Love but a bit confused

I really really love both The Financial Confessions and Too Good to Be True but why are they both under the same name under this podcast? Shouldn’t the second one have it’s own podcast? Plus, the episodes aren’t marked as which is which, so it’s really confusing. When TGTBT was about to come out, I remember them saying it would be its own podcast. Was I misremembering or something? Or was it just always only gonna be a few episodes? Like I love both truly, but a bit more consistency and less confusion would be nice. I think there’s another podcast already named Too Good to Be True, so is that why they mixed the podcasts? I feel like they could have just renamed it then though? I don’t know, I’m really confused.🫠 Again, no hate intended! LOVE all of your content, but some clarification would be much appreciated please❤️

Please change ADs transition

I’m not sure if this is a way to get people to start contributing to the podcast financially but what is happening with the terrible ad transition? I feel like this is a recent change but all of a sudden there is a MUCH LOUDER commercial in the middle of a sentence and it’s so jarring. It’s so bad, please fix it!

So far so good.

No complaints about the show. Unless I’m missing some episodes the show always seems like a cautionary tale for creatives who make the choice and take the risks to do creative work for a living. Like somehow that’s bad that we’re not financial wizards. Being being financially savvy can be learned but I really do think some people are naturally gifted at being great with numbers and finance and that part can’t be taught. Just like creativity you can teach skills but not that intangible spark that inspires creativity. I think it’s that spark that moves some people like myself to choose creative work over a job with a 401k. It would be helpful to have more financial strategies that are a little more relatable. Otherwise it’s an interesting podcast.
