You are real life advisers

You take individual resources and analyze real life issues. Love the show listen while I take a morning dog walk I like the inter action the two host have on couples later years financial situations I’m also part of Allworth financial advisor in Roseville Ca

Good Show, Except for Some Callers

I really like the show. It’s informative and entertaining. However, a lot of the callers are what I would call “humble braggers,” those who have multi-millions saved for retirement and just seem to want a pat on the back.
