Refreshing energy

I listen to many accounting podcasts and YouTube channels, and it’s refreshing to finally hear one coming from younger people.

The majority of accounting podcasts feel more like CPE lectures or expert panels. Even when they contain interesting info, the way it’s presented is often devoid of personality and excitement. That’s fine for experienced accountants, but for new people, it's an audio sleeping pill. (Not good for a field already stereotyped as boring.)

Becky and Norma conversations are the opposite. They clearly have lots of enthusiasm about their new accounting careers, and this energy alone could attract new young audience members who are thinking of joining the field.

I hope they bring on more guests their age to discuss their interests, questions, experiences, and hopefully, their personalities trigger more interest in others. Accounting media definitely needs more of it.

Fun podcast!

Okay glad I’m not the only one who didn’t know a lot about tax withholding! Also this is a fun podcast that also has some great information!

Very Relatable

I enjoy listening because what y’all are saying is so relatable. I am a semester ahead of y’all in that I finished my undergrad this past December. Having the two completely different pathways that y’all chose and why, gives a larger perspective on the options to pursue in the real world of accounting. It’s funny because I relate to both of you even though you are going opposite directions, because I am in private accounting with a 9-5 while also doing full time grad school online to sit for the CPA exam when I’m done with school! I’d love to connect or have a conversation about the experiences I’ve been through because so much changes within 6 months after graduating undergrad!
