Carlos (Mr Mortgage) is WRONG
I had heard this show had received a very limited amount of 1 star reviews. One, had NOTHING to do with the show whatsoever. This show is not only informative, but witty with an occasional (or even a bit more often then that) dash of sarcasm/humor. That’s a POSITIVE! Some other shows drone on and in with just information, but how BORING! Joe, Big Al, and Andi make this show enjoyable where I actually WANT to listen. I definitely won’t be nodding off. They are all great and the information is not only welcomed but so is the presentation. Give it a try, you will be pleased!
Newer listener here. I appreciate Joe and Al’s take on the various questions submitted. Entertaining and informative, often with a different spin on things.
