Real, authentic facts!

Chris and his team really know what they are talking about. Covering a wide variety of topics, Chris does an excellent job of keeping it real and not sugar coating things like those instagram “influencers” who want you to pay 100$ a month to get financial advice do. Smart man and great content

This is one of the most authentic and genuine economic podcasts I’ve ever heard. They aren’t pretentious and seem like two friends talking about things we all wish we understood better. Great way to stay up to date!
