    Work in progress

    In this episode Cal and Santi are talking work, getting paid what you are worth, and how a job is so much more than just a job. There’s still lots to be done about women’s equality but luckily there are folks on the job (pun intended) to ensure the work that women do is counted, respected and fairly remunerated. To quote Barbadian businesswoman and singer-songwriter Rhianna: “Work, work, work, work, work, work.” Indeed!

Take notes!

As a woman who works in financial services, I thoroughly recommend this podcast. If anything finance-related normally bores you to tears or intimidates you, this podcast is definitely worth a listen. The conversations are engaging, accessible and important. The information is on point and the guests are very well selected. Their diverse experiences with money, help to humanise what could easily be a very dry topic. Well done to all involved in putting this together.

This podcast has done the impossible by demystifying personal finances and money policy!! Cal and Santi are so entertaining and package up helpful information into relatable discussions with everyday women about their finances. Can’t wait to keep listening!

Excellent Listening!

If you wanna get wise to how policy impacts your personal finances and what you can do about both, this is a must listen! I laughed and I learned a lot. I love that this podcast meets women wherever they are at and doesnt blame women or trivialise their economic security. Can't wait for more episodes.
