Can’t say enough about So Money and Faroosh

I started listening to Farnoosh in April 2020 as my walking buddy during the pandemic. So Money has yet to disappoint. I’ve gone back and listened to many of the past episodes and they still ring true and relevant. Most recently, Farnoosh’s interview with Mercii Thomas on understanding financial abuse really struck home for me. It wasn’t until I listened to that episode that I was finally able to verbalize what occurred to me in a previous relationship in terms of it actually being financial abuse. Knowing there is a podcaster addressing topics from crypto currency to investing to managing finances as a couple just makes me want to listen more. Please keep the incredible content coming!

This Podcast Can Change Your Life

Highly recommend this podcast regardless of where you are on your financial journey. Farnoosh is great at explaining the nuanced aspects of personal finance in an accessible way. She provides actionable advice for pretty much anyone - strategies to pay down debt, negotiate a raise, invest and save for the future, plan for big purchases. It’s been really rewarding to build my financial knowledge and exercise more power and choice in my life.
