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.
