Thanks for a great season!

I really enjoy the interviews from experts who have a wide perspective (like the New Yorker writer). It’s really easy to think of the world only from your perspective when you don’t get to see behind the scenes that people in certain professions do, and unless you’re a financial professional in certain roles, you have no idea what other people’s money looks like esp outside of your socioeconomic status. Hearing from someone who has seen this variety helps educate all of us.

Listen to every episode, then listen again!

While this podcast is primarily geared towards women, I think all guys should listen to every episode and then listen again, this time taking notes! The podcast helps to explore sensitive topics around money, relationships, equality, and so much more, as well as the connectedness between all these aspects of our lives. Many of the issues and dialogue can be truly eye opening for men and can help us understand and realize the often invisible aspects the women in our lives go through on a daily basis. Tanja and Kara do a fantastic job of delivering high quality episodes with insights from reputable sources and relate these back at a very individual level that hits home. 10/10 would listen. Stay rad! :)

Refreshing Take on Financial Freedom

There are plenty of resources out there on the "how-to" of financial freedom, but few address the trickier systemic issues. The world is not a fair place, and everyone is not on equal footing. These fierce ladies don't come out and say, "you should do this, this, and that", but rather, they remind listeners to ask the "why" behind financial inequality. Refreshing vioce in the personal finance world that can feel like a giant echo chamber!
