Why is everything so expensive? Personal Finance Podcasts

Many of us have money on our minds lately. It’s hard not to.

Groceries seem to cost more, gas prices are higher than ever, interest rates and rents are rising, and for many, affording a home is completely out of reach.

That’s why this week, we’re dedicating this week’s show to stories about money and personal finance.

We have stories about how money affects our relationships, like Tessa, who turns to her sister for help with credit card debt. And tips from author Kaley Klemp on how money fits into a long-term relationship.
