COVID-19 Weekly Update 17
Week 17 of my COVID-19 series is a solo episode where I talk about my experience being a parent during a pandemic.
I don't pretend to know what it's like to be a single parent, have more than one child, or have older children, but I go through what it's been like for me since Henry was born almost 18 months ago.
COVID-19 Weekly Update 16
Week 16 of the COVID-19 series features my friends Brynn Byrne and Aaron Yeger, co-hosts of the new podcast "That Was a Show?".
We talk about Brynn and Aaron's COVID-19 experience and how the pandemic has affected their personal finances, but mostly I wanted them on to talk about their awesome new podcast. I can't explain it better than them so here's the summary direct from their podcast page:
The podcast about failed or forgotten sitcoms from the 80s and 90s. Many sitcoms have stood the test of time and have millions of adoring fans—but those shows were diamonds in the rough. This podcast is not about those diamonds, it's about the rough. Some sitcoms were briefly popular in their time, some were cancelled almost immediately. You probably won't recognize most of these, and you'll say 'that was a show?'
COVID-19 Weekly Update 15
Week 15 of the COVID-19 series features my friend Rubina Ahmed-Haq.
Every Sunday for the last 15 weeks, right before I record The Personal Finance Show, Rubina and I record an episode of the Dear Rubi podcast. Dear Rubi is a column podcast where we take questions from listeners and discuss the personal finance issues of the day that concern most Canadians. So if you like the conversation that Rubina and I had today on the show, search for Dear Rubi wherever you listen to podcasts and click the subscribe button.
COVID-19 Weekly Update 14
Week 14 of the COVID-19 series features Danielle Desir.
Danielle is the founder of WOC (Women of Colour) Podcasters, travel and personal finance blogger, podcaster, and author of 2 books (with a 3rd on the way).
In this episode we discussed Danielle's COVID-19 experience so far, starting with her trip to China in December 2019 just before the pandemic; her level of anxiety about leaving the house (which I understand well), let alone travelling anywhere during this time; and, why it's more important now than ever to have a space for women of colour podcasters.

Important & Informative!
Conversations about money and finance can be difficult for a lot of people. Beau is a thoughtful and empathetic host who makes this important topic interesting and approachable without the taboo. I especially enjoyed Episode 100 about Financial Privilege, and his Covid-19 Weekly Updates.
Beau is a great host who is honest about his own experience and generous with his knowledge and expertise. Guests range from people working in the financial industry, to regular people talking about how that green stuff has affected their lives. Beau and his guests even get into larger issues that are related to finances such as privilege, race and gender. The Covid-19 series gets even more personal as each episode examines the complexity of living through a pandemic in real time. I highly recommend listening to episode 100- Financial Privilege from Sept. 2019. It’s a great discussion with a diverse group of financial bloggers/podcasters that is very relevant for 2020!
Stuff gets personal
I love the direction of this show has taken. Beau asks great questions, and people really open up about how they got where they are now, including mistakes and rough times. I really like finding out about the detours on the path, and how people overcame difficulties in their relationship with money. The rule that family background plays in peoples stories – that’s really interesting too.
