Finally - a podcast for our military
Ryan runs a great blog (The Military Wallet) that focuses on military benefits which is a tremendous resource for anyone in the military or anyone considering getting in. I’m sure this podcast will be no different.
Finally, a personal finance podcast for military servicemembers!
I've been reading The Military Wallet for years, and I've enjoyed learning from Ryan. He takes complicated subjects (like the Thrift Savings Plan or VA benefits) and thoroughly explains them in evergreen posts that are updated as the programs evolve.
Now he's doing the same for his podcast audience, with topics that you can listen to on your schedule. I was fortunate enough to be interviewed third in his series, and I enjoyed the discussion. He runs a professional program that delivers small doses of important knowledge with each podcast. Whether you're a new recruit at their first training command, or a military spouse making their third move, or a 25-year servicemember contemplating retirement-- you'll learn something new from each show.
Great show for active military or veterans
Ryan Guina knows his stuff when it comes to financial matters for veterans and active duty military. He's a veteran himself, and has done all the necessary legwork to make doing your finances, navigating military benefits or taking advantage of the GI Bill a piece of cake. Must listen!
