Money. Mimosas. Mythbusting.
That Mint Podcast is the brainchild of Cathi Harrison (Director of The Verve Group) and Jo Campbell (Director at Para-Sols). It is also an AWARD-WINNING podcast for the 'Best Podcast - New' at the Investment Marketing and Innovation Awards 2021.
Fed up of answering the same questions to people who don’t know financial services (What is a paraplanner? Do I actually need a pension? What the hell does an adviser even do?) the pair decided to create something that could pop that finance bubble, and make it a little bit more accessible to all.
Bringing their years of knowledge and experience in finance, and combining it with their northern no-nonsense approach, a dash of wit, and the odd splash of wine, Cathi and Jo are bringing a fresh approach to what is often considered quite a dull industry. Listening to this podcast will help answer some of your questions, show you that finance can actually be a little bit interesting, and provide you with the occasional chuckle.
Give it a listen – you won’t regret it! (Unless you’re not a fan of puns – then you’ll definitely regret it).
Episode 23 - This is not an #AD
In this month's episode, Cathi and Jo discuss the Australian trade deal and what that means for Britain in the future. According to the pair, it means more Australian alcohol (very important!). They also reveal the legalities of #AD and why it's used by famous online social media influencers.
Summer holidays have finally arrived, which means vacancies for summer jobs are now available and Cathi and Jo take a trip down memory lane and chat about what jobs they did when they were younger (you would have never guessed them). We also have a lovely chat with Iona Baines and her rise to fame in the financial world. This episode is not one to be missed!
Episode 22 - TikToks, emojis and educating everyone
In their biggest 'lesson' to date, Cathi and Jo do their best to educate you on all things holiday insurance (get it!), car insurance (absolutely get it!) and whether or not chattel disposal includes tortoises or not?! (Listen to find out if it does or not!)
As well as getting emotionally invested in Johnathan the 189 year old tortoise, the ladies are talking all things financial education, the importance of making it accessible to the younger generations, and even chat with the lovely Jessica Crawford from Informed Financial Planning about her favourite emojis - and much more, we promise!
