Pocket Money: A podcast from Finder

Money, life and the messy bits in between.

About Pocket Money

Do you remember when you got paid pocket money or an allowance for the very first time? Were you the kid that looked after every cent, carefully putting it in your piggy bank? Or did you head straight to the shop to blow it all on red frogs and chocolate freckles? Or perhaps you were somewhere in the middle? After all, we all have different spending and saving styles.

Now we are adults things haven't changed that much - though those "pocket money" payments are a lot bigger and there are more temptations to splurge on than just mixed lollies - and that's where our podcast comes in.

Pocket Money the podcast is about money, life, and all the messy bits in between. And, no matter where you are on the finance spectrum, we've got you covered.

Join our hosts Kate Browne and Sally McMullen with some help from a cast of experts as we discuss all the things. From the hidden costs of owning a pet, side hustles, recession and investing, right through to what happens to your money (or your debts) when you die. We follow the money wherever it goes, because even though life can be a bit messy sometimes, your finances don't have to be.

Come join us! Pocket Money is published every two weeks to all leading podcast platforms.
