Wilsaahhhhhhn! ,

Entertaining and genuinely helpful Australian pod

While there are certainly some great podcasts coming out of Australia, it’s rare to find something where I’m compelled to tune in every week but Two Broke Chicks is just that. The two hosts Sal and Al have incredible chemistry/banter and offer some truly helpful advice. The tip about checking a brand’s Instagram ads for coupon codes has been a game-changer for me personally. Keep it up TBC! If you ever launch a Patreon, I’ll be one of the first to subscribe.
