If we’ve learned one thing over the past few weeks, it’s that we have a lot of newfound time on our hands. Time spent mostly indoors. Yes, in our spare time we’re all binge-watching television shows, proving we are the next Top Chef, and occasionally reading a novel or two.
But, wouldn’t it be great if you could pick up a new hobby, one that broadens the depths of your financial knowledge?
Here’s a few reasons we think you should add binging money podcasts into your weekly routine (if you haven’t already):
- Can act as a voice of reassurance during uncertainty
- Provide tips on how to budget more efficiently
- New advice on how to save money
- You’ll learn something new-guaranteed!
- Fun way to pass time
