Omaha steaks??. I love these podcasts but they are promoting eating trash and junk food. so what is a better message? strong finances or bad diet. says a lot about america. we have a big problem with America eating poorly and I always hear this team talking about eating absolute junk. i will soon be out if I keep hearing them promote eating SAD CRAP diet. it is heart wrenching. fix finances but promote poor health. not good.
