I enjoyed the podcast with the warm and down-to-earth Michelle and Paul Clitheroe, where I heard Paul's voice for the first time! I've been a fan of his and read his advice closely for around two decades; his writing is usually fun to read and easy to understand at the same time, a great bonus! My only suggestion is that it would have been helpful for Michelle to have briefly summarised the 5 Rules of Money given by Paul, before she wrapped up the podcast. That way, they could more easily have stuck in the minds of listeners! Thanks for an enjoyable format (it lets me do 20 mins of floor exercises as I listen!)
