A delight for the ears and the pocketbook

I enjoy the casual conversations between Lisa and Harrison, almost as if though they just happened to hit “record” while chatting a coffee shop. What I love most is their reasonable approach to personal finance as they advocate for contentment while “running one’s own race” rather than getting caught up in what others are doing. When they say personal finance is personal, they mean it. No agenda here.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Lisa and Mr. Mad Monster have such a refreshing approach to money and life in general. Yes, it’s important to save and invest but life is for living. They get that and live that (through trial and error of course).

Keep up the great work!

Enjoyable and level headed look at FIRE

I consider myself on the fringes of the Fire movement (embrace many of the basics but am not interested in living on 10k/year in a van down by the river). I was a little hesitant to add another financed-related podcast to my rotation but I’m really enjoying listening to the mad money podcast as these two are funny and realistic about financial independence. There are not many Gen X voices in this space which also lends a breath of fresh air. I feel like they could be my friends or neighbors. Keep up the great work Mad Money Monsters!
