    The Road Ahead

    The Road Ahead

    It’s hard to believe we’re heading into fall. When we first started the Good Money podcast, people were still attempting their first loaves of sourdough, making their first Zoom calls, and trying to figure out how to turn a kitchen table into an office and a kids’ classroom. With sky-high unemployment, a struggling economy, and parents worried about their kids’ return to school, we still have a long road to recovery ahead. So what will that recovery look like? How long will it take? What are the potential roadblocks? And how can we rebuild better? Vancity Interim President and CEO Christine Bergeron joins Good Money host Anicka Quin for a special feature interview.
