We're proud to launch Your Family, Your Money, our new podcast for anyone who’s ever wished they were better at handling money.
It's hosted by Caitlin Fitzsimmons (Money editor for the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age) and Georgina Dent (Fairfax columnist and associate editor for Women’s Agenda), two mums who know what it’s like to juggle babies and budgets.
The ten-part series offers a fresh and fun approach to family finance, from busting bills to the back-to-work juggle to the economics of children. It's packed with information relevant to real families, which Georgie and Caitlin explain simply and clearly with plenty of humour thrown in.
