Introducing Our New Podcast: M.O.N.E.Y.

by J. Money on Monday, February 1, 2016

M.O.N.E.Y. Podcast

Guys! Our new podcast has finally launched!! Will you check it out and let us know what you think pleeeeease?? And if you love it leave us a review? We’re so SO excited to bring it to you!

iTunes Page –> M.O.N.E.Y.

HUGE thanks to my co-host Paula Pant and our sound engineer, Steve Stewart, for pushing me/us to get this thing done and into reality after all these months. I had no idea how different the world of podcasting was (I actually don’t listen to them – *gasp*) and if it weren’t for those guys I’d probably still be trying to figure out how to connect my mic correctly, haha… You might notice how different I sound compared to Paula in the first few episodes until we fixed it ;)

But, we’re live now, baby, and ready to talk money! Literally! And it’s soooo much fun and easier over written word too, although much harder to edit… You’re gonna know exactly how I think and talk after listening to these as it’s all raw and uncensored. Our iTunes page looks like a rap album with all those EXPLICIT labels! Haha…

But hey, that’s real life right? No fancying it up and pretending to be something we’re not… We just get on the mic and do our thing! And hopefully you don’t catch us drinking beer get a lot out of it :)

So What’s This Show About? Besides M.O.N.E.Y.?

Well, pretty much the exact stuff we talk about here only amped w/ Paula on our side who brings a massive amount of energy and experience to the show to compliment yours truly. Not only does she run her own real estate empire and can technically retire anytime she wants (yeah passive’ish income!), but she’s an amazing hustler and entrepreneur too who’s completely transparent with how much she makes and shares how others can do it too.

In other words, she’s a financial beast. Only prettier.

So a lot of building wealth talk, investing tips, how to cut expenses, budgeting better, reaching financial freedom, entrepreneurship, and pretty much crafting a kick-ass lifestyle for yourself. The whole point of money at the end of the day, right?

We also be bring on a handful of guests doing some incredible things as well (retiring early, paying off their houses, traveling the world, making thousand of dollars hustling and more).

Oh, we’ve also started doing “Ask Us Anything” episodes too where people can *ahem* ask us anything and we’ll answer their questions on the show :) Anything from money to personal life to blogging to entrepreneurship, whatev. And I guess now podcasting – hah!

If you want to submit questions yourself, give us a shout and we’ll answer them in the next round.

Show Schedule & Episodes Released So Far

money podcast itunes

As of today we’ve got 6 full episodes you can listen to at any time, and over the next two weeks we’ll be dropping another episode every two (work) days until we’ve got 11 or 12 out the door and we’ll then move to once-a-week shows. That way none of us gets tired of listening to each other ;)

Here are the shows live right now, along with show notes if you can’t listen yet:

  1. The Story of M.O.N.E.Y. – Having Heart & Hustle
  2. Don’t Feel Guilty – Buy a Coke Zero and Pay Someone to Mow Your Lawn
  3. The Habits We Rock to Kick Ass and Grow Wealth
  4. The Ultimate Beginner Guide to Real Estate Investing
  5. How Kids Affect Your Hustle (and it’s Okay!)
  6. How to Transition from Hustler to Entrepreneur

We Hope You Like It!!!

It’s been a blast so far and already feels more natural than when we started a handful of months ago… We really hope you learn a lot and have fun along with us :)

You can find the official site for the show here: (no “m” at the end), and also on iTunes, Stitcher, Android, and RSS. We also have an email list if you’d like to be notified each time a new episode drops – you can sign up here for that.

Thank you for all your support and helping us get to this point! Neither of us would have launched this without our awesome communities behind the scenes, and now we get to go on another adventure with y’all.

See you on the air! :)

UPDATE: GUYS!!! Thank you so much for listening and sharing and just being overall BAD ASS! M.O.N.E.Y. is currently #5 in (all) of iTunes right now under “Business” – Incredible! We’ll eventually fall off, but it feels good soaking it in for now! Haha… All beers on me next time we see each other :)

Yayyy! Thank you Laura! Up at 5 am means you’re a true hustler, too ;)


3 Brian @DebtDiscipline February 1, 2016 at 5:59 am

Good luck with the podcast! Just adding to it podcast list and looking forward to giving it a listen.


4 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 6:27 am

Let me know what you think!

Excited to get the whole batch out there (within the next two weeks) since I feel like we’ve gotten better as time went on.. Also have some pretty good interviews lined up :)


5 Chris Muller February 1, 2016 at 6:33 am

Congrats bud. I’ll be sure to check it out this week.


6 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 7:41 am

Thanks man! let me know if it passes the test :)


7 Roy Largo @ Band of Savers February 1, 2016 at 7:19 am

Love it J. I’ve already listened to the first two this morning an love them. Looking forward to learning more from you both through this new medium.


