Real talk on money matters with an Australian focus

This podcast shows how much impact money has on all areas of our life. From fashion to health and wellness, as well as trends like the FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) movement – it covers fascinating topics in a really engaging way. I really appreciate that there are some shorter episodes too (around 30 minutes long) – they're a great length when you're getting dinner ready or going for a walk.
