Entertaining Financial Advice? This Is It!
Tuesday is the day Your Money Your Wealth downloads to my podcast feed, usually around 10:00 am EST. Why am I fixed on this day and time? Because I really look forward to it—in a way that I can’t say applies to any other podcast (though I listen to lots). Joe, Al, and Andi are a great team, and their willingness to answer complex financial questions from listeners (sometimes long-winded, which Joe might complain about, though he’ll answer anyway) is remarkable. Every episode is filled with information, and there are show notes posted on the show’s website that are extremely helpful to read over if there’s an super-detailed discussion. And all this is actually entertaining, not dry and never boring. If you don’t laugh out loud once or twice per podcast, and smile even more, then you must be having a very bad day. Listen, learn, and laugh!
Educational and humorous
Let’s make this 52 five-star reviews! Joe, Big Al and Andi make a great team that presents financial education in an easy-to-understand manner. It is humorous, so it keeps your attention. There is nothing dry about their presentation. I think it is the best retirement podcast by far. Keep up the good work.
