Love it!

I am in the Army and a Sergeant at that. Life is so busy so I can’t sit down and read a lot. This podcast has really become a life saver. I can listen to the podcast during my white space time and I’ve learned a lot already. Looking forward to the next episodes.

Good start, great potential

It’s easier to listen to financial trends & service offerings from NFCU, rather than try to find time to read through updates; so this podcast should be a great resource.
