I have listened to you for many years… And I always appreciate how you bring such a personalized touch to your great financial advice. Keep up the great work -and know that your influence has made a significant difference in many peoples lives…💕with love and gratitude… Maureen DeLucia

Engaging, educational, and entertaining

Farnoosh‘s background as a journalist and financial expert elevates the show beyond either just a financial education show or an interview show and provides instead an engaging podcast with gems of wisdom directly transferable to real life. I love this show so much that in between new episodes I’ve been going through the backlist on my commute, and am already in the 300s without getting tired of it at all. Farnoosh does a fantastic job of asking questions that humanize money issues across a huge span of diverse speakers. Also quick note that as a fellow Iranian-American woman I was so grateful to hear Farnoosh speak out about the current situation in Iran. It would have been easy not to say anything and it means so much that she uses her platform to bring awareness to major global issues like this one and others in the past also.

SO Relevant, Relatable, and Informative! A Must-Listen.

Farnoosh is one of the most inspiring and well-researched voices in the personal finance space. She and her guests cover a wide range of financial topics from investing, to credit, to career change, to crypto, and so much more. All concepts and ideas are presented in an easy/digestible manner and neatly packaged into 30-minute episodes- perfect for a walk, work break, or quick cardio session. I’ve been a loyal listener since the 2020 Covid quarantine days and now find myself bookmarking my favorite episodes to re-visit in the future as a refresher (episodes 1294, 1180, and 789 just to name a few.)

Thank you so much, Farnoosh, for being such a thoughtful, positive, and powerful female influence in the financial podcast space <3
