I'm a personal finance nerd and was looking for a new podcast. I heard about Stacking Benjamins from Joel on the How To Money podcast. I downloaded an episode and it happened to be the one you guys were on. I never listened to another episode of Stacking Benjamins but I went back to the beginning of yours and listened to every one until I was current. I have a request for a future topic. I hear of Peter talking about growing up in a cult. I'm not sure if he means that literally or if it was more of a overly strict evangelical Christian environment. Regardless, I can relate. I was deeply involved in a conservative evangelical Christian church for many years. I'm now questioning many things and practices that I held for so long. I'm having difficulty getting past the guilt in letting it go and moving on. I would love to hear Peter discuss this topic more if he was comfortable doing so. Keep up the great work! I love the information shared (and the vulnerability in doing so) and the entertaining banter.
