Perfect to lull you to sleep at night

No seriously try it. Helps me sleep like a baby. Except when he gets into a bout of bizarrely psychotic sounding ‘laughter’ at his own stories. That laugh is the stuff of nightmares... literally

Has opened my eyes

Listened to his podcast on being able to reach financial independence with multiple children. I loved how thorough, precise, and insightful he was. I want to have multiple children and this podcast has helped me recognize that this is totally possible.

This podcast is not radical

As a young profesional who is neither white or a man, I am very off-put by this podcast. Joshua completely ignores the historical undertones of racial inequality in America and preaches that you are uneducated if you cannot simply build wealth as he was able to. Although I’m positive there is worthwhile financial advice in here, it’s completely lost within his overall ignorance regarding wealth in America that does not regard the white man.

Refreshing and original thought

You can tell he puts a lot of research into his shows and digs deep for something that he can add to the discussion. His self-described super power is “thought taxonomy” which makes his audio so consumable. Keep up the good work Joshua

Always entertaining and informative

I have been listening to this podcast for about 2 years and it has really helped me look at finances in ways that I never would have thought of before. The topics are very diverse and there is not a lot of repetition, which you get with some other podcasts out there. Highly recommended for both younger and experienced investors.

Highly Recommend (Next Level!!)

This podcast is perfect for those that have proceeded beyond the clear and immediate first steps of understanding personal finance. The topics are interesting and well delivered. Joshua Sheets has a unique perspective and offers his insight to many key areas and topics not touched on by others. I appreciate his efforts and listen to this podcast often for new ideas and enjoyable discussion/content.

Excellent Podcast

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.

Creative Personal Finance Podcast with Depth

Joshua’s podcast is original and has substantial depth while still being practical. I can honestly say that this podcast has not only helped me to save money and be frugal it has also helped me to grow my income.

Very informative!

This pod cast covers a huge range of topics. I started from the beginning and found it to be a little bit of a downer (idk why maybe I am just used to the motivation of Dave Ramsey); however, since then I have been jumping around the years of pod casts and picking the topic strings that pertain to me. Joshua has been a huge influence on me! I have been enjoying his interpretation and thought processes of how to live life in balance but focusing on what can make the most difference. Keep it up!

If you know you know.

Top notch financial podcast. Look forward to every episode that is dropped. Especially love the insight, ingenuity, and care he puts into understanding and conveying his different topics. Many are unified and challenge the listen to consider ideas or methodologies most people never thought were possible for them. Thoroughly enjoy his Friday episodes where he opens the line to his listens to ask questions. If your considering listen and investing time in a podcast, look no further. You’ll find yourself looking back through his library in no time to listen to past discussions.

Solid

Joshua thinks outside the box, shares scholarly information and advice from the heart. He’s radical, and I for one, love that.

Passion and inspiration

I have found this podcast through another podcast I was occasionally listening to. Joshua speaks to where I am at in life, he is very passionate and knowledgeable as well inspirational to me. I have just subscribed to his Instagram page-first one I have ever subscribed to, I just don’t follow on Instagram but he has inspired me to action.

Great podcast to keep me on my toes

Radical Personal Finance is a podcast I am constantly challenged by to think about my financial decisions and regularly opens my eyes to things I have overlooked or never even considered. Joshua's insights and advice are thoughtful, principled, and timely.

Personal finance or stewardship?

This is by far my favorite podcast, entertaining, educational, and practical (applicable for anyone and everyone). This podcast coaches people toward being better stewards with their lives, not just their money.

Best actionable finance podcast

Joshua does a great job of providing actionable advice. Not just about personal finance but about overall personal development too. I consider myself well versed in financial topics but Joshua takes different angles outside of mainstream personal financial advice.

This podcast is TOP-NOTCH!

I'm very selective to what I listen to, which is why this podcast is one of my few favorites. If you're looking for mindless chit-chat from imposters, then look elsewhere. But if you want very intelligent advice from an extremely accomplished individual that WILL change your life you've come to the right place.
