Published regularly, helpful advice. Among the best personal finance podcasts available.
One of the other reviewers has a good point about the narrator: his voice is a little over-the-top "radio announcer." Some of the audio sounds like the alarm clock at the beginning are a bit annoying, as is the relentless Range Rover advertisement. The content's so-so and once in a while they'll have a jem, but on the whole it's a tad boring and uninteresting. Try it out and unsubscribe if it's not your piece of cake.
Good advice but...
The guy that reads the news has the most annoying voice in the history of the Internet. It's like a throw back of everything wrong with disk jockeys of the early 80s and I rarely make it through the entire show because of him.
