Young, relevant and engaging!

This is a refreshing take on the normal money conversation. It feels like it’s made for the world we’re making right now rather than just repeating the same old topics. Thank you ladies for making a show for the everyone, and keeping the topics vibrant and engaging!

Passing This On

As I’ve actively pursued financial enlightenment for myself, I find I have a strong urge to share this information with my daughter- a recent college graduate. I want so badly for her to be empowered in a way that I never was. My recent self education has built my confidence and I thank The Fairer Cents for adding to my knowledge and encouraging me to question and refine my understanding of money.

Refreshing, useful, and a Delight to Listen to!

I just found this podcast through my other recent discovery, the blog Our Next Life, and I’m loving it. Just churned through season 1, and I love the fresh perspective these two bring to the personal finance space. Plus their rapport is so en pointe from the very first episode — they’re interesting and engaging to listen to and each have vastly different experiences to bring to the table. I’m loving the binge catch-up, but I’m already hungry for more new episodes!
