Top notch podcast, always interesting and in-depth story at the top of the episode that illustrates the concept. No fancy jargon, practical advice for every day life.

My new favorite!!!!

How have I survived without this show? I love how Katie makes me THINK about the daily decisions I make (or don’t make) and WHY I do what I do! I’m waist deep in listening to the whole back catalog and I’m loving it!

Great Podcast for Improving Decisions

Dr Milkman does a great job bringing on expert guest speakers to present interesting topics related to human behavior as it relates to decision making. The topics are not only good for financial decisions but also good for everyday life.
