Highly recommend

I’m addicted to this daily pill of information. Short but very informative. Great variety of interesting topics. My go to “all finance topics and more” podcast.

I’m a critic

And I find this show very topical and enriching. It’s a daily listen!

Zhu Animal ,

The 10 min podcast can totally be condensed into a 30 sec summary.

Really not a lot of solid contents. When they casually pick a random topic every morning, they stretch it out as long as they can, repeating the same information over and over. My wife and I really listen to it for comedic value.
