Funny and informative

The world of finance can be dull and complex. Josh and Mark are absolutely brilliant and bringing to life some of the big areas when it comes to financial planning. They talk about it in simple terms and even make it funny and engaging. Would highly recommend to absolutely everyone.

Exceeded my high expectations

An excellent personal finance podcast delivered in a gentle, humorous and informative way. Joshua is knowledgeable and sensible in his advice and knows his stuff. Marc is a good foil for Joshua’s razor sharp wit.
