You can afford anything, but not everything. We make daily decisions about how to spend money, time, energy, focus and attention – and ultimately, our life. Every decision is a trade-off against another choice.

But how deeply do we contemplate these choices? Are we settling for the default mode? Or are we ruthlessly optimizing around a deliberate life?

Host Paula Pant interviews a diverse array of entrepreneurs, early retirees, millionaires, investors, artists, adventurers, scientists, psychologists, productivity experts, world travelers and regular people, exploring the tough work of living a truly excellent life.

Easy Listening and Useful Information

Some podcasts are easy to listen to and are entertaining. Some have good information. This is both. Interesting perspectives on FIRE and on real estate investing, but also great profiles of interesting people and other financial information. Paula draws on her journalism background to ask good questions and really listen to the answers. I also enjoy her “takeaways” summaries. One of the better podcasts in its genre.

Not your cookie cutter podcast

I’ve been listening to Afford Anything for about 2 years now and it’s the only financial podcast I consistently listen to and look forward to new episodes. She has unique guest and her interview skills are top notch!

AWESOME personal finance podcast!

I’m a young woman about Paula’s age, and it’s so awesome to hear someone who sounds like me speaking intelligently about personal finance! Representation matters - especially when they are as eloquent and wise as Paula. Personal finance could easily be dry and boring, but Paula shows us what’s interesting, worthwhile or even funny to her, which draws me in every time. I never thought a podcast about money would be my “drop everything and listen” choice (sorry Stuff You Should Know guys, haha) but it definitely is.

Be sure to check out her blog as well, and omg her real estate investing course is the actual bomb. (Do people say that? I mean it’s the best ever.) Keep it up, Paula!!
