Have you gassed up lately? Then you’ve noticed prices are rocketing higher. And it’s not just gas prices. In every area of your budget, from groceries to rent, you’ve likely experienced inflation eating away at your buying power.

We’ve talked about the reasons behind inflation in recent episodes, but we haven’t talked about what you can do to fight back — in other words, to hedge higher prices.

That’s what this week’s “Money!” podcast is about. As usual, my co-host will be financial journalist Miranda Marquit. Listening in and sometimes contributing is producer and novice investor Aaron Freeman. We’ve also got a special guest, Josh Rodriguez from personal finance website Money Crashers.

Sit back, relax and listen to this week’s “Money!” podcast. You can do it right here on the site or download it wherever you get your podcasts:

A podcast is basically a radio show you can listen to anywhere and anytime, either by downloading it to your smartphone, or by listening online. They’re awesome for learning stuff and being entertained when you’re in the car, doing chores, jogging or, if you’re like me, riding your bicycle.

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.
