Customer Reviews

Acliffe ,

Great timely financial content explained so anyone can follow.

I've loved this show from the first few minutes. I love the different perspectives on important financial topics and how clear the discussions are. The only reason this isn't a 5 star for me is how Jordan Weissmann seems to thinks profanity at every turn is the cornerstone to getting through to us. Also, his constant use of "like" is a major distraction from what would otherwise be a great perspectives.

Such arrogance!

Was enjoying the Succession recaps until the guests started making comments like “why would “regular people”/“civilians” watch this?”. Do you have to be in the mafia to enjoy The Sopranos? Working in the median doesn’t give you special powers of understanding the human condition. Absolutely stunned by the level of arrogance displayed and completely put off listening any further.
