It’s like a masterclass
In transitions. I came for the finance advice and ended up learning how to transition my everyday conversations into sponsor ads...and they claimed I wouldn’t learn anything. Awesome hosts and guest interviews, fun and interesting topics and discussions, easily my favorite podcast.

Stuck in the 90s
I usually try to find something nice to start but I can’t here. They seemed like nice guys at first, but in the one episode I listened to, they contradicted themselves three times and they patronized a person’s thoughts on what current investments could be successful in today’s environment. That person wasn’t present to defend himself and I happened to agree with most of what he said. Everything I heard from the hosts were investment strategies that were successful in the 1990’s. Those strategies may bring mild success today, but they flat out ignored today’s macroeconomic environment and what’s to come. Horrible show in my opinion because they’re afraid of learning new concepts or don’t understand alternative investments.

Awesome Podcast
You got Joe’s laugh will make you start laughing and you got OG with his sense humor will make you laugh even harder. But for the most part this podcast is a must to listen

lots to learn from stacking benjis
I enjoy this podcast and learn a lot. I like the humor and they have introduced me to many concepts and other pods to learn from

Joe’s not old
At least Joe is not old enough to forget to introduce OG.
thank's dave
I love how the show has evolved
I've been listening to SB forever, and while I've bored of other podcasts, this one continues to change with the times. I've noticed the conversations have become sharper. The show has more of a "late night talk show" tone. I've had more laugh-out-loud moments during my morning run. Highly recommend.

Yeah, it’s pretty good.
I mean it’s still pretty good, but things haven’t been the same since Joe stopped saying “So let’s move” all the time. I can’t figure out how to stop it from downloading episodes, so I guess I’ll keep listening.

General finance info, weird shtick
If you want general info on financial info, this is a good place to start. It wouldn’t be my first recommendation, though for the following reasons: 1 The “Joe’s mom’s basement” thing doesn’t resonate with me. If it works for you, great! But I don’t get it and find it mildly annoying. 2. Feels like more commercials than on other podcasts 3. Info is good for people looking for broad financial advice and/or motivation, but I don’t find this podcast different from any other personal finance podcast. Since I’ve listened to numerous personal finance podcasts—to great personal benefit—I find myself skipping Stacking Benjamins almost every week because it’s a rehash of old info which I find covered in more compelling ways by other podcasts (weird shtick makes it easy for me move on from it too.)

Easy listening finance, who knew!
I’ve been listening for a couple years now and finally writing this review after I gave up on learning anything... In all seriousness these guys are awesome. Not dry at all like you might expect from a finance podcast. Super knowledgeable and straightforward Even neighbor Doug can drop some knowledge when he’s not at the sizzler! Definitely recommend for anyone from newbies to finance nerds like myself! PS writing this made me want some dessert, better head to the sizzler to meet up neighbor Doug!

If Only...
IF ONLY the SB podcast provided solid financial advice! IF ONLY the SB podcast entertained and amused listeners! IF ONLY the SB podcast made my early-AM run a truly pleasant experience! Ah, IF ONLY! ...

Engaging banter
I was reluctant to listen to a money show, but my wife introduced me to this and I like the engaging banter between the host and other participants. It’s a funny show where you learn important money info, though you don’t realize it. It’s my kind of show! - Rich

Real Wisdom interlaced in the humor
Stacking Benjamins sneaks financial insights into a funny, entertaining show. It's like these guys want to teach about money, without the listener realizing they're being taught.

Land the Plane
Come for the personal finance-aviation analogies, stay for the day-old cole slaw. This podcast features some of the best trivia on the Internet. Both listeners have yet to learn anything though...
Steak Brother
Straight Shooters on Financial Advice
They will always shoot you straight. They can bake fantastic cookies and teach you all about parenting and trivia. Best way to spend your Coronavirus commute and listen to financial talk.

Soooo much intro
Too many people on a single podcast. Spends way too much time talking about each person. Start around minute 10-15 for actual content.

