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❤️

Felt seen and heard

I’ve been listening to your podcast for a few years now, and I’ve been noticing that you’ve been saying more and more, or at least acknowledging, that some of the people you talk about are in Hetero relationships. Such a small thing goes a long way and I felt seen and heard. That we need to acknowledge the differences and the presence of lgbtq relationships even if it’s in that indirect way. Thank you.

Offers great financial insights!

Love this podcast! This is my favorite finance podcast! Chelsea is a fantastic host, always asks great questions, and stays on topic and great at driving the conversation. I’ve learned quite a bit from listening and appreciate the variety of guests she has on from financial experts to food bloggers to fashion experts - while all staying relevant to money topics.
