  • Great guest host talks too much
    by brentflog on February 16, 2017 at 2:50 pm

    Title says it all. Listened to theDaniel Crosby episode and I think the host talked more than the guest. I have heard Crosby on other podcasts and this seemed like a self righteous listen to me podcast. […]

  • Amazing show!
    by stego_my_eggo on February 16, 2017 at 2:29 pm

    Joshua, your show has been a huge help to me in my pursuit of financial independence. I love what you're about and hope to meet you at some point in the future. Until then, keep going, keep breaking new ground. You are truly changing lives! […]

    Appreciated your insights into personal safety and the cost/benefit ratio. Better safe than sorry...good reminders! […]

  • This is the podcast other podcasts want to be 🙂
    by Minty1975 on February 7, 2017 at 8:52 pm

    I can't get enough of this podcast. It makes my commute to and from my W2 a little less hateful. Haha. The guests are fun and the topics are engaging. Two thumbs way up for this one. It's one of only a few that has my subscription. Lisa @MadMoneyMonster […]

  • Mr Rambler
    by No.BS. on February 6, 2017 at 1:16 pm

    This guys honestly likes to just talk and talk. He doesn't say much and the density of information is low. He has run out of material ages ago. You can skip through and miss nothing. He should just cut these podcast in half. He would save every one the time including himself. He could moonlight for auditable to make extra money. […]

  • Learn to speak the experts' language
    by Ruha in Alabama on February 1, 2017 at 7:05 pm

    Joshua is empowering listeners with an extremely authoritative position accompanied by a millennial, try-anything attitude and a genuine desire to help anyone willing to learn. If you go through life always having ideas for businesses to fulfill observed needs, but never having a clue where to begin and talking yourself out of trying anything new because of a basic lack of know-how, listen to this podcast. Joshua will teach you where to begin and how to speak the same language as the experts who can help you get going. […]

  • Unique, but unfortunately flawed
    by Songpopperz on February 1, 2017 at 11:47 am

    The Good: interesting topics with a unique perspective. Almost that of an outsiders view on finance. Joshua is right to say everyone's situation is different but then he usually gives some examples and approaches. Good voice and sound quality, lots of personal conviction here. The Bad: I've always believed that some of the nicest and most talented people with much to offer the world are literally disabled by their own bigotry, notions and beliefs about groups of people that were indoctrinated in to them at a young age and from which they have not escaped or questioned. Just realized in the latest episode on refugees that Josh is one of these unfortunate people. Human rights are for everyone Josh. You have freedom of religion, which is not to be confused with freedom to discriminate. Hope you get this cleared up some day. For now looking elsewhere for finance information that is delivered where all are welcome. As another reviewer suggested, will also make a donation to HRC in response. […]

  • Best for the intellectually curious, but useful for others too
    by Frannie1453 on January 23, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    This is a great podcast for those who are extremely intellectually curious and want technical understanding from a practitioner. For those who want to have a 10K ft view or just rules of thumb (or just don't have the time to think of personal finance in that way), it can be long and boring. Personally there are way too many other podcasts/news shows that just give you heuristics so RPF is invaluable to anyone who wants to go 2 or 3 levels deeper. […]

  • Not your average personal finance information
    by BobFlushingMIUSA on January 22, 2017 at 2:55 pm

    Joshua is very experienced and well informed. He covers topics that others don't and he has a unique take. I just skip the podcasts that don't apply to me. Yes, you have to be patient (or listen on x2 like I do) […]

  • great podcast
    by studmuffin1111 on January 21, 2017 at 12:10 pm

    provides alternatives to mainstream issues across all ranges of financial topics. […]

  • Not Your Run of the Mill podcast
    by reminds me of my Prius on January 20, 2017 at 8:54 pm

