I've been working my way through these solidly s there isn't a weak episode. I like the presenters' style and approach, which is friendly and kind while realistic and evidence based. There are nuggets of tips and recommendations that I've implemented in my own financial management too, and it helps understand other people's feelings about money too. All in all a useful and entertaining podcast.
