A relevant show for personal finance

I lost touch with his radio talk show for a few years and am glad I am able to locate his program again. The best segments are his detail discussions and strategies for retired/near retired listeners.

He brings up points that one can easily miss and those are good talking points when we meet with our own advisors. I enjoy his references to the academic research (and even downloaded those reports).

If Ray can bring back his super smart (and sometimes funny) financial team I would give the program 5 Stars. A very informative show.

Time for some changes

I've been a Ray Lucia listener for more than a decade, but this summer's format change and transition have been a big disappointment. It seemed to begin with Mr. Lucia's problems with the SEC which ended his career as a financial advisor and severed ties to his own financial planning company. Now the show focuses on a narrow audience of accredited investors. Mr. Lucia seems to evade describing what this means since he certainly knows that this will miss the mark with the majority of listeners to daytime financial talk radio.

Mr. Lucia has also dramatically changed the format of the show, rarely taking live calls from the radio audience. The only listener interface now is a brief e-mail response segment at the end of the show.

Finally, during the summer of 2015 Mr. Lucia significantly reduced his personal participation in the program, turning the responsibility for the "guest interviews" (sponsored segments targeting "accredited investors") over to John "Bam" Ransom. Mr. Ransom is certainly a capable radio personality, but this is the "Ray Lucia" show, and we miss him.

For the record the SEC defines accredited investors like this:

An accredited investor, in the context of a natural person, includes anyone who:
earned income that exceeded $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse) in each of the prior two years, and reasonably expects the same for the current year, OR
has a net worth over $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence).
