Solid advice for years
Clark knows his stuff! His knowledgeable advice has helped me so much, along my financial independent life. From simple spend less than you make, freeze your credit, Roth IRAs are magical, to PPP loans and straightforward advice during the “Great Recession “ and pandemic. Thank you Clark.

Clark Howard is a genius and a genuine caring person. Don’t let him talk you out of it. His Clark Howard team is phenomenal. Listen to entire episodes and don’t fast forward anything because just when you think that a call or a question doesn’t apply, to you it certainly does. Great for advising family members and friends also. Used most of his advice from my entire life and at age 55 I’m RETIRED! He scoffs at it and this podcast has nothing to do with politics but but our country needs a Clark Howard for president.
The best podcast
Really appreciate Clark
I've listened for years and I have taken notes and followed Clarks advice.

Listener from 2000-2005 just discovered the podcast
I started to listening to Clark’s radio show in 2000 when I graduated from UGA. I started a sales job that required travel by car. The highlight of my day was at 1pm and hearing the instrumental of “She Drives Me Crazy”. From 2000-2004, I soaked up all of the financial advice Clark offered. I started a 401k, bought a house at 25, got a credit Union account, learned about 529 (years before I had children), we went with the Utah plan due to low fees based on Clark, radically paid down my debt and so much more. Basically, I received a financial education from Clark Howard University:) I moved from GA the summer of 2004 to South Florida, and I was unable to get the show. I tried to listen via internet but this was in the early years of streaming. But what I learned stayed with me and helped to solidify my financial house. Fast forward 15 years later, I discover the podcast, in that the time I got married to my college sweetheart, progressed in my career, had two lovely kids, and moved a few more times. I’m working my way backward catching up shows. However, I’m in a much different financial situation—, no debt except my mortgage, owner of multiple rental properties, decent net worth. All possible because of what I learned from Clark in those early years. I hope this message finds it’s way to you, Mr Howard. Your financial advice has helped me to build generational wealth for my family. I recently refinanced my primary residence and used the calculator on your site for guidance. I’m so glad to have Clark’s guidance again as I make important financial decisions.
We appreciate you Clark
I’m never disappointed Clarke. Thank you for continuing your very sound financial advice via the podcast
As a former Ramsey listener I’m a recent convert to Clark Howard. I’ve been aware of Clark for years but never listened to his show or podcasts until now. I find Clark entertaining, down to earth and real. Clark is a real person living in the real world. His advice always seems reasonable. Plus it’s quick and to the point. Thanks Clark. You’ve got a new fan!!!!
Love this podcast andI have always really enjoyed Rob Lowe since the 80s. The problem is I listen when I walk in the morning and people think I’m crazy because I usually have a smile from ear to ear or I’m actually laughing out loud.
Phony and Disrespectful
I am unsubscribing. I have always suspected that the wholesome everyman routine is just a schtick and I now know it for sure. You had the opportunity to apologize and pronounce the name of our new Vice President correctly but opted to play dumb and simply not say her name instead. You can keep your racist, libertarian and Trumper fans, but I’m done. HER NAME IS KAMALA HARRIS
Great information about financial stuff that is down to earth.
I’ve been listening to Clark for over 20 years & like the podcasts because I can listen to them at any time!
Educational and not boring
Newly discovered this podcast - heard of Clark Howard when he visited the Dave Ramsey show. Enjoying his podcast so far.
Changed my life
This show was found by me on my wedding night in 2004. I have learned how to use money as a resource. Clark and his team have helped us off air as well. This podcast is awesome!
Senor Howard Is a Treasure
The FIRST podcast I listen to 90% of days! Sometimes I desire more content within each podcast, and dislike the advertising. (I know there is an option available.) The only podcast (of 10+) that I have rated 5 stars! So many positives! And, Clark Stinks to laugh at!! Kudos to all involved.
Great Consistent Advice
Good simple financial advice, through the peaks and valleys of our economy, Clark’s advice has remained consistent and a good teaching to play the financial game like chess and not checkers.
I’m amazed by how knowledgeable Clark is in all aspects of life! Can’t get bored with the dry humor and financial life hacks. Just perfect.
Clark is extremely knowledgeable regarding finances and provides very useful advice.
Great advice, great host!
Clark Howard is the best financial and consumer podcast out there. He is super smart and also super nice so it’s fun to listen! He has saved our family hundreds and maybe thousands of dollars and many headaches. Pro tip: don’t assume that Clark approves of a company or product just because there’s an ad for it during the show. Thanks Clark and the Clark Howard team for such great content!!
Clark Howard is the ultimate consumer guru. I love this pod!
Best Financial Podcast
I have been listening to this show for a few years now and listen to every episode. It is hands down the best financial podcast out there. Format is great and I never get tired of it. This is how I start my day every weekday.
Unlike the disgusting likes of Dave Ramsey who constantly pushes his products. Clark Howard is truely unbought and unsold. While Dave Ramsey proudly built a 200 million dollar complex selling get out of debt programs. Clark Howard is absolutely free and even suggests reading his books used or from a library.
The microphone is awful, the man is ancient, biased views
This podcast is a default for the elderly, the unbearable for the youth. Super low energy biased vibes on every podcast. I hope they learn to step it up. To go on-top of that, the microphone sound like they got them out of a cereal box in the 2000s...
My favorite podcast
I’ve been listening to Clark for years while working night shift. He’s saved me a bundle and gives timeless investment advice.
He knows how to save you money
The genuine article
For a very wide span of money matters, this is a very informative, valuable and trustworthy resource. There many fakers or folks promoting their own interests. Clark Howard and his excellent staff give you information that is current, accurate and easy to understand. Want to save on regular expenses? Want to consider investment, credit, or insurance options? Want to avoid all kinds of scams and ripoff? Listen for a week, you’ll be glad you did!!
Addicted to this show
I listen to quite a few different financial shows but Clarke's show is the one I always hit refresh on the most just to double check if there’s any new episodes. It’s always the first financial show I listen to every day and I absolutely love it - he gives the best usable advice and he always lifts my mood even when he’s giving negative news about the market or banks lol
Great source of information on a lot of different subjects in relation to money Thank you Clark
Thankful for Clark Howard
So appreciative & thankful for Clark Howard’s knowledge! Thank you for being honest and helping the consumer!
#1 PODCAST IN AMERICA!
Clark’s advice & recommendations are priceless! This is the only podcast I subscribe to, & The Clark Howard show is the only podcast I recommend when others ask me for advice on everything from finances to consumer debt.

