlightening.

Keep up the great work!