    I find Joshua's podcast (RPF) totally helpful on more than a financial front. What I mean is: Joshua brings in great guests and discusses financial issues which are great. Joshua also attacks the hard questions such as it is better to roll over an IRA into a Roth? And Joshua is believable because he is quick to state when he has made mistakes, how he made his mistakes & why and how he thinks now. He also gives incredible insights into topics that are out of the ordinary. For example, he discussed how to sleep in your Prius by messing around with the seats. ( I own a Prius and didn't even know this). Joshua is like a male Martha Stewart - he talks about great stuff that we ( some at least ) of us had been wondering about. Joshua is also a religious person & makes it known .... I'm not a believer but that's ok - I just advance the podcast when he discusses religion. Also, some people complain about the length of his podcasts... I actually like that he doesn't appear rushed especially when the guest is stellar. That's all folks !!! […]

  • Inspirational
    by Jon yo on January 20, 2017 at 3:11 pm

    Joshua provides great content and has the ability to bridge the gap between the typical consumer and the financial industry. I like the way he speaks and continue to be inspired. […]

  • Long form Solid financial advice
    by aconn003 on January 20, 2017 at 1:22 pm

    Useful financial information given at a digestible pace. After each episode, I can actually remember and analyze all that was said, then try to incorporate useful bits into my routine. […]

  • Personal Finance Guru!
    by Benjamin Grossbaum on January 17, 2017 at 7:26 am

    Great Podcast! Topics are covered in depth and are very informative. Very interesting content produced every weekday. Host Joshua Sheats demonstrates his competence in every episode when it comes to personal finance, as well as his radical philosophies. […]

  • A Great Podcast
    by GomezLovesAgain on January 16, 2017 at 5:18 pm

    While asking the all-knowing google (small G) for a podcast on finances over a year and a half ago, it wisely directed me to RPF. Thank you Joshua for your hard work to present each episode. The fact that you approach your program from a Christian worldview makes the show sweeter still. Keep it up! […]

  • Highly recommend this podcast
    by Jonesmatr on January 14, 2017 at 11:44 pm

    The best way to learn about a wide range of finance topics. Joshua is very knowledgeable, and does a great job of exploring alternative ideas for managing money. […]

  • Radical Personal Finance
    by Futurepawn on January 14, 2017 at 10:52 am

    Awesome podcast. Very inspirational. Helps keep me on track to financial independence. […]

  • World Class Podcast
    by TypicalMillenial on January 13, 2017 at 12:28 am

    I've been following Joshua for more than a year now, and RPF must be my favorite podcast. I love his analysis, enthusiasm, optimism, depth, sincerity, and smooth voice. He's had very interesting, insightful and esoteric topics that he navigates and explains very well. Some constructive criticism would be 1) To include more of those esoteric lifestyle design topics like ERE and alpha strategy. 2) Refrain from evangelizing personal religious and political beliefs with his financial podcast. I'm ideologically similar to Joshua in both aspects, but those topics don't belong in this podcast. […]

  • Amazing podcast
    by Sarahs637 on January 12, 2017 at 3:24 pm

    So informative. Joshua explores conventional & some off the wall approaches to finances. He often has interesting guests on the podcast and isn't afraid to ask the questions that you really want to know about. He's very direct while still being respectful. Highly recommend […]

  • Exceptional work Joshua!!
    by 98disco on January 11, 2017 at 2:35 pm

    Thank you […]

  • Smart and interesting
    by furbabyvet on January 10, 2017 at 11:41 pm

    I enjoy the variety of subjects covered in this podcast. The host keeps it interesting talking about various aspects of personal finance. The host is intelligent, well spoken, and very informed about the subject matter. He covers so many aspects of life, not just saving and investing money. This podcast always goes to the top of my queue when a new one comes out! […]

  • Great program
    by Trying2SaveUs on January 8, 2017 at 8:33 am

    Always find these useful. Don't know where he finds the time but grateful he does. […]

  • Love this show!
    by PT Money on January 5, 2017 at 9:15 pm

    Joshua is a master of the craft of financial education and podcasting. One of THE BEST SHOWS on the internets hand down. No topic is too much for him to handle and discuss from every angle. Brilliantly exhaustive! […]

  • The best financial podcast
    by Shepherds from NC on January 4, 2017 at 3:50 pm

    Joshua's podcast has been a blessing to my husband and I as we begin our marriage and financial planning for the future. Joshua thoroughly explains his topics and presents the information in an intriguing way that captures your interest. I would recommend this podcasts to anyone. […]

