The Dave Ramsey Show

Reviews For The Dave Ramsey Show

The financial advice on this podcast is solid, and I can attest that I have personally benefited from it. Not just the "get out of debt stuff" either - Dave knows about a lot more than that. However, the amount of advertising, both for the Ramsey products and for outside companies, is absurd. The amount of actual content in a 40 minute show is actually quite small, particularly when you take out the Dave rants (a part of the show I could also do without).
If anyone could make America take responsibility for everything, its Dave!
The most recent episodes won’t play on the podcast. This has been happening for a week now. Can someone fix it?
Lots of good tips and practical advice. A bit too high and mighty at times. Too much bible thumping too. Be ready with your fast fwd button and use often. Some of the guest hosts are terrible and do nothing but self promote. Dave is speaking to people who lack motivation, follow through and discipline. He waters it down so people get their debt paid off. He should encourage people to get their employer 401k match, but opts for the scorched earth approach. It’s definitely not the most cost effective way to get out of debt but the goal is to complete the journey. Mixed feelings on the rating but a 3 out of 5 seems appropriate.
Title says it all. Dave seems to have a terrible time avoiding jumping all over the place and making simple and logical financial problems convoluted and theological. Not helpful. One bad piece of actual advice I heard him give was to recommend an old Audi and BMW over a less expensive Chevy on the basis of reliability and maintenance. He doesn't know much about cars.
Nice to have a Christian perspective on money. Dave helps people get out of debt and build wealth while keeping their commitment to God.
I have a question I’d like to ask, wondering how to call in and if there are certain hours?

1/5

Quite frankly, I don't trust him, and watch out for his "endorsed" financial advisors. They took advantage of us and after doing some research online and reading some other financial blogs, I realized that I was naive in buying into the Dave Ramsey brand at all. My mistake, and it won't happen again. You've been warned.
I used to be able to listen to Dave and get educated on financial issues, but he’s obviously about to retire and I can’t listen to them any more. I used to merely ignore all the religious crap, but not today and not ever again. If evangelicals have taught us anything from the rump administration, it’s that their issues are completely phony and then the least “Christian” of any religion. They can never explain pretending to be Pro life, but profoundly against healthcare or caring for anything older than a fetus - American citizen or not. And, that’s just the low hanging fruit. Ps. Even ignoring the above, Dave is the only “host” in the current rotation with any talent. He has “it” that allows people listen to him about any topic, but the others are not going to make it as radio or podcast personalities.
“I’m a hillbilly. We don’t do drive by’s, we buy the house next door and lay siege ya little twit” lol!!!! Dave is the best! I listen to him every day and wish he was on for more than 3 hours a day. Great financial and life advice in a no- nonsense way! Wish I started listening years ago, keep it up Team Ramsey!
I love listening to this podcast daily. I find it interesting to hear Dave's responses to people's financial woes and struggles. I wish there were more Dave Rants and Millionaire Theme Hours though.

I finally decided to jump on the Dave Ramsey bandwagon and listen to his podcast. I’ve never read one of his books or listened to him speak, but he has been recommended several times so I thought I’d give it a try. I listened to an episode about debt blocking your financial dreams. He went off on a crazy rant about tiny homes and was really condescending and downright rude. It was incredibly off-putting. Everyone I have spoken to talks about how inspiring and motivational he is. How can you be inspired when he’s ranting and raving and calling people stupid? He could’ve said “In my opinion, tiny homes are a bad investment because they are a fad and the majority of the population aren’t buying them.” Instead he chose to be arrogant, condescending and quite full of himself. Talking down to people is not motivating. Couldn’t even finish listening. I definitely won’t be tuning in to his podcast anymore or buying any of his books! What a tool!
The Dave Ramsey Show is always good for daily motivation when it comes to getting out of debt and building a solid financial future!
I have always been good with my money. However, the simple steps and practical real world advice that Dave and the team gives has really unlocked my dreams. Dave gave me the vernacular for what I was already practicing and the confidence to do what I knew I should do but people said couldn’t be done. Thanks Dave!
I am a liberal agnostic but I can’t help but enjoy Dave so much. His voice is very soothing in my car hahaha. I appreciate his plan and the clarity it provides and are trying my best on it. I don’t agree with 0% of what he says but it doesn’t matter. Listening to him and being more aware of my finances has been a blessing in my life.
It’s gutsy for someone to be willing to call in or write to ask for advice. But Dave needs to be considerate and compassionate. He has financial knowledge which is great, but I think he should share it with sensitivity because money is a stressful subject for many people, especially those needing support and help. Please don’t be mean to those who are willing to be vulnerable.
This podcast is fantatastic and the fact that it gives relevant and practical advice we can all use in our day to day finances make it a go to!
Dave, Thank you for your ministries. We have been fighting debt for 30+ years. Obviously not very well until we found your broadcast and then pod casts and attended FPU. As of November 2017 we are and will remain 100% DEPT FREE including the house. Yup, we are weird and proud of it!! God Bless you and your team, Brent and Teresa
Thanks Uncle Dave (this is what we call you at home) for making Finance so easy. Our family is now on mission and living with a purpose. We WILL be debt free by 12/2019 thanks to you and your team!
I was enjoying the podcast till Dave decided to go on one of his anti liberal rants. Not really sure we he felt it necessary, but I was actually tuning in because I saw his show as apolitical. It was about helping people, not insulting them.
My friend told me about Mr. Ramsey a little over a year ago. Completely changed my life for the better. Made me look at money and credit in a totally different way. I no longer believe in credit. I truly believe in a cash only policy and changing my family tree. If I can do it as a sole earner with a smaller income and family of 4 anyone can do it. Thank you Mr. Ramsey.
Love this Podcast.. Listen Daily
Dave’s advice is simple and straightforward. Following it will lead to success over time. The debt free screams and everyday millionaire hours are inspiring to hear and know that anyone can succeed if they are willing to put in the work.
‘Met’ Dave and his daughter on jean chatzky’s podcast a year ago They were compelling and so it began-the start of a great transformation of our family! We had debt we didn’t realize was negatively impacting us. In 6 months we flipped every thing around -awesome! (Shocking how well the snowball works!!) Take his advice and you will succeed!
The number of times he interjects and rambles about unrelated bs before the caller even asks their question is so annoying.. also the Jesus stuff is kind of pathetic
I love Dave Ramsey and his principles. His Podcasts are a great way to keep myself on track financially. It’s wonderful to hear others talk about their goals and the ones people have successfully accomplished. I recommend him and this podcast to everyone I know.
Dave’s firm but caring advice is very motivating. We will pay off our mortgage in 5-7 years! Highly recommend, do subscribe.
Listening to Dave every day driving to and from work is keeping me laser focused on much needed debt reduction, baby steps! A world of thanks Dave!

