For most people car and home insurance policies are expected, necessary costs of owning those things. Because we automatically set up these policies, we tend to forget to continually shop them around- which may mean we’re significantly overpaying! Loyalty with a particular insurer doesn’t save you money over the years so continually shopping your provider is one of the best ways to get your rates down. Listen as we cover several other ways to save big on car and home insurance, plus we answer the question: When should I even use my insurance?!During this episode we both enjoyed a Uroboros Stout by Anthem Brewing which you can find on Untappd.

There are a host of reasons why renting a place instead of buying might be a great idea for you (we even dedicated an entire episode to the topic!).

What kind of life do you really want to lead? Does consumption and stuff dictate your life more than you’d like? It is so important to examine your own life to discover the small changes you can make right now to give you more freedom to do the things that truly matter most to you. For this interview, we sat down with Chris and Cristi from Life Opted Out to talk about how and why they chose to leave a life they loved in NYC for a much simpler, more affordable life traveling the country in their van. They share that so many of the lessons they’ve learned are not specific to life on the road, and can be applied to anyone looking for more purpose and fulfillment.During this episode we both enjoyed a Nothing Left to Give by Orpheus Brewing which you can find on Untappd.

US households owe a total of $420 billion in credit card debt so it’s no surprise that everyone is looking for an easy solution. Debt consolidation (and debt settlement) companies offer a quick fix but they often cost you a lot, wreck your credit score, and they may even completely scam you without performing any of the promised work. Rather than consolidation and settlement companies, consider the sure route- ‘manually’ consolidating your own debt and, if needed, utilizing loan companies like Lending Club or SoFi- just make sure to do your homework and read the fine print! In the end, make sure you have a plan to keep yourself from taking on new debt- you don’t want to end up back in the same situation!During this episode we enjoyed a Secret Lovers - the Sequel by Wilmington Brewing Company which you can find on Untappd.

Do you feel comfortable with the expectations of your job and the number of hours you work? Or do you sense impending burnout with the constant demands and grueling schedule required of you? This week's $Pro, Tanja Hester, is here to talk about how to begin making your job a smaller part of your life. Her first step to achieve this is saving up just enough money to shift that power imbalance that you may feel with your boss, and give you confidence and bargaining power. We will also cover three routes to consider taking to make work optional for you and the different ways that retirement can look. Let's take the proper steps now to make work more optional!During this episode we each enjoyed a Quadrahopic by Land-Grant Brewing which you can find on Untappd.

Even though the federal government published a report that determined the average cost of raising a child from birth to age 18 is $233,000- that doesn’t mean you HAVE to spend that much! When calculating how much YOU will spend on a child, start by asking yourself: what are my current expenses? Because really the best indicator of how much you’ll spend on your kids is how much money you are already spending on yourself. The cost of children will be an extension of your values and what you’re already spending money on. Listen as we cover how much kids cost, ranging from specifics like the cost of car seats to a broader, principled approach towards entertainment and spending in general.During this episode we each enjoyed a Heavy Hands DIPA by Spindletap Brewery which you can find on Untappd.

Nearly 80% of Americans wouldn’t be able to pay their bills if they missed a paycheck. When you’re used to living paycheck to paycheck, the idea of setting aside some extra money is almost laughable. How do you even consider setting financial goals when every dollar you make is already going somewhere necessary? In this episode we talk through how to choose to set goals regardless of your financial situation. The goal of an emergency fund for some breathing room and financial cushion is the very thing that will allow you to still pay your bills if you miss a paycheck! Even saving $1,000 can be enough to end the cycle and allow you to escape that paycheck to paycheck lifestyle.During this episode we each enjoyed a Roast Beast by Modern Methods which you can find on Untappd.

Rampant consumerism and consumption is becoming the norm, and this is partly due to the fact that it is so easy to make purchases online. $Pro Katy Wolk-Stanley is challenging that notion by refusing to buy new stuff, and instead, she’s prioritizing her goals and values when it comes to consumption. Free piles of stuff on the sidewalk and your local Buy Nothing group can be great, but they’re not the only way to drastically cut back. Listen as we’re challenged by Katy and as we seek to save more of our money by spending less on junk we don’t need.During this episode we enjoyed an AZ Dreamsicle by Arizona Wilderness which you can find on Untappd.

Thanks for the podcast! I appreciate that it is not as preachy as some other financial podcasts. We all make mistakes but we all came here to better ourselves.

loving the podcast. trying to get better with money and this podcast is for sure helping. I don't really care about the beer drinking but I just skip thru it if I want to end the episode a few minutes faster. and it keeps the podcast at the roots of where it started

I really like these guys but it's unbelievabably annoying when they talk about craft beer and other garbage for 15 minutes

Light-hearted, easy listening with a solid structure. I like how they keep beer as the end caps on an episode and avoid financial jargon that may derail less savvy listeners. This podcast and the guys' attitudes throughout help paint money in an approachable and fun way. Whether it's a quick tip, advice from financial big dogs, or a grounded anecdote at the root of a financial lesson; these guys deliver great insight on the seemingly complex world of $$$. Overall: a great addition to your podcast quiver.

I just completed the gauntlet of episodes in record time. I think started listening around a month ago and ran out new shows! Awesome stuff, we share many of the same philosophies on life, traffic, beer and money! I too hopped on the electric bike train early on, about 4-5 years ago now. 10 mile commute both ways but with the traffic here in Santa Cruz California I actually got to work faster than driving. Definitely a good time for reflection, fresh air, and maybe a podcast in one ear. Keep up the good work guys, you have an awesome thing here.

I've been listening to this podcast in the UK while cleaning windows. Very easy to listen to and enjoying the podcast. Gives me food for thought. I'm not really into beer, but after listening to these two for a month or so now, I'm on the lookout for some craft beers! Thanks guys. Keep up the good side hustle

By the way, drinking a warm/hot beverage increases your internal body temperature, which helps you wake up in the morning! Great tips from the podcast! Thanks!

new listener. love the podcast, but I'm very disappointed to see that you're advertising the zodiac serial killer podcast. Shouldn't be feeding into the fame and notoriety, it's what psychos like the killer want.