8 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 7:42 am

Woahhh you’re fast! So glad you’re enjoying it, thank you for letting me know!! So scary putting something out that you’ve never done before so I greatly appreciate it :)


9 Lord Metroid February 1, 2016 at 7:45 am

How about uploading it to soundcloud as well?


10 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 8:24 am

Will look into!


11 J. Money February 2, 2016 at 12:28 pm

Hey Lord (hah),

We just got approved in Stitcher which is the route we ended up taking instead of Soundcloud. At least for now. Should still do the trick for you!


12 Elise@ Uphill To Easy Street February 1, 2016 at 8:03 am

Yes!!! (she yells while pumping her fist in the air like the end of a 90’s teen movie). I am so pumped! Now I just need to convince the others in the car to turn Raffe off and give your podcast a listen.


13 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 8:23 am

Hah! I don’t think anyone can top Raffe :)


14 Hannah February 1, 2016 at 8:12 am

Pumped for another great podcast to add to my repetoire! Congrats!


15 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 8:23 am

Thanks Hannah! We hope you enjoy it!


16 Catina Marie February 1, 2016 at 8:20 am

So excited! Anyone have a recommendation on a podcast app? There are like 10 options for android. #newbie


17 Catina Marie February 1, 2016 at 8:22 am

Nevermind….grabbed one with a million downloads. I’d say it’s a good choice. Woot!


18 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 8:22 am

Haha, I need one too for Android! I don’t listen to many but need to change that :) The only one I’ve heard so far that’s good is Podcast Addict. But hopefully others can chime in and recommend for us.


19 Catina Marie February 2, 2016 at 8:20 am

That’s the one I grabbed…listened to two full episodes yesterday! #InLove with you & Paula…what a genius idea!!!


20 J. Money February 2, 2016 at 9:58 am

Awww, thank you! That makes me so damn happy!!


21 Tonya@Budget and the Beach February 1, 2016 at 9:28 am

Whoo hoo! Congrats! I hope it’s a huge success J and Paula, and can’t wait to listen!


22 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 9:58 am

Thanks friend!!


23 Chad Carson February 1, 2016 at 9:47 am

Adding to my podcast feed today. Congrats on the launch! I don’t commute or ride in my car much, so I’m no a big podcaster listener either. But I’ll make a point on long trips and other times I need a break to listen to you and Paula. I know it’ll be awesome!


24 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 10:00 am

Thanks man! Always appreciate all your support.


25 Michelle February 1, 2016 at 10:26 am

Congratulations on launching your podcast! I love working on my podcast and it IS totally different. You’re going to rock this.


26 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 11:56 am

Thanks Michelle! It’s def. getting smoother as time goes on here :) Not a pro at it like you are yet!


27 Broke Millennial February 1, 2016 at 11:02 am

Already cruised through the first episode and half of the second between walking Mosby this morning and my morning subway commute. I love getting even more of the background about both of your stories. Plus, it’s great that you two come from such different backgrounds. And I might have gotten inspired to do a no-spend 40 days for this year’s Lent!


28 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 11:57 am

Huzzah!!! So glad you’re enjoying, friend. Yes, that no-spend challenge CHANGED MY FINANCES forever. Highly recommend, obvs.

You’re making me miss NYC too and the subway – such fond memories!


29 Lee S. February 1, 2016 at 11:08 am

Oh wow, that’s your voice. I’ve read your articles for a while now and this was not the voice I had in my head. But now I do. I’m listening to episode one right now and already there is chemistry between the two of you so I think it’ll be great. She even edited and put in at the beginning that the audio quality will get better later on, that is great! Loving it!


30 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 12:00 pm

Haha yeah – my damn mic wasn’t connected in the Skype settings correctly so the entire time I was speaking into it like a dummy while my cheap video attachment mic was capturing my voice… Why we didn’t catch it sooner is beyond me, but yes – it gets MUCH clearer come ep 6 :) and all those going forward too – woo!

(I find it fascinating to hear peoples’ voices too vs their text… You forget about all the accents people have depending on where they live! And some sound nothing like they write too :) I feel like my emotions come through good here, but who knows… def. can’t be missed on the podcast – hah)

thanks for giving it a listen!


31 Lee S. February 1, 2016 at 12:50 pm

Your emotions do come through well here on the site, in my opinion. I love in episode 2 when you both start talking about saving and you disagree with her and she disagrees with you and then you both explain why. There is a lot of passion on both sides and I am enjoying it thoroughly. When she is talking about her save 1% plan and you start explaining it back to her and she’s like “Yeah, Yeah!” it’s just great. Loving the excitement. I believe this podcast will go far as long as that excitement stays.


32 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 4:25 pm

haha… thanks man. we def. try to stand our own grounds but at least explain why :) then it’s up to the listeners to determine which route to take! or hopefully both!

