Unfortunately, I think Alan had lost his way, heavily influenced by The New Daily culture, the Unions and MMT. Love James independent analysis.

Still good but not as good as having James and Alan together

Great to have Roger M on the podcast! He brings a broad knowledge & a quiet intelligence to his commentary on finance and it’s always interesting to hear his take on the present situation & his understanding of where markets and individual stocks are heading.

I used to enjoy the banter between these two and the counterpoints provided by differing views. Now as it is engulfed by The Australian very concerned will change for the worse as know diverse opinion not encouraged.

A very informative and entertaining weekly financial podcast that often has some outstanding guests. Great show.
Francis Sinclair via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/09/21
Sad to see you two depart your ways. Still enjoying this show and the other one.
Ms Madshus via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/02/21
I find the show interesting but listening while driving, the guest was about twice as loud as the host. So when the host mumbles something (directional mike??) I turn up the sound only to be absolutely blasted by the clearer louder sound from the guest!! Please have the host use a mike that works...Read full review »

Hi I am a 40 year corporate female with a high income and multiple investments. I thought I would be your target market but today’s show featured an ad for Love and Rockets (a Brisbane strip club). Really?? Who thought that was good marketing?!

Sad to see it happen, but it means getting a double treat every Thursday.

Alan Kohler has his own Money Cafe Eureka Report. Follow it! It’s great. Better than these right wing nut jobs.

I get a lot of time to listen to podcasts in my job, driving around, fixing machines etc. And this is always one of the highlights of the week. The tone is pretty jovial and listeners have plenty of chance to get involved. They seem to just want the best outcomes for the common man.

Listen to this pod every week and loyal listener

I love the banter between Alan and James and very informative podcast. Great caliber of guests too to navigate finance
Saschajadehealy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/01/21
I really appreciate your comments and wealth of experience. Your friendship makes for a fun podcast and thanks for sharing your time with your listeners.
Penquok via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/30/21
... please don’t talk with food in your mouth, Alan. Seriously unpleasant.
J pacer via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/05/21
I preferred the Covid editions without the background noise. Otherwise it’s a great listen.
Amy in Aus via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/04/21
I listened to your podcast the other day and have to say I disagree with your approach to TPD and Income Protection. As a beneficiary of both I might be a tad biased. I agree that not all insurance is the same and you shouldn’t just run with any insurance you are given under a policy selected by...Read full review »

Welcome back gents! It’s good to know that you’re back and ready for the new year, however it was disappointing to find out that your production values were still on holidays! The sound quality of this episode, particularly James input, meant it was almost impossible to hear the questions and...Read full review »

Insightful discussions and great info. Even for the novice investor.
Adamdot78 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/02/20
These guys a quite disconnect from reality and need to actually read and prepare for the listener questions they air on this show. Not only to accurately answer the question but to look like they have an idea of some basic information about investments.
NiknameSlreadyTaken via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/27/20
This started ok but it is fast getting worse. The seem to have very little prep and spend half the time trying to be funny and the other half confused about what the question from the listener is about. Im tuning out. A far better podcast is the livewire podcast "The rules of Investing"...Read full review »

Great, rational, entertaining insights by Alan Kohler. The best, realistic insights on the Australian economy. Mr Kirby is quite right wing, and a little narrow minded in his approach and views, but I love his ability to relate this back to investments.
TheRetirementBlueprint via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/02/20
My wife and I spend most Thursday evenings discussing each week’s show. Educational and entertaining at the same time, the highlight is the banter between the hosts. Most of all I appreciate that the James and Alan are prepared to admit no one really knows what the hell is actually going on at...Read full review »

Excellent weekly content.
roc260 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/22/20
....and is taking a break, probably trying to do too much but this doesn’t seem to have fazed kirby. all the guests he has had on since have been top shelf and the “forward slash” podcasts are brilliant.
Pouchbastard via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/14/20
Love the content but finding it hard to listen to with the poor audio quality. The guest speaker audio is usually worse - volume differences, muffled etc
0arb0011 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/13/20
Fantastic podcast from a team that complement each other brilliantly. Simple, easy to understand, no nonsense stuff. This is a must listen to weekly podcast that has something for everyone.
RG-Haunis via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/23/20
Excellent podcast- A refreshingly honest, straight talking podcast not afraid to give an opinion in an industry that loves to complicate things.
Colbeaslylovechild via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/17/20
Such invaluable content pitted against background noise that’s impossible to ignore for even the most talented multitasker
perjotrust via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/10/20
Only thing worse that a financial adviser is a journalist who charades as a financial adviser hiding behind general advice warnings. If you listened to Alan you would have been sitting in cash for months while market recovers - all care and no responsibility or accountability.
Bewicks Bombers via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/03/20
My fav as an Aussie stockmarket magazine show.
DexterFromPerfectMatch via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/20
A great wrap up of the issues running around the Australian business network each week with a very humorous take on the issues. Keep it up guys! Best listened to at 1/2 speed.

How hard is it to actually read the questions prior to the podcast? It's embarrassing to listen to 2 "financial" people muddle their way through answering questions or just say they don't know. A basically example is not knowing what happens to leftover funds from a DRP SchemeRead full review »
Deliveroo is better via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/23/20
Good podcast if you enjoy listening to chatter from non financially trained journalists. Would think James and Alan would put a bit of time in prior to the show doing some research on the questions which subscribers ask rather thank just saying, well I'm not sure how about you James...Read full review »

Started off okay, but has seriously declined over last 12 months. Alan and Kirby spend half the time providing information that is factually incorrect. Little bit scary given their position in the public eye. But.. in saying that, I’ll keep listing, just to make sure I do the opposite of...Read full review »

Alan is an experienced & knowledgeably commentator - always worth listening to. James constantly interrupts Alan but has nothing of interest to say. Change the format - Alan & guest. Worked very well a couple of weeks ago.
Alanista via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/04/20
These two blokes are among the most knowledgeable in the game, but they are not, nor do they profess to be, tipsters. Alan’s catch phrase is ‘Who knows?’ Answer: Nobody. I find it very interesting and for me, it’s fun to try to read between the lines.
Geoff Ph via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/26/20
These guys are great for updating on market news but they really shouldn’t answer listener questions! They are literally as good as asking any person off the street, not sure why people are getting advice if them! See someone who has studied finances especially personal finances!! Please please...Read full review »

I really like the style of delivery from two professionals who have a chat about what is currently happening in the Financial world. It reminds me of half earwiging conversations in the Cheshire Cheese bar in the 90’s. ☕️☘️ 🍺
owhimsey via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/12/20
Enjoy catching up every week. Friendly banter between Alan and James.

Guys You suggested a migrant retiree approach an accountant to get advice about whether or not he can contribute to super.

Very entertaining. Like all financial commentators their advice is as roughly as sound as rolling a dice but they make it sound believable.
monsoonman1968 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/27/20
Educational podcast peppered with humour. A great way for intermediate investors to learn and keep up with the weeks movements without being bored senseless.
sssopo via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/09/20
As the title says, best Aus economics podcast out there. Informative, entertaining, no shortage of good banter between the hosts, only wish each episode was slightly longer! One can dream Check these guys out
JKB202091 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/07/20
James and Alan are sharp and funny and very, very knowledgeable about financial and investment matters. I have learned so much from following this podcast. It would be great to have an intelligent and broadcast-worthy question but alas, I do not.
Mavis Mae via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/06/20
Good content but ruined by background noise, smashing dishes, scraping chairs, crowd noise in the background. This makes this generally good content very hard to listen to. Guys: your cafe environment is neither cool nor cute. It is annoying! My wife made me turn it off the other day in the car....Read full review »
