I subscribed to get better at money management but that is not what this podcast is about. While I haven’t learned how to budget better I have learned a lot about the world and how money ties into everything. It’s FASCINATING and I’m addicted. Apparently I should have been an economist!

I love PM
I don’t know who I like more Kenny Malone or Stacey Vanek Smith, but they’re both great. The show is great and keeps me going at work and in the car.
