The best!

Love this podcast! To the point, not trying to sell you anything, down to earth, and the “ads” are hilarious! You know how to connect with people. Thanks for the podcast.

Drifting Conversation

This podcast used to have interesting information about personal finance and was also entertaining. Listen to the earlier podcasts and you will notice the difference . Since the COVID pandemic, the podcast seems to be more "off the cuff" and a spontaneous conversation rather than about personal finance. It's evident that the quality of this podcast is not what it used to be.

Finally

I found this podcast after sorting through so many scammy “financial guru” characters. To the point. No inflated ideas of quick or easy. Replies to listeners personally - not just automated OSFA generic info. This is what we (that want to grow) really want to know. Not how to get rich quick. But how to understand money thoroughly to make the best choices.
