Love the SG perspective

Superb Job!

Useful information shared in a manner easy to understand. Very much appreciate this podcast and even if some knowledge may be common, the sharing also serves as good reminders to folks wanting to work on their finances.

Great content but audio levels are not consistent

Interesting episodes and very relevant content as do most of the other reviews mention. I like that the host is enthusiastic about the topics at hand, however, from listening to a few episodes, the host could be more consistent with the audio levels when he speaks. Sometimes what seems like an assertive phrase to a statement can feel like he's shouting down the microphone suddenly. His volume range is too wide and and needs to be controlled to some extent, especially during burst of laughters. It does disrupt the experience of listening to the episodes. Saying that, from the titles of the episodes, the content is very current and can educate interested listeners, so keep up the good work.
