I don't remember if it was Emily or Anna but one of you commented re her bread making skills. Not good apparently. Check out no knead bread on YouTube. No kneading needed. Really! Goo d bread made at home although no sense of awe making it. Takes time at home only. Enjoy "Money" every week and sometimes more (if offered). Do not pay for plus though.

Move along, this podcast is pointless

If you want to hear rich people discuss money in a generalized not specific way, this is the podcast for you. This podcast puts forth zero ideas, offers no fresh perspective, and basically champions the idea that ... can’t figure out what the purpose is. I’ve listened to like 8 episodes, and feel like I’ve learned nothing. It’s officially a waste of time.

Goo d bread made at home although no sense of awe making it. Takes time at home only. Enjoy "Money" every week and sometimes more (if offered). Do not pay for plus though.

Move along, this podcast is pointless

If you want to hear rich people discuss money in a generalized not specific way, this is the podcast for you. This podcast puts forth zero ideas, offers no fresh perspective, and basically champions the idea that ... can’t figure out what the purpose is. I’ve listened to like 8 episodes, and feel like I’ve learned nothing. It’s officially a waste of time.
