SPENT is a funny money podcast for the financially challenged. If you hide from your mail, dodge phone calls from strange phone numbers and would rather have a beer than make a budget -- this podcast is for you.
Why is it that people are perfectly comfortable talking about how many people they’ve slept with but if you ask them how much money is in their savings account...? Suddenly, everyone is a prude. It's just way too personal. We all think everyone else is on top of their money. But guess what? They aren't.
This podcast tackles the money issues that affect us every day. Why is it so hard to save money? Why do we overpay for services or pay extra fees when we don’t have to? How does the way we were raised affect we manage our money? Why does it cost so much to live our freakin’ lives, let alone pursue our dreams?
And finally, why are we so f*****d up about money?
We're taking the shame out of the money game. You'll laugh, you'll groan, you'll learn, you'll get a financial life, one episode at a time.