  • Buffet of Financial Information
    by Jamila (JourneyToLaunch.com) on December 26, 2016 at 2:36 pm

    Radical Personal Finance is one of the first podcasts that I started listening to on my journey to Financial Independence. I have a long commute and it was through listening to a lot of his podcast episodes that I began to formulate my plan for escape from my 9-5. I love Joshua's honesty and frankness. There is a wide range of financial information to chose from. I can also tell he puts a lot of effort and research into his episodes which I appreciate. While not all of the episodes relate to me, I love that I can just skip and come back to it when I want. I recommend this podcast to all of my friends and family who ask me about how they get more info on Financial Independence. Jamila (journeytolaunch.com) […]

  • The description sold me
    by Nightcrawler1889 on December 23, 2016 at 12:31 am

    When it comes to financial planning Joshua has everyone beat. Most of his podcasts are in depth, well articulated, and he uses language that most people can grasp. If you're looking for a financial podcast, you should definitely check his out. He even does consulting and with all the knowledge he possesses, it's worth every minute. […]

  • Great insights from Joshua
    by Runner_js on December 22, 2016 at 11:44 am

    I love Joshua's knowledgeable and insightful topics and his detailed advice is helpful and worth listening and one of the best use of time to get financial knowledge. […]

  • Awesome show
    by Superaquatropletmom on December 21, 2016 at 10:00 am

    I listen daily. Deep high quality content ! […]

  • My fave or personal finance
    by J. Ramage on December 20, 2016 at 11:18 am

    My favorite personal finance podcast because Joshua isn't afraid of detail and diving deep into a topic, along with his way of thinking through issues and possible solutions. I agree that sometimes a side trail runs longer than expected, but that openess to ramble a bit is part of what I enjoy vs. a polished show that's designed to fit neatly into some radio time slot. Podcasting is at its best when it's a little rough around the edges 🙂 […]

  • Radical Moderation
    by Cgumpdesign on December 17, 2016 at 10:21 am

    I think Josh provides an incredible service by diving into the meat of tough financial topics. He makes no attempt to hide his views, politically, financially, religiously, or otherwise. But he also makes every attempt to expose intelligent views that differ from his own. I personally support Joshua financially because I love the content. I am very moderate in my views in general. I like being challenged and struggling with big concepts and hard ideas. Joshua is very conservative and very religious and I find his conservative views politically contrasted to his radical financial ideas invigorating. […]

  • All Things Financial
    by BTB1966 on December 17, 2016 at 1:21 am

    Radical Personal Finance is my favorite podcast for all things financial. Joshua Sheets is genuine. Recently he has opened up and has revealed more about his true personality. I find this to be refreshing. His content is extremely varied. He will interview kids who are entrepreneurs to people who became very wealthy and financially independent through non-traditional means. Joshua is a Christian who from all appearances attempts to put the teachings of Christ into practice. This too is very rare in the arena of financial advice, where most people tend to be political correct so not to offend anyone. Don't misunderstand me, Joshua doesn't purposely try to offend anyone, but he does not runaway or hide from his faith in Christ. Radical Personal Finance is not a religious show at all and you don't have to be a Christian to find real value in the topics that Joshua discusses. Joshua Sheets is to the world of financial podcasts as Anthony Bourdain is to the world of culinary cuisine. You're not quit sure what's in store, but you know you will find it interesting and entertaining. […]

  • Excellent
    by Morgian on December 17, 2016 at 12:32 am

  • Great podcast!
    by BrandonA30 on December 16, 2016 at 2:17 pm

    Great podcast! Always a robust explanation of a topic and regularly thinks outside the box. This challenges my thinking and has opened new doors to paths of which I was unaware. I'd highly recommended this podcast! […]

  • Fantastic, insightful information!
    by Debacle Free Zone on December 15, 2016 at 7:00 pm

    I can not say enough good things about this much needed podcast! The podcast goes far beyond the typical personal finance information found elsewhere. Radical personal finance also delves in to unusual, often not discussed ideas for personal finance in addition to taking some deep dives in to more traditional topics. […]

