Rather unique perspectives on life & finances. I found his emergency preparedness info last year unique and helpful, even if slightly extreme.
Fun and varied
I love this podcast, thanks for producing Joshua. I’ve found the tax, estate planning, and asset protection areas most helpful for me. I enjoy the occasion hot take (I’m now convinced I need minivan). A deep back catalogue to peruse filled with both personal finance 101 as well exploring ideas that live up to the name (renouncing citizenship, permanent portfolio, LTD insurance, thought exercises for goal setting). Would love to see more book reviews, the Tony Robbins book review was exceptional. Also loved all of the advice related to raising young kids.
On my Podcast Shortlist!
Joshua Sheats is an articulate, intelligent, and thought-provoking Podcaster. His topics are much broader than finance and explored in-depth. I’m a woman in my 50s and what I like most about the Podcast is that it challenges my mind and my ideals—it has taught me to look at things differently, deeply, and with purpose. Yes, there are some episodes not for me, but I take what works for me and leave the rest. I appreciate his hard work.
