Eric from Ontario ,

Informative, entertaining with minimal doomsday rhetoric

Have been a listener since episode 1. The trio each contribute their expertise to peel back the curtain on global finance and its impact for the everyday Canadian.

I still think there is over use of the term “roll over” but otherwise 5 stars.
