    Show Summary: 
    Inflation continues to hit most Americans' bottom line.  The things we use and need the most are costing more than ever.  Groceries, gas, electricity, and everything we use daily cost more than last year.  On top of that, people are losing jobs, and a recession is looming or already here.  The savings that most people collected during the pandemic shutdown have been whittled away, and many people have turned to credit and debt to make ends meet.  If this sounds like your story, you are not alone!  In today's episode of The Fat & Broke Podcast, we will help you better understand debt and give you all the tools you need to pay it down fast!

ChrisfromNC ,

Awesome podcast!

I really appreciate this podcast and the helpful information it provides on such a wide variety of topics. I love the banter between hosts and they don't use a lot of inside jokes that the audience wouldn't get (i've heard this on other podcasts) and are able to balance between being light hearted and funny but serious at times. They really speak to their audience and aren't just focused on each other. Thank u for this podcast!

The Best!

The chemistry these three have is fantastic. This podcast is fun and laugh out loud funny, but also incredibly informative. They do a great job of helping to explain and deliver serious, complex information in a very accessible, actionable way.

Lots of laughs and learning!

Every time I listen to this podcast, I learn many valuable tips in the midst of tons of laughter!

Thanks to Gary, Sarah, and Peter, I’ve learned more about intelligent financial planning and even found an excellent budgeting app that is helping us better understand our finances and set new goals.

I’m looking forward to learning more with each episode!
