Root of Good on Radical Personal Finance Podcast

February in the Caribbean

I was lucky enough to be invited on the Radical Personal Finance podcast last week.  The host, Joshua Sheats, “interviews others to learn from their success, to hear what they’re doing and how they’re winning.”

During the interview, Joshua points out that retiring at 33 is kind of radical and asks me to explain to an audience not indoctrinated into the Financial Independence / Retire Early world how it’s possible to retire that early.  I do my best, but you’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out how successful I was.

Check out my interview on Radical Personal Finance’s podcast.

In the podcast we discuss a lot of early retirement and finance topics.  Low expenses on housing and cars, thoughts on SUVs versus minivans, the importance of saving early.  We even touch on the benefits of slow travel.

In the last portion of the interview, we have a little fun discussing the role of education (public schooling and homeschooling/unschooling), how to raise kids to become autonomous self-fulfilled adults, and how too many extracurricular activities can be a bad thing for kids long term (and deceptively expensive!).

I hope you enjoy the podcast interview!
