Paula Pant is 👎

Stacking Benjamins banter is honestly top notch, unless Paula Pant is on the show. She is the least knowledgeable obstacle on this excellent show. Keep up the excellent work, everyone else. This show helps me plan life finances, Paula can go back to being mean in LaLa Land. Her advice isn’t ever insightful.

Sabbatical

Love the podcast but Paula is out of touch with real families and raising kids.

Patricia Barrow ,

Incredible and Engaging

Incredible, Engaging, and Informative - everything you need in podcast. This is a must listen.
