Customer Reviews

Easy and enjoyable listening.

My husband and I just listened to several episodes in a row and we were both in agreement (very rare) on how relatable, funny and clever your approach and delivery of information is. We both really enjoy your podcast and I am so happy its something we can listen to, together.
Thank you!

Compressed mics please

I love the content of these podcasts but I nearly always struggle to hear male interviewees over road noise when I’m driving, and that’s with my phone hooked up to my car’s audio system. And my car doesn’t make much road noise. I don’t have this problem with other podcasts. Maybe try adding a compressor to even out the volume a bit?

A great look at NZ finances

A broad range of topics specific to NZ is keeps me coming back to this series. A new completely different topic every pod with plenty of topics suggested by listeners. Francis does a great job in researching and presenting this series.
