Love the wisdom

Thanks for sharing all the fun facts and planning info. I’ve been listening for 2 years.
I recommend listening at 1.5x (but I recommend that for almost all podcasts)

Used to listen more often

Bro provides sincere answers. I like when actual questions are answered but it seems like this podcast stretches too far to come up with ideas, and more recently the guests have little to do with stocks or investing. I find myself fast forwarding or skipping it all together.

Favorite money podcast

Covers a variety of finance topics with guest commentators, a real-world practical approach, and two charismatic hosts. Alison Southwick is full of energy and enthusiasm and Robert Brokamp offers solid dependable insights. I also like the way they include Rick, the editor. This the best of the Motley Fool podcasts in my opinion, informative and upbeat, and is the only money related podcast I listen to consistently. Love your podcast!
