Strange flow but great information

It would be a 5 star podcast for me if the podcast didn’t abruptly stop in the middle of a conversation for some ads. I understand the placement but it’s strange to cut off great conversations and then restart them abruptly. After all the ads and the fan question I forget what the question before the pause was, and I was confused as to where the guest speaker went and why she’s talking about apps. The podcast shares great information and she asks great questions which I think outweighs the strangeness of the podcast layout let’s say, but the ad placement and length just doesn’t flow very well.

One of the best PF podcasts out there!

I have long been a fan of Shannah’s work. What I really love most about the show is how it breaks down complex money matters into the simplest and most honest conversations. Each episode is filled with actionable tidbits to make better money decisions and I really look forward to learning from Shannah and her guests on each episode. Thanks, y’all.
