Customer ReviewsSee All
YMYW is a great financial podcast and it never grows old. Definitely worthy of 5 stars and more! Andy does a great job keeping Joe and Big Al on track. The show is informative as well as entertaining and the de-rails can’t be missed. I usually listen while I’m walking and it makes the miles go by quickly. Keep up the great work! A loyal listener from Boston.
Great insights in a fun environment
This is the #1 podcast for financial information. Joe and Big Al are to the point while infusing some humor into the subject. Highly recommend.
Best in the biz right now...
Having listened to literally dozens of financial podcasts over the last decade or so, I find this one to be the best of the bunch. Joe comes on a little strong at first like an extra spray of cologne...but boy is he knowledgeable and humorous. :) Al is the perfect straight guy and Andi produces an excellent show. Bravo...👏🏼
