Missing the real EPOP

I keep listening as I hope to hear a return to the days before real estate, year in review, and now these little short whatevers. I miss the song. I love that song. Please come back to us!

Much Less enjoyable now for a former fan

This went from being an enjoyable travel show to a rather insufferable couple that I really can’t stand to listen to.
Putting aside all their shenanigans during Covid (not isolating from family and friends, traveling domestically and internationally with their small kids, getting sick and exposing people, etc) they’re also own a ton of Airbnbs, which we all know jack up property prices, displace locals, and degrade locations they’re in. I appreciate them trying to share their secret to success, but it’s not exactly helpful if it includes magically owning a house right out of college, having a parent co-sign loans with you, and using very morally questionable “investments” like Airbnb.
In short this has gone from being a fun relatable podcast to being just another homage to hustle culture and platitudes about financial independence from people who already had a big head start in life. It’s also kind of amusing to me that I, a regular loser with a 9-5, have been to more places than they have, but they position themselves as experts.
