Dawn from the Mitten ,

Thank you!!!

I LOVE this podcast! It is the perfect mix of education and entertainment. The banter back and forth between Chris and Allison has me laughing out loud at least once per episode. I’ve been resisting becoming a patreon member as I’ve been trying to cut my monthly subscription budget but know it’s only a matter of time before I come over to the dark side and hit the ‘subscribe’ button.

L. Monique ,

Love it!

This podcast is a thought provoking while also light hearted. I enjoy the truly awkward scenarios shared. Especially those shared by the hosts.

sarahcnelly ,

Good advice but too much fluff.

I really like the advice given to the listeners that write in, but that is such a small portion of each episode with lots of other fluff around it. Consider ditching the personal awkward stories at the start. Sometimes they are funny, but other times they feel forced and have nothing to do with finance, which is why I think most people come to listen. It’s also distracting when Allison goes on tangents. It takes away from the valuable advice you are trying to offer your listeners. I will try to keep listening but much prefer Popcorn Finance (a Chris-only finance podcast) because it’s to-the-point and super valuable!
