This week we’re highlighting a hugely popular podcast by two Millennial women in the personal finance community – The FIRE Drill Podcast.
Teaming up as co-hosts are Gwen, the 27-year-old blogger behind the Fiery Millennials, who recently left her corporate job to become her own boss, along with J from Millennial Boss. J is another 20-something who paid off almost $90,000 of debt and is on her way to financial independence. Her current focus is growing her savings and building multiple streams of passive income.
Together, these women have created a podcast that has reached more than a quarter of a MILLION downloads in just 8 months!
J and Gwen started their podcast to fill a gap in female voices discussing the financial independence community. Since their debut at the end of August 2017, they’ve released 68 FIRE Drill podcast episodes.
Even though their focus is financial independence, Gwen, J, and their guests discuss a wide variety of topics including entrepreneurship, real estate, side hustles, travel hacking, and more!
You’ll laugh as you learn. And Gwen and J will always leave you with terrific action-oriented steps to help you apply what you learn in the podcast to your life.
Who are the guests they have on their show?
Teachers, entrepreneurs, IT specialists, CPA’s, felons, real estate investors, travel hackers, physicians, full-time RV’ers, early retirees, minimalists, and more!
If you want to learn more about financial independence and how it relates to any of these careers or lifestyles than the FIRE Drill Podcast is for you. We encourage you to check out their archive page and read through some of the excellent show notes that Gwen and J provide for each episode.

J and Gwen don’t stop with just interesting guests or thorough show notes with important takeaways. They are working to build a community that carries on the conversation!
