A Word About Wealth Podcast
About This Show
We are “A Word About Wealth”, a podcast about delivering financial entertainment by tackling the often complex world of finance. We subscribe to a simple philosophy - K.I.S.S. it. Keep. It. Simple. Stupid.
If you're like us, finance isn't the easiest topic to understand. There is an ocean of financial terms, a bunch of opinions on how to best manage wealth and not enough folks explaining what the heck this all means.
This is why we started A Word About Wealth. We wanted a place where we could talk casually about finance, ask and answer any questions on our mind and keep it simple (stupid). =)

Entertaining, Witty, and Applicable to My Life
I listen to their episodes on my commute to work, and I love love love this podcast! Van and Kevin are such entertaining hosts, and it's fun to listen to two friends (brother-in-laws) banter and tease each other, while still sharing crucial financial information. I feel like facts about 401k, buying homes, and investing pre-tax dollars are so difficult, dull, and boring to digest in a sea of confusing vocabulary that I have always tried to avoid it. However, Kevin asks the best questions (that I want to ask myself), and Van does an amazing job of breaking down hard-to-understand finance terms in a way that anyone can understand using real-life examples. I have made some changes already to the way I save and invest, and their easy-to-listen-to style of sharing information has also encouraged me to embrace personal finance and do some more research on it too. They've showed me that personal finance is not some crazy hard thing that I will never understand. Thanks so much, Van and Kevin! Keep up the amazing work!
