Completely out of touch with the financial realities of most Australians, who will never be able to buy a house and struggle to pay for basic necessities. Fatuous advice for people who are already relatively well off. Shame ABC.
This financial advice isn’t boring
I’m inspired to cleanse my money habits and look into a different aspect of my financial life each episode. The hosts and guest experts are non-judgemental and give advice that’s relatable and not full of jargon. It’s hard to get motivated about my bank accounts but the Pineapple Project has made this otherwise dry topic sexy.
Some good info amongst an annoying host and unfunny jokes...Sorry!
