Please bring this back!!!

I love this podcast because it has taught me so much. I’m still currently going through it. Considering taking a while to go through it because I don’t want to end.

Financial security

It made me feel more secure in my financial standings as a millennial. Especially because the people talking about finances are people in a similar situation as me.

So much great advice

This podcast is chock full of tips and tricks to getting ahead, and the co-hosts are just as intimidated as the rest of us at the start. There's interviews every episode with experts that link to great resources in their field, so it's super easy to get started in the topic at hand. As the podcast went on and got towards the end, the tips and advice also extended towards general life and living well advice.
It was super handy for me personally. I'm 21, a college dropout, work, live with my parents, and was kind of stuck in one place when I started listening. But this show gave me the confidence and resources to open a credit card to start building my credit score, start a ROTH, save more money, and just helped me think about where I am in life in general. Now I'm still in the same place, but I've got my ducks in a row and am actively looking around for the right step to take and move forward in my life.
