Well hello there. Glad you’ve found us here at Spend it Widely. What is ‘Spend it Widely’ you ask? Good question - it’s a non-stop comedy romp through the world of travel hacks (free upgrades anyone), holidays, secrets to getting more when drinking cocktails and eating out, and generally helping you live beyond your means without overspending. Some say we’re funny, most people say we’re a little insane, we think it’s all a bit of a laugh - and the champagne certainly helps.New episodes every other Wednesday.
S2: E1: We're baaaaaaack
You may be wondering where we've been. Well wonder no more as we're about to tell you....at length!
Season 2, Episode 1 of your favourite nonsense from Vix and Dom with the opening ramble for the new season of Spend It Widely.
Episode Nine - Trains, Made moans and Vix makes a confession
In Episode Nine of Spend it Widely we talk about trains, furniture and much, much more. Trains can cost the earth so we’ll give our tips on doing them for a bit less cash. Online furniture is great, but what are the pitfalls - we try and make our moan about made.com into a funny moan. Finally, Vix admits something incredibly embarrassing - I don’t think we’ll ever think of her the same way again.
Hate Ikea? Love or hate Made? Got some Limoncello in the freezer? Good - you’ve found exactly the podcast for you. Plug in the earphone and listen on in? #premium
Episode Eight - Black Friday, Plane Etiquette and Deliveroo Plus
We're back for another episode of (what we intend to be) useful and practical advice on how to Spend it Widely. In actuality, here's another episode of utter nonsense with a few useful tidbits. This week we talk about Black Friday - how to get a deal and how to avoid wasting cash. We also talk about etiquette on planes - there are certain things that are JUST NOT DONE. Lastly, one of us tells you some things they probably shouldn't.
Enough with the pre-amble, pull up a chair, pour yourself a glass and tune on in to this week's episode of the funny(ish) ramblings that make up Spend it Widely Episode eight.
Episode Seven - Gyms, Jims and Vodka Watermelon
Vodka Watermelon....wait, what were we talking about again? This week we try and talk about looking after yourself / exercise and how to not over-spend. Vix also has a moan about something (as does Dominic because he couldn't resist). Want to find out what we shouldn't be telling you? Well then you'll just have to listen.
Join our attempt at advicing (it's a word) which actually lands somewhere between comedy and utter nonsense, although still hopefully funny.
Episode Six - Hotels, Facebook Hates and an Addiction to Smileys
In Episode Six we spend time talking about Hotels - what are they, how to find them, how to choose them and why. We also cover upgrades, loyalty status and getting free nights. Then Dom goes on a rant about Facebook.
Pour yourself a glass of this weeks drink (warm Prosecco), relax in your favourite chair and enjoy this episode of funny nonsense with the occasional useful bit of advice.
Episode Five - Tickets, M&S Chewing Gum and Carl
In Episode 5 we talk about the best value ways to see films and shows, how Vix got to be front row for Hamilton for a tenner, why M&S chewing is an abomination, joint direct debits you allowed to run on way past the end of a relationship, the most infuriating shoppers to be behind in a queue and everything in-between. A funny 20 minute whistle stop tour of Vix and Dom's last two weeks with added tips on everything from entertainment to travel. And, for one episode only, it's all completely recorded on the cheapest karaoke mics from Argos.
Definitely a must listen for the late sleepers
Making your cash go further with a healthy dose of laughter - I love it
If you’re looking for a break from sanctimonious experts telling you to spend less, this podcast will feel like a breath of fresh air. Helpful and smart without being patronising, these guys know you’re going to spend some cash anyway so you might as well squeeze as much enjoyment out of it as possible. It’s also very funny - if you’re looking for something to listen to on your commute, give this a go - you won’t regret it!
Definitely worth a listen
Useful advice but also really funny. Made my commute pass so quickly, will definitely be coming back for more.
