Reliable and essential guidance!

Until now, I have never scrambled for a pen and paper mid-podcast to write down advice. Your openness and guidance (and your guests’!) has increased my confidence and financial literacy after only a few episodes. 2020 is off to a great start with this show in my feed!

Very thought provoking

Extremely interesting and informative. A refreshing take on the tropics discussed.

Intelligent and Thought-Provoking

I just recently discovered The Fairer Cents and I’ve been devouring it. Thank you Tanja and Kara! I’m a woman and would consider myself a feminist, but you’ve got me second-guessing (rightly) many of my own perceptions and assumptions. Truly thought-provoking.
