This podcast has totally changed our lives! When covid hit, my husband and I found ourselves with cut hours at work, reduced income, a tenant who was unable to pay rent, and severe anxiety over our finances. After listening to ChooseFI, we took control of our financial lives and are in a much...Read full review »

Don’t be normal, Choose FI! This show has changed my financial outlook tremendously. Jonathan and Brad do an amazing job of outlining the basics of FIRE and you are constantly learning different perspectives from their guests - not only the “experts” but regular people who have achieved financial...Read full review »

If you are interested in pursuing a dream of financial freedom - no more job, boss or responsibilities or just want to improve your financial situation, this is the #1 podcast to listen to. The hosts are down to earth and easy to follow and they make learning fun. I love this show! Andy...Read full review »

I’ve listed for well over a year — all episodes up to current — and learned some things along the way. Over the past couple months, there has been a parade of “other” speakers and a growing number of advertisements (veiled as advise supported by Brad & Jonathan). The show has lost me. I...Read full review »

I have been listening to this podcast for a week now! I have binged the majority of these episodes because what Jonathan and Brad teach resonate with me in a very deep way! I have always aspired to be a minimalist! I can’t wait to take these hacks and continue my journey to FI and a life where I...Read full review »

Love the show . Sometimes I get lost or feel FOMO with some of the transitions and segues. It feels like you need to have listened to a previous episode to understand the context of this episode. But other than that great content!

Annoyed by the commercials now

Just a quick review from me to say thanks so much for producing this great podcast. It’s packed full of practical information and I find it really helps me keep on the straight and narrow. Discovering the FI concept has been life changing in all aspects of my life and this podcast just helps me...Read full review »

I never miss an episode. Although, sometimes I FF in the Roundups. Lots of rehashing needlessly. I’ve learned a LOT and best I can tell, we are on the path to FI.
TimS402 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/24/20
I’ve been listening to your podcast for over a year now. I love the concept of FI and enjoy listening to all the different ways people have approached it. When I first started listening, as a lowly grad student, I said “when I get a real job I’ll...”. Blah blah blah, excuses. Well life happens...Read full review »

Early podcasts were wonderful concepts and ideas to FI. Recently, they have personal stories of people I don’t relate to. I skip these episodes and don’t know if they anything else to the fi community.

I have been listening to Brad and Jonathan on my commute and in my free time for about a year now. I’m on episode 146 so I have a long way to go. I learn something from every episode and it helps me keep my finances in line. I am 29, a natural saver and I had about 50% of my undergrad and grad...Read full review »

Love the show. The content and the topics covered give you the knowledge to live the life you want. Over the past several months, 3-5 ads (“show sponsors”) have been placed into the show that kill the momentum.
JT from Missorui via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/20
A real easy podcast that’s relatable to daily life.
KPGrill via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/11/20
I tell everyone to listen to these podcasts and try something different and new. Always learn, take what matters and apply it to the life you are creating for yourself and your family. Be “intentional” about creating a life instead of just drifting through it. Bravo!
MomshipNow via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/20
Part of FI is spending your time wisely—or at least spending it as you’d like. I don’t want to spend my time listening to ads about other people’s books, personal anecdotes and pet projects.

Have learned so much about personal finance. 10/10
SW_506 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/20
Brad is always doing "excellent" even during a pandemic. Some useful old episodes are probably worth re-airing vs newer released episodes. Turned off that majority of guests do not even think about giving back to the community or charitable in anyway. Show has morphed to just push...Read full review »

This podcast was great. Started listening in June 2019 and binged through all the old episodes. Lately, this podcast has been declining with the addition of ads that began as an occasional recommendation of a products they used along affiliate links if you wanted to support them, but has quickly...Read full review »

This is a great podcast. I’ve learned so much. My husband and I started the Dave Ramsey baby steps several years ago and got all debt paid off except house. Been saving but just felt like we needed to do more. Learned about FI and started listening to different podcast. Came across this one...Read full review »

I used to listen to all fitness podcasts on my long runs, well now it’s also fitness but financial freedom fitness. Finally improving my overall experience with money !!

