Needs Better Guests

I like Mary Beth. She seems savvy and articulate but some of the guests so far haven’t offered much. I just listened to episode 6 about dealing with a down market in retirement. The guest started out mentioning “sequence of returns” but then offered no solution. Even when Mary Beth asked her about how retirees should adjust when the long bull run ends and the guest started talking about how to donate RMDs to charity! What?? It was as if she wasn’t even listening. This episode was useless. I’ll continue to subscribe and hope things get better.
