Paul puts money in its box

Despite the dodgy pun in the show title this is an excellent episode. Good to hear Paul being interviewed for a change and Jason brings out some really useful learning points for listeners from Paul’s Money journey. The summary/recap at the end works really well and, because these podcasts use real life case studies, they feel more relatable and instructive too. Shout out for the funky music as well.

Excellent podcast

An excellent podcast with a thoughtful, intelligent questions from Jason delivered in an easy, relatable style. The are some profound insights to take away and learn from. I am gradually working my way through the archives, as I find it fascinating to hear all the different stories and how very different out earliest experiences can impact how we behave around money later in life, and how it changes as we move through the different stages of life. Highly recommended.
