"I heard Erica on other podcasts and insisted that my producer book her as soon as possible so I might interview her. I was immediately taken with her broad life experience and her honest and accurate appraisals of some of the most important issues facing us today. Erica is insightful and delivers a clear perspective steeped in direct observation. Erica is an asset and delivers information in easily digestible manner. And of course her financial philosophies if adopted could help many." -Dr. Drew Pinsky