  • Very informative
    by Casey in Florida on December 14, 2016 at 7:01 pm

    Joshua appears to have researched his topics and provides very detailed information on the topics discussed. […]

  • Deep analysis
    by NatSch5 on December 14, 2016 at 12:20 am

    Incredibly in-depth shows on financial topics. I already know a lot about this stuff, but I always learn something new when I listen. […]

  • Great podcast!
    by Jpipercub on December 12, 2016 at 7:37 pm

    I've listened for a couple years now and highly recommend to others as an educational resource. Ideas shared here have helped me consider financial decisions, and better negotiate. Thank you Joshua! […]

  • Thoroughly Reviewed
    by CG_21 on December 11, 2016 at 1:16 pm

    Joshua provides thoroughly reviewed and thought-out content on various financial subjects. Not all of the subjects may apply to your personal situation, but it is interesting to see discussions from both sides of a position. […]

  • My favorite podcast
    by ryotto on December 10, 2016 at 6:07 pm

    I really enjoy listening to Radical Personal Finance. I usually listen to this podcast while I'm at work to better understand money management and investment ideas. I also enjoy the interviews, it helps me realise some of the possibilities that are available in life. I like the wide variety of topics and the depth he goes into them. Sure the episodes can be a little long and repetitive, but I like that. My attention is usually divided while I'm working, so I can absorb the information easier the way he does his episodes. Thank you Joshua for the great content, I'm working my way through all old episodes while waiting on new ones to come out. […]

  • One of my favorite podcasts!
    by Aplap198273 on December 9, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    Podcast covers wide variety of topics including financial but also life philosophy. Josh is well read and smart and offers a fresh perspective on living life well. […]

  • Unique Financial Information.
    by 568.043.190 on December 9, 2016 at 3:46 pm

    This podcast is full of practical, unique financial advice. It is not the same rhetoric that you will hear on other podcasts. Set aside time in your week to listen. Thanks so much Josh! I appreciate your hard work and dedication to providing high quality, accurate information. I never realized how Biblical financial management was. […]

  • Like it
    by redjamin on December 9, 2016 at 2:08 pm

    RPF is a great weekly listen. I am well on my way to FI, but it is a great refresher or reinforcement of things I have already done. I usually grab 2 or 3 good ideas each episode. […]

  • Excellent perspectives
    by AK 2468 on December 9, 2016 at 11:49 am

    Cannot thank Joshua enough for his regular podcast covering a broad topic of personal and business finances principles. He has helped me personally and professionally. Please keep the episodes coming! […]

  • Unmatched content
    by Uhhhh ahhhh on December 9, 2016 at 12:51 am

    Joshua puts together a well thought out show of a very high caliber. I haven't found another financial podcast that comes close to the quality of his content. He tackles the issues others aren't and he isn't afraid to get technical where it helps the conversation. A+++ […]

    Hey I just want to say thank you. I recently finished college with a degree in computer science and was lucky enough to land a job right out of school which is hard these days. I spend my whole college career with little money, basically paycheck to paycheck if that. Now that I have money I didn’t really know what to do with it. I had several loans for school and had zero direction of how to pay them off. I knew I needed to do something with my money besides spend it as it came in (as was my mindset based on necessity from the last 4 years) but I didn’t know how to save, spend, or invest. I spent a lot of time researching and reading but I really wasn’t looking in the right places. After discovering your podcast and following your suggestions I am a lot more confident about my money and have a consistently evolving plan to become financially independent. Thank you so much for all that you are doing. It’s been so enlightening and I don’t think I could say I am where I am without your help. Sorry if my formatting and grammar is off I’m typing this on my cellphone.

    After listening to your show, you inspired me to change my life. All the shows on early retirement lead me to quit my local truck driving job, and go over the road. I have cut my expenses to almost nothing, and have managed to pay off 7,000 dollars of debt in three months.
    Before I discovered your show it looked like I would never get out of debt. I still have a ways to go, but At this rate I will be debt free in 6 more months.
    You have truly changed my life, thank you so much.
