Hilarious and insightful

Love the chemistry and the awkwardness. Nice blend of financial questions and pop culture. The TV show descriptions are the best.

Funny & Insightful!

I love that this podcast makes me laugh but is also very insightful and relatable!! 5 stars 👏

Run away

Allison’s voice. She sounds like the kind of woman i would excuse myself from listening to by running in the opposite direction. Sooooo many bleating words that amount to soooo little….other than a headache of course.