5/5

Joel inspires me everyday every time and the podcasts keeps me doing the right things and also helps me to be a better person.
Love this podcast!!!
If you are not looking forward to check your bank account balance or open your mail because of bills PLEASE subscribe to this podcast and Read the Money Makeover book. Please follow the instruction and I promise that It will change your life like it did for me and my family!! Thank you Dave Ramsey
Dave, thank you for what you do everyday! You are changing people, families, and Americans like no one else in the public light is. This veteran thanks you for YOUR service!
Take the time to listen to Dave’s years of advice and experiences. Why: because it works! I was fortunate to have parents that taught me about Dave Ramsey and his financial advice however if you’ve never even herd his name, he can still help you! I appreciate how he tells the truth and calls out situations as what they are!
You may disagree with Dave Ramsey about some point in what he teaches, but millions of people, including Dave himself, can testify that the principles he teaches work, every time they are applied. He communicates in an entertaining style that keeps me listening even though I think I could do the show, because I have listened so frequently. My wife and I paid off our house several months ago because we followed the principles. I am very thankful I started listening and learning and applying the things he teaches!
I’m only 11 and the Dave mister taught me a lot about personal finance
Thank you Dave. You have opened my eyes to a life I could have never imagined.
Straight up honesty. We all know we overspend and we buy more things we don't need. Do just shoots it to you straight. Just like your grandfather would. "Rich people don't use air miles for vacations." I still remember that from his radio show long before he his Tv show, and this podcast.
Dave’s advice is simple and straightforward and he has proven time and time that it works. He is candid and tells you the hard truth. He does not waiver. I listen to the podcast on my daily commute and each day I learn something new. Hearing other’s stories and challenges helps me stay motivated to push through the tough decisions. Keep it up Dave and team! Love the show!!!
Enjoy listening to you, Dave!
Dave will always give rock solid, smart, and awesome advice that people of all ages need to hear! Thank you Dave for being genuine, honest, and caring to all people! You have helped me so much, teaching me things I never would have learned without your great advice!
Very simple and straight forward method for getting out of debt and building wealth. My trajectory has completely changed and in the end will prob save/make me hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Solid show about debt and financial advice. I listen to the podcast obviously and having the episode numbers helped me organize them in order, especially when life got in the way. I have to double check now that I’m not adding an episode I already did by actually looking into the episode. Otherwise I would rate a 5 or 4.
Thank you so much Dave! You have really turned my life around.
I listen to all 3 hours of the podcast daily traveling to & from work. Listening helps me to be better than I deserve!
THE podcast for anyone needing to get their money right. Even if you don’t have any financial problems, it’s a great show where you can learn financial information to help you build wealth better!
I have nothing but great things to say about The Dave Ramsey Show. We have learned what we feel is the best way to gain financial independence. We have improved our financial lives dramatically with this and always share the sage & biblical advice of this program to help others create and follow the best plan for every person/family to adopt and use. The laser guided focus of each “Baby Step” makes it so easy to follow. Listening to the show allows us to understand further on advice and tips with other people’s situations. Always something to learn with almost each episode.
Great at giving people a nice kick in the pants!!!! Lol-great financial advice and very wise! Cash is king in my life because of his teaching and I really appreciate it!
My wife and I have been following Dave's plan, we're about half way thru paying off our debt and totally on fire. Love this show, love Dave's heart for the Gospel and helping people handle money with biblical principles. Dave teaches the fastest path to wealth. Wealth does not come easy, it takes years. But wealth rarely happens when you owe other people money. Dave inspired us to cut up all 5 of our credit cards, pay them off, pay off student loans, car loans, personal loans, and get debt free. I listen every day and get more inspired every day!!!
I always share Dave’s guidance with everyone! A must learn and teach information! Thank you sir. You changed my life. Check me out on A Beautiful Mind I’m your host Peter Marvin we talk Mr. Ramsey because I believe in him and his teachings. Thank you please share
