needs to get the details right

Love the overall message but there are significant errors in the advice given - an after tax 401k contribution is NOT the same thing as a Roth 401k contribution and there are significant tax consequences for mixing them up. I’m amazed they don’t have a specialist on staff to verify the advice given is actually correct

It seems like the purpose of his podcast now is to sell his new book. I’ve given him 5 chances listing and each time, most of the podcast he speaks on the book or his website. It has become an advertisement podcast

I truly enjoy listening to Chris Hogan, every time his show encourages me to focus on my money and inspires me to become an Everyday Millionaire! Thank you Chris for sharing your knowledge with us and being our coach!

Pseudo expert

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Good motivation to encourage folks to save. Lack of practical investing and discussion. Just points to their Smartvestor pros. You will not glean anything new from these episodes. Rarely goes into detail about investing. Sometimes Chris is incorrect on simple facts. He once called ETFs electronically traded funds

Almost Like Chris Better Than Dave!

I’ve been a follower of Dave Ramsey for years. It’s very interesting to see how Dave’s message has expanded without Dave being the face of the brand. Chris Hogan is a big favorite of mine! I almost like him better than Dave 😂 I really wish they would come out with new episodes more often!

As an avid listener of The Dave Ramsey show, I was looking forward to this podcast as I am becoming more intentional with my retirement and personal finance. The listeners questions are similar to the ones I have and I only get disappointed when Chris gives his standard response with an emotional answer and for the listener to contact a smartvestor pro. There is no clear answer that he gives! This podcast is just an advertisement for his smartvestor pros.

Great Financial Podcast for All

Chris is great for financial wisdom, no matter what your life situation is. He brings an energy and enthusiasm that isn’t found anywhere else in financial podcasts. He is not only a financial expert, but also a teacher, encourager and entertainer. The music selection on the podcast is also top notch.

Lots of talk no action

by Finnaly something that works on Dec 12, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

This podcast is good to listen for motivation but motivation doesn’t lead to action and this podcast only guides you to call a vester-pro. I would like to know more about investing. I don’t know anything and telling me stories about his life doesn’t work. In the 12 episodes I have listen only twice does he take calls. When he answered email they are mostly answered with a (what feels to me) unrelated story. Once he has a guest to answer questions but he did all the speaking. He also has guest share their millionaire story and then he simplifies it, as if we are dumb and don’t understand. The points are simple i get it. Stay focus but what if you don’t even know where to start to stay focus.

What I love about Chris is his ability to relate financial behaviors to real life situations. Hits home every time and always provides great analogies. Thanks, Chris, for all that you do!!

If you need motivation, listen to Chris Hogan. If you want to know what to do when the rubber meets the road, listen to Dave Ramsey.

Lacks Substance

by dsacorn1 on May 25, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I enjoy listening to Dave Ramsey, and was hoping this would also be a great podcast. Chris has great energy and enthusiasm, but the podcast lacks any real substance. The podcast in a nutshell: save for retirement. Not much more than that. The podcast reminds me of when I was in school, and tried filling essays with useless fluff, just to get enough words on the page. He has a lot to say, but not much of real value, episode after episode.

Good Show

by Paco Sr. on May 08, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

I love Chris Hogan's book "Retire Inspired". I like his show, not as much as Dave's but still good. He sometimes acts more like a motivational coach instead of an educational coach. Still really like him.

Very little helpful information.

by Summerbrees on May 03, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I found the podcasts short on specific, helpful information, but long on cliches. More life coach than detailed planning.

Very Motivating

by Miss Boo Boo Dog on May 01, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

All in all, a very solid podcast. Some episodes are five stars and some are three stars, but Chris is always to the point, and presents information in a way that everyone can understand. I wish I had heard something like this 30 years ago; I would have made fewer financial mistakes.

Must listen!!

Chris Hogan puts out the same game plan as Dave Ramsey, but does with a voice as smooth as butter.This show has a good level of energy and does not disappoint. I've come to enjoy listening to Chris Hogan more than Dave...

Congratulations on 1 million plays!

by Shorti Kool on Jan 19, 2017

This is an awesome podcast and it never fails to inspire, which is probably the point. Chris makes you believe you can achieve what you think to be impossible. I wish it aired more than once every two weeks. The one millionth play episode was fantastic! Dave the producer wrote an amazing song that should actually become the podcast's intro and exit/theme song. Keep doing what you do guys, "you were made for this!"

Great podcast!

Missing practical tips

by Ademel08 on Nov 30, 2016
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I'm a huge fan of Dave Ramsey and now that I'm done paying off my debt I was looking for a new podcast to help give me the tips that Dave Ramsey's show gave me. I dislike the lack of practical tips and guidance that this podcast provides. Unfortunately now that I've paid off my debt I feel like some of the questions with Dave Ramsey's podcast are a little redundant, unfortunately this podcast just doesn't do it for me and doesn't seem to fill the void or answer my doubts in the same way. Sorry Chris! :(

Very Motivational!

by samorris74 on Nov 14, 2016
Rating: ★★★★☆

Chris Hogan is very good at getting you pumped up to save for retirement. I love listening to his voice and he has a manner of speaking which is entertaining. That being said, I lose focus from time to time listening to this podcast because I personally find it heavy on the motivation and a little light on the investment details. Issues are dealt with in a very broad manner and where other shows may delve into the specifics, Chris often recommends contacting an Investing ELP. This show is good and will definitely get you motivated to save for retirement.

I have been waiting for this!

After hearing Chris Hogan on the Dave Ramsey show I was immediately interested in the Retired Inspired podcast. Chris has great energy, words of wisdom, and I really enjoy his humor. I get anxious between podcasts because I can't wait to listen to the next one. Thanks for all the advice and motivation. Keep up the great work Chris!

Chris is a passionate man and a good man. However this podcast is 100% motivational and lacks any kind of deeper investing or retirement content. I am already a very motivated investor. I don't need the raw raw stuff. I wish there was more deeper content.

This podcast is a must have for me and any person seeking to "win" in the world today. Chris Hogan is an awesome host and the content is inspiring and practical, and that is what the producers seem to prize themselves on. If you are breathing, then this podcast is for you. I am grateful to Chris Hogan and Ramsey solutions for the trajectory my life and finances are on today due to their witness and testimony that building financial peace is simple hard work and discipline. Thank you Chris Hogan. You have changed my life.
