It was an absolute pleasure to speak with a Justin earlier. I can’t wait to listen to the podcast.
Not just for retirees
I started listening after I ran out of other podcasts on the off chance there might be some bits that would be of use in the future, I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the amount of content that’s useful for people still decades away from retirement, it really worth listening to for anyone interested in personal finance and the path to FI/ retirement. Keep up the good work
As I start to think about retirement, I have found this podcast really helpful. It isn’t just for wealthy people but really for people who want to live well.
