Great to hear the episode on frugl app as a general tool to use BEFORE shopping. Didn’t realise you could add filters to adjust your preferences.

Huge fan, sent it to all of my friends

I absolutely love this podcast! I sent the one about who gets to inherit your super to all of my friends, all of which are under 30. I had no idea I couldn’t nominate my brother as a beneficiary unless I deferred it to my estate. Something I can guarantee my less financially engaged friends would know either.

The content is super interesting and digestible, would 100% recommend!