I tell you… totally different world on the mic vs keyboard. will be interesting to see how both this site and that show go in the future. and lots of learning/having fun in between!


33 Fervent Finance February 1, 2016 at 12:03 pm

Awesome! I’ll give it a listen.


34 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 4:26 pm

Thanks! that means a lot!


35 Kalie @ Pretend to Be Poor February 1, 2016 at 12:58 pm

So excited to check these out! I’m especially looking forward to “How Kids Affect Your Hustle (And It’s Okay)”. I think I, along with many others, need to hear that.


36 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 4:28 pm

that’s the episode I almost cried on… those kids get to my heart and I tear up all the time unexpectedly! haha… let me know what you think when you’re done.. I tried to be as real as I could and there are certainly pros and cons to mixing kids with business/life/etc. Interesting to hear Paula’s questions too as someone totally on the outside :)


37 Stockbeard February 1, 2016 at 3:37 pm

Boom! Subscribed!


38 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 4:30 pm

You = the Man


39 Karen February 1, 2016 at 3:46 pm

I got the early access email and was so excited! I listened to 4 episodes that night :) you two are seriously great together! your show is fun, personal, informative and did I mention FUN hehe I too love to hear the actual numbers and you guys keep it real. I left you a glowing review on itunes :) one thing I will mention which hopefully you find helpful is the numbering of the episodes on itunes was confusing for me (but then I figured out the order went bottom up so it was all good).


40 J. Money February 1, 2016 at 4:42 pm

Thanks Karen!!

What a testimonial right there in itself, way to make me smile!!! :)

And yes – I hear ya on the ordering. As someone who doesn’t listen to podcast myself, I too was confused at first. At least you only need to figure it out once :)

Thanks for making my afternoon.


41 Shannon @ Financially Blonde February 1, 2016 at 5:45 pm

Congrats!! I’ve listened to a few and you guys are off to a great start!! Welcome to the podcasting club!!


42 J. Money February 2, 2016 at 6:35 am

Thanks Shannon!! We were missing the party you and the others were having over the years :)


43 JayP February 1, 2016 at 7:29 pm

Loved it. Definitely adds a new element to hear your voices. One thought – Episode 1 was labeled Episode 1, but the rest werent. I wanted to hear them in order but not sure how I downloaded them. Maybe include episdode # in the title? Of course there is always the possibility I did it wrong. Anyhoo, really enjoyed the personality combination and different perspectives. Somewhat unique in showing that there are multiple paths to FIRE!


44 J. Money February 2, 2016 at 6:38 am

Thanks for listening! So glad you liked!

Will look into the episode #’ing too.. I know that iTunes orders them from newest to oldest, but not sure how the others do.


45 Smoney February 1, 2016 at 7:39 pm

Definitely going to download these for my commute tomorrow! Woo! Will leave you a great review on iTunes.


46 J. Money February 2, 2016 at 6:41 am

Thanks Smoney! Appreciate that!


47 Nicole Clark, LMSW February 1, 2016 at 8:13 pm

I’ve listened to 3 M.O.N.E.Y podcasts so far! The flow between you and Paula is great, and so is the content. And your story of getting fired on the day you’d planned to give your 2 week’s notice was hilarious!

I also enjoy the E for explicit content label on a money podcast!


48 J. Money February 2, 2016 at 6:46 am

Haha, Thanks Nicole. We do our best to keep it real! :)


49 Kevin February 1, 2016 at 9:00 pm

Sweet! So now we can hear your sexy voice talk about money :P


50 J. Money February 2, 2016 at 6:48 am :)


51 Chris @ Flipping A Dollar February 2, 2016 at 6:09 am

Cool stuff J! Congrats.


52 J. Money February 2, 2016 at 6:51 am

Thanks Chris!

One of our next episodes is interviewing the team behind who makes quite the pretty penny flipping stuff on eBay. You’re gonna like it :) Some great tips!


53 Mrs. Wanderlust February 2, 2016 at 9:41 am

Loving the honesty and humor! I will plow through the episodes today and tomorrow!

I really appreciate the intellect and humor while cleaning. Tomorrow it will hopefully get me through, part of, my 8 hour round trip drive to drop my car off at a port to be shipped to Hawaii!


54 J. Money February 2, 2016 at 10:00 am

Oh wow!!! Sounds like you’re on a nice adventure over there! Glad you’re enjoying the show! :)


55 Travis @enemyofdebt February 2, 2016 at 11:02 am

So cool! I wonder if listening to money podcasts would be a good thing to listen to on my long runs? I think I’m going to find out.


56 J. Money February 3, 2016 at 8:18 am

Haha awesome.. let me know what the consensus is :)


57 Pat February 2, 2016 at 12:25 pm

I’m having a J and Paula podcast marathon while decluttering my files. I love the new podcast, and I’m getting inspired! :)


58 J. Money February 3, 2016 at 8:19 am

Yayyyyy! We’re all about the decluttering too! Such a great way to stay focused and less stressed.


