ChelseyD26 ,

Great podcast!

I have listened to all of your episodes and they are very understandable! Great information!

Chrystina Noel ,

Great information in bite-sized pieces!

I downloaded every episode of this podcast and listened to them all in the course of a week. I consistently feel like I'm not being "adult" enough in my daily life and this podcast gave me some quick tips and vocabulary to feel more educated about having conversations around estate planning. Thanks for a great show, Jen! I've already recommended it to friends!
