Today we interview Ms. ZiYou from across the pond! We hit on travel, the beauty tax, why Mr. CTF deserves a scolding, retiring on a million, and how she ended up owning a home at 19 years old. She's one smart cookie, so listen up!
Today we interview Raj. If you're sitting here wondering who the hell that is, that's probably because he's just a normal guy--no blog, no podcast. He provides interesting insight as he's lived in both India and the US. We also chat about how he found out about FI, and his experience with learning to navigate the stock market and retirement system. We also get into the discussion of optimizing for happiness versus optimizing for FI. Enjoy!
You can find Raj at firstname.lastname@example.org
This week we bring your 4 FI couples across the US (literally we hit every time zone in the contiguous states) to discuss a variety of topics. Mr. & Mrs. Groovy, My Sons Father & Mother, Mr. & Mrs. WoW join us today. We hit too many topics to actually list them here. Just listen up and enjoy!
Mr. & Mrs. Groovy can be found at: freedomisgroovy.com and @FreedomIsGroovy
My Sons Father & Mother can be found at: www.mysonsfather.com and @My_Sons_Father and @my_sons_mother

If you're feeling down about a terrible decision that you've made in the past, take a listen to this. Mr. and Mrs. CTF have done egregious things with cars. We also have the ridiculous personal finance news of the week with the $1 million student loan guy. Check out the blog for more details on all of the cars. *drops head in shame*
Today we interview Jim from Route to Retire. He's about 18 months away from retiring, so we had lots of questions!
He knows more about social media than Mr. and Mrs. CTF combined. Check him out!
Today we interview Mr. and Mrs. WoW. It's a very conversational episode with a wide variety of topics and lots of tangents. An attempt at a summary:
In case you're curious, the "interesting" count ended at 12.
Apologies for the cat this episode.
Our go fund me account: gofundyourself
@my_sons_father and @financialpanthe are both great bloggers, which is why Mrs. CTF couldn't remember which one wrote this post (or it was the cold meds).
Warning: this show might piss you off and there's a bit more swears than usual.
Today we take on what FI Twitter is warring about these days: privilege or lack their of. Takeaways:
Mr. CTF says if we pissed you off, come at him on Twitter ;)