Clark over the Dave Ramsey show
Clark Howard now has all of my time. He actually speaks unlike Dave Ramsey with all of his sales people acting as co-host. Keep up the good work Clark
Clark never stinks!
How refreshing for Clark to voluntarily and encouragingly solicit feedback from his listeners!!! Proposing that the show is so much better when listeners challenge Clark’s comments/ideas is stupendous. Thanks Clark and team !!!
Advice that has impacted my life and others
I will have to be careful to be brief because all the amazing things I could say about Clark and his team could go on to be a long essay if I don't reign my comments in a bit. First of all, I started listening to Clark on the radio some 25 years ago. At that time, I learned to live on less than what I make and invest the most I could in my 401K and make sure my husband did too. I saught out ways that we could live an amazing life while still creating a life changing level of wealth for my family. When I graduated from college I had about $16K of debt. I worked to pay that off and then continued to agressively save money. My husband did too and we went on to buy our first house. I never took money out of my house and work to improve it yearly. We built up several hundred thousand dollars in our house in equity over the years. This again, while pushing to put as much into our 401K. Over the last several years I have shared his words of wisdom and the podcast itself with dozens of people. I know it has helped them to be more informed as well! I was recently able to retire... a little early and hope to spend a good portion of my time helping others with financial advice and working with Habitat for Humanity. This is a great way for Clark to have "passed it on"!
Statements by Mail
After listening to your show, I changed all my accounts to have monthly statements by mail. Some banks don’t make it easy to switch from electronic to paper! (Cap One 360: I ultimately had to speak to a supervisor to have it done). Thank you for the tip!
Financial Advice Was Right On!
When the market hit the skids in March...I almost panicked. Clark was cool and calm...”don’t change your long term strategy” he preached. Wow was he right! Yes...it has been an up and down ride...but the lesson is Follow Clark.
Clark is the best!
I grew up in Atlanta, listening to Clark on local radio with my parents. His show is a piece of home, but even more, his advice is my financial compass. Grateful to be able to listen to his show via this podcast. He’s the best!
Love This Podcast
Love the Clark Howard Podcast! Wish it was longer. Can’t get enough.
I love this podcast
I’ve listened to Clark for almost 20 years since I was in college. Clark’s practical advice and tips have really allowed me to save more, spend less, and avoid being ripped off. I have traveled to so many places for very little money, have ample retirement savings, and almost have my house paid off. Clark is a true blessing and a genuine person. Clark doesn’t do paid endorsements or try to push you toward one of his paid affiliates. Clark could be a much wealthier man if he operated like other syndicated talk show hosts. Clark is objective and just wants to help his fellow humans he doesn’t let bias influence the narrative. I dread the day when Clark can’t do the show anymore. His advice will continue to pay dividends for the rest of my life.
Clark has saved me so much $$$
I’ve been listening to Clark Howard for years, first on the radio and then via podcast. He has saved me so much money, helped me make some legit good decisions with credit cards, retirement savings and more... and my credit report is now in the 800-815 range. Sweet! So thankful for the good advice and his neutral way of dealing with issues and hot button topics. So much respect and appreciation.
I prefer Dave Ramsey over Clark Howard.
Clark, I love your podcasts. They are very educational and the way you talk makes it feel like a caring family member is talking to me. I love it. But please, eat healthier food and learn how to cook.
Clark, does a great job warning folks about bad value int he marketplace. It's amazing how the term "Consumer" is so broad and affects us all.
Love Clark’s Podcast!
This is my favorite podcast. Being in the financial industry and advising consumers on credit and ways to save, I find Clark to be a wonderful resource. His delivery is fantastic and considerate. Great Podcast!
I have been listening to Clark Howard since I was a kid riding around with my dad. Clark is a very personable host who brings you the latest on ways to save money. Probably the podcast I would recommend most out of all of the ones I listen to.
OK info, but repetitive.
A lot of the same things over and over again.
Great man with great advice!
Clark Howard is a very humble man who has our best interest in his mind at all times. He really seeks the best information to help you and I know what’s affecting our money today. I really enjoy the show!
Mr. Logan Jones
Listened to Clark for years! Love his solid common sense advice. He has been a tremendous help in educating me about ordinary consumer finance issues as well as investing for retirement.

Making a Positive Impact
The Clark Howard Podcast is a huge asset to listeners. Through well-researched and clear-cut information, we listeners continue to gain valuable support to positively impact our lives. His humble manner and honest articulation help create a sense of trust in the advice given. I’ve listened to several other financial gurus, and none compare to Clark Howard. Much gratitude to Clark and his talented team!
Great for consumers!
I first heard Clark in the early 2000’s on our local radio station. I thought “what a nerd”. When I retired in 2008 I started listening to his podcasts. He got me through the recession and I continued to listen. Great consumer advocate!!
