Joshua’s financial parts to his podcasts are extremely in-depth. I listened to hundreds of episodes.However, his views of people not like himself are disturbing. He espouses Christian faith, but does not show Christlike empathy toward people who are not white males. He shows judgment against single mothers, or women needing a divorce. He shows harsh judgment against members of the community who are gay or transgender. He did an entire anti-gay episode. It was weird watching a guy with such a good intellect and thought process pushing himself to do logical loops to not care about all his neighbors. His views toward women are very boxed-in and entrenched. For being a “radical” thinker financially, his societal views are very conservative and not allowing of diverse ideas. Men can go be entrepreneurs, but women need to stay at home to do the Lord’s work. His interview episodes were the highlight, because they allowed in diversity of thought, new perspectives, radical thinking, and playing off of ideas (two heads are better than one.) My husband listened to the Radical Personal Finance episode with the early retired guy in North Carolina, and was like, “why is that one guy so conservative?” Joshua doesn’t value public schools as a place where people get schooling, even if better options exist for his family, for many families the public school is the opportunity to a way up. In the early episodes he valued boats and high rises and a coastal Florida money dream, now he’s moved from that. Joshua talks in-depth, but he’s got a blind spot to not everyone living exactly how he chooses to live life for himself, and lacking empathy and Christlike understanding for poor, women, single mothers, gay members of the community. Even if you dislike the “sin”, love the sinner. Joshua puts a 2 hour podcast out showing his displeasure for everyone not building a conservative lifestyle with one parent working, one parent at home (gender roles assumed.) The podcast is hostile toward women, he inherently views is differently and with different expectations than men. And for it being “radical”, that’s entirely backwards. Only men get freedom of choice and freedom of experimenting in business in his eyes. I like the guy, just wish he’d open his mindset to be more loving and Christlike, to value diversity of opinion and thought like he does financially, when he is so strict and one-size-fits-all in his fundamentalist beliefs.
