Tom Watson and Liv Gee break down confusing finance topics into delicious bite-size pieces
12. Passion vs money: the ultimate career divider
Greetings fellow finance folks and welcome back to another episode of the Finance Burrito! On today's episode Liv and Tom are throwing it back to the good old days of university. More specifically, they'll be asking whether money or passion play a role in choosing a career, plus reveal most popular and employable degrees in the country!
To get the inside scoop on how younger Aussies are feeling about their job prospects during COVID-19 and their motivations to study, we lined up not one, but two sources! First up, Liv chats with year 12 student, Ethan, while Tom sits down Elvan (my baby sister!), a business/law student who's just about to wrap up her degree.
And to end things on a silly note, Tom and Liv are spilling the beans on whether they'd pick up cash they found lying on the ground. They'll both share their past experiences and how much it would take for them to turn it in - oh the controversy!

Entertaining discussions about money issues
The discussions about money matters here are entertaining, informative and also important to know about. It’s on my regular weekly playlist now!
Food for thought
The Finance Burrito is one of the most refreshing finance related podcasts I’ve heard in a while. It’s probably not one to listen to if you’re into to breaking financial news but it’s been interesting to hear money approached more psychologically. Tom and Liv are easy listening - I’m looking forward to hearing about what they talk about next.
Got me thinking
Really love the fresh and unique approach to money, which is something I typically find a bit boring.
