Welcome, welcome and thrice welcome!
Getting rid of pesky debt is an important pillar of reaching FI. Of course, if you've tried 8534 iterations and aren't there yet, then give up. It's hopeless.
NO! NO! NO! I was just kidding!
(We use humor here sometimes. It's part of our charm.) Don't EVER give up! If it takes another 8534 tries before you get there, just keep working at it and it will come. Keep the faith.
You mention you and DH make a good income, which is wonderful. Also that you love your w*rk, which could be even more important since it obviates urgency regarding when you clock out for good. Some of the posters here do not necessarily love their w*rk, which puts pressure on their timelines. The ability to pick your RE date freely instead of in a hurry is helpful in achieving your optimum retirement rather than just your quickest one.
I don't detect any actual questions in your post, so I'll pose mine: to what podcast do you refer? Is there one on this site that I've missed for the past three years?
I look forward to reading updates on your journey to FIRE.
