I wish I had access to this podcast 30 years ago!

What a great show! My parents didn't teach me anything about money when I was in school. Eric and Brandon are wise beyond their years and explain concepts VERY clearly. They do the research and present each concept in a way that everyone can easily understand! Highly recommend!
