Nosedive :(

Obviously, forward momentum of this type of show is hard to maintain. The initial basics are essential and become less so the more ground you cover—because you’ve already taught those lessons. Sadly, this show has doubled down by not only covering less essential or universal topics, but also diminishing quality of coverage. When I listened to the vehicle maintenance episode and the first thing I heard was to keep an expandable seatbelt in my glove compartment, I knew that we had reached rock bottom…As a Democrat and regular NPR listener, it’s still clear when a show has been corrupted by leftist views that are no longer applicable or useful to a broader audience. This show has reached that point, and it’s time for overhaul or termination.

Very Helpful

These podcasts are very helpful. I would like to listen to one on how to refinance student loans. In a little over a month the student loan deferment period will end. Some are paying the federal government rates as high as 10% on their loans. A podcast on this would be very timely.
