When I need a happy place..I come here..

Allison and Chris have such a great banter back and forth, that I can listen, giggle, and just take a breather from my day. I don’t come to this podcast to look for financial secrets (I follow their other sites for that), I come here to listen to awkward situations (some that I can totally relate to) and just laugh. Listening to Allison and Chris is like listening to good friends who you can totally relate with. From their own personal situations to listener’s questions/messages to things they love, it leaves me happy and smiling. I listen to their podcasts as I go into work early morning and it makes my time go so quickly. Thank you for bringing some joy into my day. Brings my anxiety of being at work so much better.

The Hilarious Money-Focused Podcast You NEED IN YOUR LIFE RN!!

I’m not a newbie to Allison and Chris. In fact, you could even call me a fan. I’ve loved their other content (Popcorn Finance podcast and Inspired Budget) for a while, especially the episodes on PF and other collaborations they’ve done before.

BUT YOU GUYS THIS IS JUST SO FUNNY, SO REAL, SO DANG GOOD. They make me laugh out loud when I’m walking my dog in the neighborhood so I look like a total weirdo...and I’m OK with it.

The thing is, while the banter is TOP NOTCH and truly so funny, they cover seriously awkward stuff that is SO VALUABLE to have people hash out. Like the intricacies of these weird situations that we so often find ourselves in. SO HELPFUL.

Anyway, I’m eagerly awaiting the next episode. I hope this podcast is here to stay!

10/10 would recommend!!
