As the coronavirus continues to unravel our world, it’s hard to keep up with the changes. Investment turmoil continues unabated, millions are jobless, and fear is tightening its grip.

Not to worry. This week on our “Money” podcast, we’ll continue our discussion about what to do about your savings. We’ll also discuss when your stimulus check will arrive, how to spend it and how to earn some extra money while you shelter in place.

Listen to our latest ‘Money’ podcast

In this week’s podcast, I get help from longtime financial journalist and fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit. Give it a listen.

About podcasting

I’ve been experimenting with podcasts for a few months now, but in light of recent events, it’s become part of my weekly routine. It should be part of yours as well.

Not familiar with how podcasts work? It’s time to get that way. There’s simply too much important information available out there to miss out.

For those unfamiliar, think of a podcast as a radio show you can download and listen to anytime. They’re totally free. They can be any length, 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 you’re riding your bike.

You can listen to our podcasts here or download them wherever you normally get your podcasts, including Apple, Spotify, RadioPublic, Stitcher and RSS.

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