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.
