Jrivas1 ,

A refreshing voice for personal finance

This show is a unique concept. Bringing financial advice to a generation that so desperately needs it.

Kirk Barbera ,

San Antonio specific, broadly applicable.

I live in San Antonio where this show is based. It's great financial advice with a specific San Antonio slant, but the advice is helpful anyway. Jake also has a great way of getting to the heart of difficult financial problems.
