This podcast is specifically aimed at people in their 20s and 30s, so the tips are directly applicable to your life now. The weekly episodes focus on topics such as how to tackle credit card debt, start investing or saving money to buy a home. It’s basically a “get your s— together” PSA sponsored by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Ad Council — and we mean that in the best way possible. Unlike some talking heads in the money game, you’ll actually understand what you’re hearing and will be motivated to put their words into action.

Whether you haven’t started investing yet and just want to learn how to play the game or have been doing it for years, the episodes have something to offer all levels of investors.
