Very informative

2nd Update: I was excited this morning when I saw a new episode pop up, then I was immediately sad and in disbelief when I read the title. 😔Thanks Arlington for all the laughs and great advice. RIP Arlington AKA “A Love”.

Update: I like Karen’s silly energy. I do miss A. Love (A. Forbes). There was great chemistry between him and Shaun.

Matt completely ruined the debate episode about is America great. He was yelling over everyone and getting triggered off any point that anyone made. Everyone else could hardly finish a sentence without Matt screaming and cutting them off. We hardly got to hear Dion, and A love had to tell Matt I don’t want to argue with you anymore. Hope Matt takes the day off for the next debate.

Original comment: I love the show, but I hate that they keep posting old episodes. I have my setting on auto download, and I hate when I get notified of a new episodes when it’s just a repost. The old episodes are still there to listen, so there is no need to repost them again and again.

Bad credit? No prob 2BGs has your back!

Been listening to the podcast for a year now. I love what Shaun and the gang are up to. Highly recommend checking out the balance transfer card episode. I'm up to a 750 now from what I've implemented. Guess I'm officially a black guy with GOOD credit...

Mr bab ,

Drop Karen

The addition of the white girl is a big loss!

Why talk about sexual identity and pride month on an episode about tips for MEN!?

Why brag about not having work ethic at a job? White privilege much?

Just bring back the woman with the data.
