There is zero formal financial education through the standard schooling system.
Your formal education prepares you for your career and making money! ...but after graduation you're on your own trying to figure out what to do. This leads to a lot of frustrated, furious people!
Finance and Fury picks up where your formal education left off, providing a unique insight into the world of economics, personal finance and building wealth with three different episodes each week.
To start the week, in Mondays' episodes we look directly at personal finance, so you can act independently and make your own financial decisions - not follow the crowds. Let's be real here, how well is that working out for the ‘average’?
Say What Wednesdays – Each Wednesday we give you the answers you are looking for and respond to questions from our listeners (that's you!)
Furious Fridays – Each Friday we explore often misunderstood topics about finance and the economy, shedding some light in dark places, and challenging some common misconceptions.
