Great examples to explain the concepts...

I really enjoyed this series. It tackles those awkward things about money we really don’t like talking about. Real life examples that I could connect with and wasnt preachy about things. Until...the last episode about death & life insurance let this series down. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen the financial burden life insurance can do to someone (come on it’s insurance...and unless you die...you’re losing $$$), I felt like the last episode was pushing life insurance as a miracle product. It doesn’t give enough explanation about its risks & what it really involves.

I loved this.

the social spending episode was my favorite as I recently made the difficult decision to decline the invite to one of my dearest friend's hens party due to the $500 price tag attached to it. this episode put into words everything I had been feeling but didn't know how to articulate

Sound financial advice

Well written and narrated. Easy to listen to.
Slightly UK focussed but still good advice, broken up into sensible chapters.
