Abosolutely excellent! Must hear for any retiree or soon to be retired.

Mostly a sales pitch, but some good ideas

Beyond the sales pitch, some good stuff, but one highly misleading point they keep making: no, Roth IRAs are not “tax-free;” the tax is paid upfront, not deferred. Huge difference. Also, while I want to pay as little in tax as the next guy, I would never do business (or continue listening to the podcast of) a company that leans into how they “HATE taxes.” Vote on how that money is spent and how much of it is required of us, but stop with the HATE stuff. Not attractive.
