Theresa is my hero

I’m only 39 and already feel panicked about “being behind” in retirement saving. Theresa pulls me back to the reality that this is a systemic problem, not an individual one, as so many insidious forces would like us all to believe.

Enjoyable, but One Sided

Enjoyed the podcast and hoping that they produce more. Especially interesting are those interviews of people brave enough to reveal their financial health.

Although the podcast is one sided it is openly so. The producers did a great job of outlining their position. Would be interesting to hear future podcasts that deal with the opposing side’s questions like;
- social security takes about 15% from our paychecks through worker and employer taxes, and most believe SS benefits stink. So how much more are people supposed to give?
- Can people trust the government with our retirement?
- Baby Boomers lived through one of the most prosperous times in history, why should the younger generations feel sorry for them because they didn’t save and invest like their parents did?