Money with Denay
My favorite financial podcast.
jchrishaunn
Not funny by any measure.
You guys derailed my day chewing food and sucking liquid on the show, not funny. Google hyperacusis next time you think those sounds are joke.

Entertaining and interesting
As podcasts have become more common, they have come and gone from my subscribe list. Stacking Benjamin’s is one of the few that has stayed for years. The humor and segment style let make it so that at least a portion of the show engages me even if one part is not a topic that I have any interest in.

I accidentally learned something
This podcast is great for people who want to sort of learn a thing or two about finance under the guise of a variety show. There is a ton of banter and joking sprinkled with nuggets of legit advice. I find myself laughing out loud at some point during pretty much every episode. I'll be doing a write in vote for Doug 2020. Thanks for all you do, guys.

Inconsiderate guest
Why would they let a childish bully like Greg McFarlane on their show? Otherwise a good show. One rotten tomato spoils the whole bunch.

Give Gertrude a Raise
If you want financial pundits yelling at your for an hour three times a week you’ve come two the wrong place! Joe and OG casually give sage advice about personal finance from the comfort of Joe’s mom basement. However, the real star is Joe’s mom’s neighbor Doug who LIGHTS UP the show with his spectacular trivia. You won’t learn anything, but you’ll be a lot better off for listening
TommyJpg
Stay calm and carry on.
No panic, no hysteria, just good, solid financial insights from people wise enough to know that this too shall pass.

Financial podcast with the most middle-aged-man-giggling
If you’re into that kind of thing. I guess I am? Anyway, this crew has become my replacement for real-life friends while I hide from coronavirus. Lots of love from Charlotte, NC.

Should be better
Show is not bad half the time. My problem with pod is that I feel like they pre recorded their podcasts and aren’t relevant. For instance currently the markets are taking a dump, country is going into crisis mode, and these guys are talking about their usual fintec junk. Basically it’s like that “this is fine” meme where they promote their sponsors as everything around them is burning......that response! Mid 30s here and in 2008 I had 3 bucks to my name. Now watching it all crash being a business owner is scary AF. You’re response is correct tho. I’ve never known anything but to constantly look at the market. Constantly have news channels on. Constantly being informed. Thank you. BEST RANT EVER

Arty from Warsaw
I agree with Arty
I heard Joe speak of Arty from Warsaw and then he and OG explain how "they've been through this before." While I understand their sentiment, I disagree they've been through THIS before. I used to enjoy the show but there are just far too many reading from sponsors. Joe can never talk to a guest without chiming in about his experience as financial counselor for 16 years. OG is the best part of the show. Oh... and no, I'm not freaking out so I don't need Joe's condescension either. I just thought it was spot on that you guys had shows in the can and ran with it.

This show makes my commute to work fun!!
If you are looking for an opportunity to learn about finance and get more than a few laughs in while you do it, this is the podcast for you. Thanks Joe, OG, and Doug!

Best Edutainment Out There! Gets You Going
I’ve been listening to this show for 3 years and it’s what sparked my interest in personal finance. Their easy-to-consume lessons and segments spring-boarded me into other pods and books and made personal finance understand and just a tad bit less intimidating!! Doesn’t take itself too seriously and I love the guests and co-hosts (Paula, I’m looking at you!)

An Amazing Mix of Fun and Substance
I love how Joe and the gang bring so much lightheartedness and fun while still managing to give great wisdom about finance.

Time
Listen to more than ten minutes before it actually got to the podcast subject. No thanks.

In the daily rotation
Good listen. Piece of constructive criticism: The corny segment intros with the weird voice get pretty annoying and make the podcasts way longer than they need to be. I find myself always skipping through them to get to the actual content.

8 minutes in
And I still haven’t heard anything related to the show’s description (the reason I clicked on it). A lot of filler. From reading the other reviews I’m not alone.
LilMartin
Awesome Podcast!!!
Joe, host of The Stacking Benjamins Show, highlights all aspects of business, investing and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!
Clarisse Gomez
Listen if you must
The show is the right amount of finance and the right amount of “stop being stupid with your money”. I find myself laughing out loud on the commute to work or while walking the dog, coincidentally enough, these are the only two times you are authorized to listen to these guys. You will hear the same story again and again where they tell you to diversify your money, and set it and forget it, and we are our own worst enemies. Thanks for nothin guys. Semper Fi.

