Authentic Podcast That Continues to Impress

I’ve been a listener from 2050’s first episode, and have always been impressed by Rianka’s candor, honesty, and ability to have open, vulnerable conversations that invite everyone to the table. The podcast was phenomenal to begin with, and in my opinion just keeps growing and improving with each episode and season. A must-listen for anyone interested in DEI, whether you’re in financial planning or not!

Post-modern, SJW nonsense doesn't increase worth

Many will rate things like this without seeing if it actually provides anything of value to the listener, or is more a vehicle for self-validation. This podcast claims to be about expanding diversity, but, like most uses of that word today, it is more about the host's virtue signaling than about anything practical or actionable. While some of the guests have actual advisory credentials, many, including the host, do not have sustainable practices. The few guests that have experience in building successful practices aren't engaged as much in that area as they should be or questioned with the audience in mind. While Rianka has a voice for a podcast, she isn't able to provide as much in the podcast you would think due to the length. She rarely leaves what feels like a scripted outline of topics that often are inappropriate, but when she does can't manage to find depth or continue down paths that listeners would benefit from. There are forced talking points that are just odd; in one she just starts talking about a racial news item with no tie-in, or she laughs inappropriately about politics, that I don't quite understand given the podcast is funded by groups that members do not share her politics, which are clearly Left. Like the podcast funders have hired her to say things they would not about politics, Rianka seems to do the same with some radical guests, and in choosing those guests and the odd moments like laughter, it's clear this podcast isn't inclusive or friendly to many in the financial services world. The youthful lack of self-awareness and empathy for those that the 'diversity' people want to 'teach' empathy to is beyond ironic, but it's lost of Rianka when she or her guests are 'teaching diversity' by doing the same things they claim the "white" profession needs to stop doing. The episodes are 3-5x longer than they need to be (though, some shouldn't be at all), there is little in actionable steps or going into the background of truly successful advisors (and, the political and HR guests are not helpful at all), and the result if it continues this way will be a racial split in the financial organizations that are sponsoring it. Social Justice is the new push of the political types who have no ideas to advance the planning profession, and this heavily sponsored podcast just represents several of those in industry virtue-signaling, though the opportunity cost of pushing diversity via "social justice" will be devistating for the people that this podcast claims to help. Rather than offering positive and actionable steps, a few of the guests talk in postmodern, social justice lingo that they understand, but many may not, that mostly is providing a rebuke of the profession for not achieving cultural Marxist goals of equality of outcome (as evidenced by the ridiculous title, which I'm shocked CFP Board, FPA, and the corporate sponsors don't seem to understand). The net result is the creating of crutches that won't help job seekers, no real substantive ideas to expand demand (since it would be against many of the sponsors agendas to do so), and unnecessary racial division that will be coming to these groups, along with the demand for more funding of nonsense like that put into audio format here. A few of the guests are particular experts in socialism; I think they mistook divisiveness for diversity.
