    #055 | How to travel for free

    We get a lengthy call from listener Matt about “credit card churning” and Mike can’t resist discussing this passion of his. We discuss what credit cards are out there, how to find them and the impacts to your credit when you sign up and cancel them. And most importantly, we talk about how to leverage this to travel for free! That’s the name of the game. We also learn that Maggie loves musicals and Mike loves “fine print.”

    #054 | Covid, Cars, and Chit-Chat

    We chat about cars, covid, and lots of other chit-chat. We read some recent reviews and address a few listener tips and questions. This includes sharing our thoughts on side hustles and what happens to your 401k when you leave a job. Maggie purchased a used car last weekend, and on her way to get the car found out her husband tested positive for covid. Mike then avoided Maggie at all costs, as he should. We also talked about Maggie’s new job, and our passion for lifestyle design.

    #050 | Maggie wants a new car and Mike stages an intervention

    Maggie shares that she’s considering buying a new car, and Mike shares all of the reasons why she should not buy a new car. This is part debate, part intervention, and part friendly podcast discussion amongst two friends. Maggie unpacks all of the reasons why she wants this specific new car, and Mike debates all of her reasons and gives her new rationale to consider. Mike had a slight advantage in that he had Maggie’s reasons for buying a new car in advance, and then he surprised Maggie on the spot during the recording with all of the reasons he thinks she shouldn’t buy a new car.

Love this!

Listening feels like we’re all just hanging out and chatting about finances. I love the simplicity and casual approach. It all feels very comfortable and I’ve learned so much about FIRE just by listening. I didn’t even know what FIRE meant before this podcast!

Love the show!

I absolutely love the entire premise behind this podcast trying to get friends to talk about money. I have never understood why talking about money is so taboo. I really like this open approach and how they make talking about money normalized.