Great show!
I love the show,Joe and O G are very informative and entertaining. Thanks for the shout out! Your friend, Roberto. 😜

I do learn
Love the humor and guests, love the headlines with great discussions. I’ve found myself laughing out loud alone on my commute. But I don’t understand all this non-sense about not learning anything, sure Joe and OG might only have 2 listeners. But I learn every episode from Doug’s amazing trivia. Keep it up!

I wear a bag on my head when I listen to the show
Makes the drive to work while I listen to this way more interesting and I enjoy everyone except that one person. You know who I’m talking about. They. Are. The. Best.
Matt the bomber
This show grows on you
Technical content is generally spot on. Joe and OG are complimentary. The guests are great and Joe is a strong interviewer. It does take a while to catch on to the inside jokes.
Interested bystander
Money With dOuG.
Joe and OG don’t have the most professional podcast in the world, but it’s amusing none the less. At 3 posts per week, there’s no shortage of content to adsorb and immediately forget. Not sure if I’m getting smarter or dumber sometimes, but at least there Doug’s useless trivia to look forward to. Keep regulating your 8-ball episodes.

Life changing
Absolutely love this podcasts. So much informative information on not only your finance but life.

A fantastic listen
This podcast is one of the best - a lot of fun but also very informative The relaxed style of Joe and OG make this compelling listening The production is very professional and you can tell these guys have mastered their craft Three shows a week is a lot of work but I listen to every one of them Thanks for such a great show

This show is freaking amazing!
Peter Griffin III
Awesomeness!
This is a great podcast on personal finance. No charts, no yelling, no banging on the table and lots of humor to coincide with the information. Sound concepts in a laid back atmosphere. It won’t take long for you to be hooked unless you would rather listen to Ben Stein talk in detail about Smoot-Hawley. Great guests and round table. Fees, glide paths, gas in the tank, runway behind you, and altitude above. I (don’t) learn something every time I listen. Even the ads are low key. Joe & OG could get u interested then BAM-commercial, but no. Their advertisers must like them because they horse around with their ads, too. Then there’s the part of the show that doesn’t exist... and Joe’s mom’s neighbor Doug w trivia. Mom, I’m looking for my spot on the fridge.

I laugh, I cry, I learn
I laugh (at the snark and silliness), I cry (about all my financial mistakes), I learn (despite Joe & OG’s best efforts). SB podcast is a delightful side of candied marshmallow yams in a heavy diet of financial meat and potatoes. Bon appetit!
Amy Abroad
It’s fantastically ok
I thought about leaving a 1-star review just for the joy I would get from how sad that would make Joe. However, that would really upset Joe’s mom, who doesn’t deserve that. You should listen. Unless you don’t want to.

The awesomest personal finance podcast!
I discovered the world of personal finance podcasts a couple of years ago and binged on bunch of them. But one can only listen to so many a week so I had to narrow down to just a few to focus on. I do keep less than 10 personal finance podcasts in my subscription and Stacking Benjamins comes to the very top of my list! Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I make sure I put SB to the top of my que. Combination of Joe' warm humor and dry humor of OG, array of interesting guests, listeners' question and answers, funny Doug's trivia all make up to an entertaning podcast that you still actually learn a lot about life' important aspect - finance! I do appreciate that they release 3 episodes a week, instead of just one.

Well done...some of it anyway
Overall I like parts of this show. The many minutes of commercials is frustrating. There are more Ads on this show than any podcast I’ve listened to. The fin tech segments are not enjoyable. I could do without the sexual innuendos and swearing. Feels like guys trying to gain acceptance in middle school. That being said, parts of the show are great. I only listen to the Friday episodes where Paul Pant joins. I think producing 3 podcasts per week is a ton and listeners get bored.
