"ChooseFI is a podcast providing comprehensive analysis, practical tactics, strategies, and interviews all focusing on financial independence. While many podcasts cover financial independence and retiring early, I have yet to find one that goes into the “nitty gritty” and lays out a roadmap in such an incredibly accessible way."
"Brad and Jonathan are wonderful hosts and work off each other beautifully. They ask all the questions I would ask myself and they tie in themes from multiple shows to drive home concepts.They are very caring people and treat guests with the utmost respect."
"For a show about a specific topic such as FIRE it is very applicable to personal finance in general. It provides actionable items but also looks into the personal behavior side of things."
"Brad and Jonathan have great guests! I also love that they have one episode with the guest and another analyzing it each week. The Friday followup gives them the perfect opportunity to expand on anything that may have been confusing, incorrect, or just not discussed in enough depth on the Monday episode."
