Money might be for all of us, but this podcast is not

“Money for the Rest of Us” is a weekly personal finance and investment podcast hosted by David Stein. With over 250 episodes, “Money for the Rest of Us” serves as a source to get in-depth information about personal finance to its listeners.

Stein claims that the podcast is all about “money, how it works, how to invest it and how to live without worrying about it,” during the intro. 

The personal financial advice in “Money for the Rest of Us” is more detailed and specialized compared to most of the other personal finance podcasts on the market, which choose to have shorter and simpler content. 

The podcast’s episodes are usually around 30 minutes long and they are tailored for more advanced audiences that already have some knowledge about investing and different financial sectors. 

Yet, the podcast makes it easier to understand these complex concepts and terms by explaining them in detail. 

The content is well-researched and the podcast succeeds in explaining complicated financial situations. Stein sometimes gives insight shaped by his personal experiences and refers to those experiences as examples. 

Even though “Money for the Rest of Us” sets a good example as a personal finance podcast content-wise, Stein’s narrative is not exactly entertaining or
capturing unless the audience is interested in the topics he is talking about.

 His tone while speaking, mixed with a few pauses in his speech, makes most of the episodes less coherent in comparison to similar podcasts.

The themes of the episodes
differ from general to personalized, with the most recent topics covering personal investors. 

Examples of episodes include, “How to Better Manage Risk,” “Invest like a Tesla,” “Will Artificial
Intelligence (AI) Change Investing?,” ''Should You Invest in India?”
and “Is College Worth It?”

“Money for the Rest of Us” mostly focuses on investing and saving while also concentrating a lot on how bigger-scale economies affect personal finance. 

Alongside these topics, the podcast tackles very basic personal financial problems and offers advice on ways to improve financial decisions.

In addition to “Money for the Rest of Us,” Stein offers various additional resources on his website, www.moneyfortherestofus.com. 

There is a free e-newsletter called the Insider’s Guide for those who do not want to spend half an hour listening to episodes and prefer getting news delivered to their inbox.
