The FT’s Money Clinic
The FT’s Money Clinic blurb gets it spot on – We’re so busy earning money, we don’t have time to learn how to manage it. Until of course, you listen to Claer Barett and her 25-minute episodes. Where and how to invest your cash are the main focus; going beyond crypto and ‘meme stocks’, it’s a podcast for those who aspire to ‘get richer slowly’ and become more confident making financial decisions. No stone is left unturned in this podcast; from the highs and lows of crypto to weathering the cost of living crisis, to your financial compatibility with your partner.
Real and Honest
An Honest Account
There’s no denying that talking about money is often a taboo topic. But fear not, there’s a podcast to help with that. An Honest Account is a podcast about how money affects our lives: our work, health, relationships and more, with a dose of practical advice for listeners.
Each week, host Rachael Revesz is joined by a special guest – or two – to discuss what they’ve learnt about money, how it’s played an important part in their lives and the wisdom they’d pass on to other women.
The Last 3 Digits
Real-life finance stories from real people are our kind of podcast. It was sad news to us when the last episode aired in January, but I guess it’s good news for those just discovering the podcast as there are lots of old episodes to catch up on! Co-hosts and friends Bola Sol, Nego True and DISUNOMICS tackle a wealth of interesting finance and economic topics in a relatable, chatty manner. From spending habits, FOMO splitting bills and the rising costs, the hosts alongside guests, blend their own personal and financial lives seamlessly.
Cash Cows looks at how we spend money, why we spend it and all the times we really wish we hadn’t. The hosts unpick different spending habits, look at their guests’ finances and attempt to break the taboo of talking about money. Tune in to find out how to deal with buyer’s remorse, get into a rhythm with your savings and understand more about refunds, tax and debt. It also sheds some light on buying trends; the excitement of deliveries, and an attempt to answer the question: does virtual spending really hit the spot?
