I immediately stop my life and listen when new episodes drop

This is my favorite podcast! Tanja and Kara are two total bosses, and come together to create amazing content. They approach each episode/topic backed with a lot of research, and truly make me look at things I *think* I understand in a new light. Love love love them and wish I could listen to a new episode daily!

Best Financial Podcast for Men (seriously)

I’m not sure what the male/female breakdown for the Fairer Cents audience is, but I’ll assume it skews towards women & non straight white males, and I can see why it’s awesome for women - it’s literally the first podcast I’ve recommended to my wife.

But... it’s men who could benefit most from listening. I find myself wanting to talk back to Kara & Tanja and their guests through the AirPods - to tell them, “yes, this is what I’ve been trying to explain” (poorly), or, “that’s exactly the way I used to think,” and even (despite my thinking how woke I am), “oh, I didn’t think of it that way.”

Truly bingeworthy & educational in all the best ways.
