    Written Notes
     
    Black Lives Matter. This episode is a heavy topic but very necessary. Mykail discusses the 2020 Protests against police brutality. She also talks about a very sensitive topic: Life Insurance.

Entertaining, Motivating, & Hilarious

I love listening to this podcast! Both hosts do an amazing job at explaining finances in an exciting way. Because they are both “down to Earth” I feel like they answer all the questions I have in my head pertaining to finance and technology. This podcast has really encouraged me to take my budgeting more seriously with tips to allow me to “love my money time” and to not be afraid to look at my bank statement! LOL
