Informative at times; very rookie info other times

What is that terrible screeching sound at the beginning of each podcast?? It started appearing maybe around late December ‘21.

WSJ has a tough task on hand because a lot of young folks are entering the financial world these days, and so WSJ has been releasing some podcasts that offer tips and guidelines for rookies who are learning the ropes of personal finance. That makes some episodes too skippable for those who have been at it financially for years. Sometimes I still listen to those episodes geared towards young folks but I’d prefer each episode to be more deeply informative.

Too short and 1/3 of the episode is ads

Because it is so short, about 1/3 of the episode ends up being an ad. The info is also really just a briefing and only covers a headline with a little more information.

Informative

I really appreciate the piece on IRA to Roth IRA conversion. I will do exactly as advised and convert gradually. Thank you so much.
