Love how this podcast gives sound advice instead of making the audience feel like they have to risk it all financially. FIVE STARS.

This is definitely in my Mt. Rushmore of financial podcasts. Paula is very logical and sometimes I think she could be A.I. Haha. But never a dull episode.

I have been listening for a little over a year, but I mostly listen to older episodes because I am a newer listener considering how long this podcast has been going. I was shocked when I heard an ad for Everyplate on a newer episode. I have tried every affordable meal kit service there is and...Read full review »

I just tuned into a podcast that talked about using the value of your home to boost your finances. The talk really opened my eyes to how mixing real estate choices with our financial plans can help us out. It's super helpful, especially if you want to make the most of your money.Read full review »

The best podcast I’ve ever heard. If it wasn’t for the information on this podcast, I’d still be in the dark about money. This podcast has taught me everything I know about how to make better choices, have better friends, think more clearly about my life, and manage my time and investments. I...Read full review »

Paula is one in a million—fiercely intelligent, knowledgeable and an engaging speaker. She is organized and serious, yet keeps a light, personable tone that makes listening and learning a pleasure. Love everything about this podcast.

“You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with” is a frequently quoted Jim Rohn saying and I think that includes people from the media. Paula is an excellent digital mentor to tune into because she prodiminantly focuses on the “How” to make things happen which helps get...Read full review »

Investing made so much sense when you explained it to a 10-Year-Old. Thank you Paula and Joe. 🙌

Afford Anything is a very professionally-done podcast with a wealth of information. Paula Pant is a great host, and she is an excellent speaker with a very nice radio voice! She also is a clear thinker and uses some unique ways of problem solving and decision making.

They want you to “win.” Practical advice for normal people. I’ve learned a lot and feel inspired to keep improving my monetary habits.

Thanks Paula

Hi Paula, I just wanted to take this time to say thank you for creating this podcast. It’s what I’ve been listening to while staying up with my newborn son (not getting much sleep as of late). Previously, I would read a lot of investment and personal finance books in my free time. Listening to...Read full review »

I think Joe’s answers are incomplete at best and wrong at worst. He likes to use buzz words like modern portfolio theory and Sharpe ratio. How is this actionable advice? Why not promote a three fund portfolio instead with risk appropriate allocation. He also likes to repeat that that fees aren’t...Read full review »

I started listing to this podcast for actual relevant financial advice. What is up with your most recent (yawn) episode .

Hi, Paula and Joel, I was featured on a recent episode of Ask Paula. I am FI but hesitate to retire, and you took a good 20 minutes of airtime, walking through both the logistical and psychological impact of early retirement in my case, looking at it through several different angles. Thank you so...Read full review »

Paula was spot on about the controlling father. And this is her podcast. She’s right. Decisions aren’t just mathematical. They are emotional as well.
Andy Pgh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/23
Genuine and not biased. The episode about how to invest in a volatile market is very level headed and one of the best advice I have heard in a decade
malc_sf via Apple Podcasts · Malta · 05/19/23
Paula, I say this with zero exaggeration. Since I started listening to your show in 2016, you are the one person who has made the greatest impact on my financial health. I recommend your show to anybody and everybody. I wish you all the best. You have changed so many lives for the better.
guanonfire via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/23
Listening to Paula, Co-Host, and Guests has been immensely helpful in navigating life’s challenges. From determining ‘kill criteria’ for when to quit to addressing financial concerns associated with layoffs, I feel more confident as I approach future milestones in career and in life Thank you!!
Lee-Aid-Off via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/23
A true value-based podcast! Thanks for sharing non-fluff education about mindset and finances, Paula. From personal finance to how to handle the finance aspect of my business. Giving me a whole lot of different perspective. More power to this show and looking forward to more of your epsiodes.
YourMarketingPartner via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 04/17/23
One of the few podcasts I’ll play for an entire road trip. Paula is a treasure and she is freely giving with her knowledge and advice. You’ll learn a lot while getting some great laughs and lessons for your own life. Shout out to Joe for the great dad jokes.

I have listened to about 10 different finance podcasts and Afford Anything is the one I enjoyed the most and the only one I chose to listen to every single episode from day 1 even though the sound quality is not the best. Her show is so different than others, and every episode is wisdom and...Read full review »

Afford Anything approach to finance highlights the importance of a balance lifestyle. The podcast is more than a finance podcast and a welcome departure from the old financial model of suffering on our way to F.I.R.E.

Very entertaining and educational podcast! Afford Anything is AMAZING!

I’ve been following Paula’s work since she had a blog in 2012, detailing her rental house acquisitions. Since she’s had a podcast, I listen religiously every week.

Your podcast is informative, leads me to think in new ways and I appreciate your review of key points at the end of the show. I find myself saving your episodes because the offer so much value that it cannot be taken in with just one listen! Thank you!

Heard you on the White Coat Investor and loved your thought process. You have verbalized that it’s not just money that has value — it is our time, energy, focus and concentration. There are a lot of podcasts in the finance/personal finance space and so much of it is a repackaging of things we...Read full review »
