Welcome to the finance podcast for adults and kids. Mak and G are 11-year old twins and they’re going to teach you, and your kids, all about money. Each bite-sized ‘minisode’ tackles a financial topic like Piggy Bank Origins, The Value of Money (and how to conserve), What’s An Allowance, and more. Because they’re short, you can listen in the car on the way to soccer practice, dance, gymnastics or even school. Mak and G talk to the kids and ‘Dad’ chimes in with his 2 cents at the end so both parents and kids can put what they learned into practice. It’s fun financial education for everyone.
