A Great Balance of Research and Application

This show is incredibly well produced and Katie’s intimate knowledge of the subject matter pays off with a short path to all the insights. Highly recommended.

Dan Heath PLEASE come back!

I have dutifully listened since Ms. Milkman has taken over to every episode of what was once an exceptional podcast. It has been a progressively worse experience with each podcast. I originally subscribed because this show marketed itself to be an intersection of human behavior and financial decisions. Mr. Heath did an amazing job of connecting those two dots in the first season.

Since then, this podcast has devolved into a mishmash of pseudo psychology, sociology, and anthropology. The podcast should actually be renamed "Non Sequitur" because Ms. Milkan cannot seem to make a point and stick to it in the episodes. Instead, we have random points and random perspectives all for the ostensible purpose of promoting some soft-science idea or theory. Most damning, however, is the fact that the only connection she ever makes to personal finance and making financial decisions is to plug Mr. Riepe’s companion podcast (which is excellent btw).

Schwab needs to remember that it's a financial institution and not some university humanities department. Please figure this out before Season 4.
