Basic information

Helpful but basic information. Worth listening to for someone in the early stages of considering a loan, buying a house, saving etc. Useful tips to manage your budget and plan for the future. I like how they use simple language that doesn’t over complicate what they are taking about. Slightly patronising sounding at times but I think it is ultimately based at people with little to no knowledge and it can be hard to find this advice displayed in a clear and simple way. This podcast does the job
