    Decisions, Decisions. In this episode of the podcast I use my love for number crunching to thoroughly analyze one listener’s debate between two raffle prize options -  a lump sum of money or a free car lease term! 
    As you will see, there are creative ways to make the most out of either option. Listen to hear what I think the right choice is!

Encouraging, practical and hilarious

I found Popcorn Finance a few weeks ago and went through most of the episodes from the very beginning. -I’m all caught up now!- I will say the advice Chris gives and the guests he has on are timeless. I’ve been looking for information on finance and this podcast gives great bite-sized pieces and is not overwhelming.

Authentic, Empowering and Amazingly Practical

It’s obvious Chris puts extraordinary effort in covering important topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights they bring to bear is still mind-blowing Every. Single. Time.

No matter the subject, you’re guaranteed to gain something from every episode - can’t recommend Popcorn Finance enough 🙌

Breaking down complicated finance 101 . Love it !!

For all the people who just don’t get stocks , investing, and all the terms that go along with it ... this is the podcast for you . I can count on him for giving all the financial news and break it down for the finance dummies like myself . I’ve been listening here and there but after this episode today, I am in awe of his talent to clarify and make them simple for others to understand . Check out episode “ what’s going on with GameStop?” Because he took the time to use analogies “popcorn shoes” .. I now understand this huge GameStop/ Robinhood rage the internet is going off about . I pray God continues to bless this!
