Wouldn’t it be nice if accumulating wealth, avoiding debt and retiring rich was as simple as playing Monopoly?

Alas, that’s not the case. But it is possible to use some of the same techniques gamers use to make your money life a bit easier. As it turns out, there are lots of simple tips and apps you can use to help you do everything from creating an emergency fund to investing in stocks.

In this week’s “Money” podcast, we’re going to talk to one of my favorite podcasters: Joe Saul-Sehy of Stacking Benjamins. Joe’s going to give us the lowdown on some cool tricks, tips and apps that can help you save more and spend less with maximum efficiency and minimum hassle.

As usual, I share the broadcast booth with longtime financial journalist and fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit.

Sit back, relax and listen to this week’s “Money” podcast!

Not familiar with podcasts?

A podcast is basically a radio show you can listen to anytime, either by downloading it to your smartphone or other device, or by listening online.

They’re totally free. They can be any length (ours are typically just under a half-hour), feature any number of people and cover any topic you can possibly think of. You can listen at home, in the car, while jogging or, if you’re like me, when riding your bike.

You can listen to our latest podcasts here or download them to your phone from any number of places, including Apple, Spotify, RadioPublic, Stitcher and RSS.

If you haven’t listened to a podcast yet, give it a try, then subscribe to ours. You’ll be glad you did!
