You can afford anything, but not everything. We make daily decisions about how to spend money, time, energy, focus and attention – and ultimately, our life. Every decision is a trade-off against another choice.

But how deeply do we contemplate these choices? Are we settling for the default mode? Or are we ruthlessly optimizing around a deliberate life?

Host Paula Pant interviews a diverse array of entrepreneurs, early retirees, millionaires, investors, artists, adventurers, scientists, psychologists, productivity experts, world travelers and regular people, exploring the tough work of living a truly excellent life.

Great Medium-depth look into personal finance

I love this show because it goes past the budgeting part of personal finance and into the financial planning aspect without requiring listeners to have a finance education.
I think Paula does a great job of remaining neutral and asking the right questions to guests. Her personal story is very interesting but she does not impose it upon every podcast and conversation.
I like the variety of topics. It is nice to have a podcast that switches varieties a lot.
The show is great quality!

Love this podcast

I just love everything about afford anything. Paula is so ‘common sense’, no get rich quick, no crazy risky advice, just good quality well planned podcasts offering well thought out and sensible advice offered by the always kind and thoughtful, non-judgy Paula Pant. By far my favorite podcast. I wish I’d discovered it sooner, but then I wouldn’t be able to binge on it so I’m still happy to find it later!

Great podcast

I’ve listened to lots of different podcasts and this one is in my top 2 or 3 favorites. Though Paula says she works in the personal finance area, her content goes way beyond that and really is about how to optimize your life. How to get the most out of our limited resources such as money and time.