I graduated from Dave Ramsey baby steps to the choose F.I. Community. I have completely changed my financial lifestyles.Even with the pandemic. I have been able too create a frugal lifestyle with out stress bc I’ve followed Brad and Johnathan.
rmartinez722 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/29/20
An awesome podcast for anyone to has access to money. Don’t be fooled by the porn theme song, it is not that kind of show.
The a better via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/28/20
This concept is presented in such an actionable way. The topics are life changing, and I think everyone could learn something from these episodes.
OxfordStyle via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/28/20
This is indeed one of the best and go to podcast for personal finance and financial independence. I am starting my FI journey, however, never liked the common reason of hating 9-5 job and therefore retire early. This Podcast introduces me to right concepts of gaining FI so I can do more of what I...Read full review »

I love this podcast! Brad and Jonathan are so well-spoken, informative, and motivational. Each episode is different and gives you knowledge on financial literacy. I like how they talk about all the different ways to improve your life including: diet, exercise, mindset, budgeting, investing, and...Read full review »

The earlier in your life you listen to this podcast, the better! Design the life you want with Brad and Jonathan.
AnnieB14MN via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/26/20
“I love listening to intrusive ads in my podcasts—said no one ever!” This new format is incredibly frustrating. Is it really worth the extra money for the annoyance to your listeners? Please move them to the beginning or end so people can skip them. Every other sentence is “go to this link” or...Read full review »

I just found this podcast, and love it! I like the resources they provide. It’s good that they give small tasks to complete to start making progress towards each goal.
Learning in WV via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/20/20
Hands down the most actionable life-changing show out there. Not only do I love what Brad and Jonathan teach about personal finance, but the tips regarding life optimization are truly invaluable! Since becoming a die hard listener a couple months back, I’ve started blogging about my wife and my...Read full review »

I don’t find this as helpful or informative as I once did. I think they may have run out of new things to discuss.

I have listened regularly for two years and enjoy the podcast. The provided information is very useful and I appreciate how the Choose FI team pivoted during the pandemic in order to provide more timely information to listeners. I know some dislike the few ad spots in the recent episodes, but I...Read full review »

Hi Brad, Jonathan, and everyone else at ChooseFI, I will just come out and say it: Words cannot express how much this show has changed my life (which I am sure you hear all the time at this point!). After paying off $40,000ish of student loans in 16 months Dave Ramsey style, I was in a rut. I...Read full review »
6thTeacher via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/14/20
I can't really deal with the hosts anymore. Both are very smart, but just gigantic nerds. I skip the first 10-15 min of every ep just to avoid hearing about their lives. I JDGAF. Info was good but as time has gone on I find myself skipping more and more episodes.Read full review »

I was recommended this podcast by a colleague. I love the vast knowledge regarding finances and that anyone in any level of their financial journey can listen to. I had the basic principles down but wasn’t really following them. This kicked my butt into gear and I REALLY LOVED learning about...Read full review »
alliegator011 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/20
I listen often and the only reason I don’t give 5 stars is sadly I have to turn it off sometimes because brad does not have a good podcast voice.
jfabooski via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/20
These guys know what they are talking about and are spreading a great message!
John E Bravo 1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/04/20
Love this podcast! Always learning something new. Very informative.
Jetsettinggal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/20
Been listening to this postcast for about 6 months. Some great information and knowledge is imparted, and is helping me get to FI much much sooner. Keep up the great work, and thank you for everything you do!!!
SammySamSamSam12321 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/20
I have been listening to ChooseFi since November 2018 and it has changed the trajectory of my life. It is a comprehensive overview of FI with a positive outlook. There is no shaming or aloofness here. Brad and Jonathan make an awesome team and I love how they balance each other out and help each...Read full review »
varghess89 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/20
This is a great podcast! I really appreciate the tips and information they provide regarding their experiences. The idea of crowdsourcing answers is a great way to share ideas and advance to FI. Keep it up!
dockwalker824 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/20
Definitely one of my favorite shows to keep up with regularly!
JLewisC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/23/20
I’ve been binge listening to all the prior episodes the last month and a half along with the new ones as they come out and these two are amazing. The information they are giving out is real and actionable. For the people in the reviews complaining about a 1 minute ad, get over it. These guys bust...Read full review »

Turned to commercialized and liberal. Early episodes are great. Trying to be bigger than they are. Liberalism is a mental disorder.
bamatrader via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/20
My husband and I are well on our way to FI (financial independence). But early on, I was looking for a podcast that we might enjoy listening to together to help motivate us, and I decided to give this one a try. I am so glad that I did! We are both really enjoying listening to the wide variety of...Read full review »

It’s an informative podcast that provides the right level of information with an inspiring message that FI is achievable.
I'm only so open minded via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/07/20
If Jonathan doesn’t talk about his 168K in student loan debt, Brad doesn’t talk about Anna or Mollie or swim or how he’s doing quite well then there is something wrong with the episode. Also do yourself a favor and listen at 1.5 if not 2 times speed. Brad is a SLOW talker who has to break...Read full review »

The cadence of this couple was distracting. When did Americans start sounding Australian?
