A gem!

This podcast is really relatable for an African American women, but there is such great advice for anyone who wants to educate themselves financially. This show is a must!

An important voice in the personal finance space!

Love, love, LOVE this podcast! Delyanne adds a great perspective to the personal finance discussion. She’s an excellent interviewer, has a nonjudgmental approach to finances, and covers a wonderful variety of topics. Subscribe, you won’t regret it!

montoyaste ,

Drivel, with a healthy dose of over-saturated “insight”

Granted, I’ve thus far only listened to the most recent episode with Bethany Frankel (sp?) and found it to be an oddly over-indulgent and congratulatory soliloquy to Bethany’s perceived excellence. Honestly, every excerpt from her book cited during the discussion varied from poorly repackaged wisdom (trust your gut) to outright, and downplayed white privilege (meet people where they’re standing [even if those people are racist or are perpetuating systems of oppression]).

This episode was a waste of time, unless you’re starting from having been a white woman who starred on a reality tv show.
