Money launches new podcast Friends With Money
Feel uncomfortable talking about money with your friends?
Money's new podcast, Friends With Money, could be just what you need.
Money magazine has partnered with NOVA Entertainment to launch the new finance-focused podcast series.
The weekly podcast will be released every Wednesday afternoon, with Money magazine managing editor Julia Newbould hosting the series.
Each half-hour episode will see Newbould speak with a number of special guests about topics such as buying your first property, building passive income, dealing with financial experts, purchasing shares and more.
The podcast also coincides with the re-launch of Money's website, providing readers with free access to guides on superannuation, investments and other areas of economic interest.
Newbould says using podcasting was a new way to appeal to Australian investors and provide them with financial advice in an engaging and light-hearted manner.
"We know that our readers want to be on top of their finances, but many feel confused by the jargon and overwhelmed by the plethora of information available on the internet," Newbould says.
"Friends With Money was born from the idea that it's far easier to talk about taboo topics, like money, when you're among friends. That's why we're having these casual chats with our Money friends for this podcast series."
Kane Reiken, NOVA Entertainment's digital commercial director, welcomed the addition of Friends With Money to the company's podcasting portfolio.
"Personal finance is one of the fastest-growing categories in podcasting, with listeners increasingly looking at ways to earn, save or make the most of their investments," Reiken says.
"We welcome Money magazine to the NOVA Entertainment Podcast Network as a leading voice in personal finance, to educate and inform Australians to make better financial decisions."
The Friends With Money podcast is also available on Apple Podcasts, the Google Play store, Spotify and all major podcast platforms. Listen in here.