59 Financial Samurai February 2, 2016 at 12:26 pm

Wonderful! Always looking for a new podcast to listen to on the road.

I tried for several episodes and gave up. But maybe I’ll start one up again this year as just a dialogue.

Hope you guys can continue unlike me!

Best, Sam


60 J. Money February 3, 2016 at 8:20 am

Haha, thanks man. It’s a LOT more fun (and less work) when you join up with someone else, I’ll tell you that much :) No way in hell I’d have recorded even one by myself! So you beat me there!


61 Pat February 2, 2016 at 12:35 pm

BTW, is Paula’s site having technical difficulties? It won’t load for me :(


62 J. Money February 3, 2016 at 8:22 am

It shouldn’t be :( Try again if you haven’t already. Every now and then sites get wonky w/ server stuff. Should totally be fine now.


63 Jayson @ Monster Piggy Bank February 2, 2016 at 6:16 pm

Congrats J Money! I am gonna listen to your podcast later. I am so excited about this.


64 J. Money February 3, 2016 at 8:22 am

Thanks Jayson – I hope you enjoy it.


65 Vic @ Dad Is Cheap February 3, 2016 at 1:14 am

Congrats J!

Just listened to two episodes – will be devouring more this week! Good stuff!


66 J. Money February 3, 2016 at 8:23 am

Awesome! Hope you like it man! :)


67 carlotta February 3, 2016 at 3:34 am

I can’t downloading it :( is it only for the us?


68 J. Money February 3, 2016 at 8:25 am

Yikes – sorry to hear..

You should be able to listen to it *anywhere* in the world. Not sure about iTunes-specific, but we’ve got it loaded all over the place so should be no problem for ya.

Try Stitcher:

Or try just bringing up any of the episode articles on our website for it which has a player imbedded in it at both the top and the bottom of the show notes:

Hope this helps!


69 Sarah February 3, 2016 at 1:48 pm

Listened to the first few episodes on my commute and absolutely loving it so far, congrats guys :) Can’t wait to see what’s to come.


70 J. Money February 8, 2016 at 3:32 pm

YAY!!! Glad to hear!


71 EL February 4, 2016 at 11:38 am

I will check it out, sounds like FUN. Congrats to you and Paula for making top 5 dead or alive best list. HAHA.


72 Jenlarson79 February 4, 2016 at 2:40 pm

Just finished your first 2 podcasts on the beyondpod app! Very cool and entertaining! I’m listening while I clean and declutter our house, so we can (hopefully)downsize our home this summer! Can’t wait to hear more :D


73 J. Money February 8, 2016 at 3:33 pm

Perfect way to listen! So glad you’re enjoying it! :)


74 Heather February 4, 2016 at 2:56 pm

I’m on episode six of your new podcast. Well done. I actually like the variety of subjects that you discuss. It does occasionally get away from money topics, but you pull it back together in the end. I guess money relates to everything, right? It’s actually interesting to hear how different your takes are on income, spending and investing. We can learn a lot from both of you and I’ve definitely picked up tips from both, I have to say I’m definitely team budget though, budgeting has saved my life! With the anti-budget, I can see myself spending all the money at the beginning of the month and making my 4 kids eat ramen for the rest of the month!


75 J. Money February 8, 2016 at 3:34 pm

Haha, I’ll have to let Paula know that ;)

Really glad you’re finding it useful and entertaining enough to keep listening… We’re def. different but believe in the same thing at the end – the power of using money to create your ideal lifestyle! It’s an incredible tool!


76 Lynn February 11, 2016 at 9:08 am

I enjoy both yours and Paula’s websites. However, the podcast language is too much for me so I’ll stick with consuming the written word.


77 J. Money February 11, 2016 at 2:09 pm

Sorry about that – we tend to get feisty and much harder to edit out ;)


78 Diane February 12, 2016 at 8:04 pm

LOVE the podcast. You guys are awesome! You and Paula make a good team, and I love how conversational it is – informative and entertaining. Also, thank you for the Suze Orman book, it was very helpful!


79 J. Money February 29, 2016 at 5:05 pm

So glad to hear, Diane :) Thanks for checking it out!


80 Amy @ DebtGal February 13, 2016 at 5:37 pm

I’ve been binge-listening, and love it!!


81 J. Money February 29, 2016 at 5:05 pm

Awww love to hear that!! Thanks Amy!


82 the smart money girl March 22, 2016 at 1:04 am

Congrats on the stats. btw you both have nice voices. Could be a radio host duo…


83 J. Money March 23, 2016 at 2:38 pm

Hey, thx! Glad you’re enjoying it so far :) Perhaps real radio will be down the line?
