Love this!

I love these podcasts! Kathleen Burns Kingsbury has such a relatable voice, and asks insightful questions of her diverse roster of interesting guests. Plus, what a great idea to talk about money myths, as there are so many we all grew up with and continue to perpetuate. I found that the 20-minute length was really manageable, and made the information easily digestible. I ended up listening to several, rather than putting off listening, at all, as I might have done with a longer podcast. I found the podcasts to be enlightening, thought-provoking, and thoroughly enjoyable.
