It is an international celebration of the power of podcasts. It’s a great opportunity to connect with fellow podcasters, podcast listeners, podcast enthusiasts, and leaders in the podcasting industry. Learn more at InternationalPodacastDay.com.

All news is good news! The New York Times wrote a piece with Podcasts for the Recent College Grad recommendations. Under the section If the word ‘budget’ makes you sweat you can find yours truly (Paychecks and Balances) mentioned with “Other helpful podcasts about money management.” If you’re a recent college grad or know someone who is, share this story with them. It’s a great list and we’re happy to be part of such great company.
We met NerdWallet personal finance expert and writer, Amrita Jayakumar, at FinCon16. Proving the theory “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” we were fortunate that she thought of us again in 2017 when she was putting together an article on personal finance gurus for an upcoming piece. While both Rich and I continue to debate who is the ‘guru’ half of the show, we were happy to be considered with so many other great and talented individuals.
