    1. Re:Episode213

      I love this show. The content is awesome.

      I hate to be negative but the food discussion and constant advertising (not talking about the paid advertising, that I understand) in this particular episode was not good. Please stay in your lane.

      Keep up the excellent shows and guests.

      Please listen back to this one and out of the 48 minutes in the episode, you concentrated on the topic for about 25% of the time.

    2. On the saver’s credit, if I contribute the full amount (i.e. $6k), will I still receive $1k extra (tax credit) or do I have to stay with $5k? Important fact: AGI income in this scenario means income from business or work of at the minimum the level of the contribution amount. Interest and dividends won’t qualify for savers.
