If you are new to WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com you should know that most Fridays I run a post called “A Lap Of The Blogs” in which I link to some articles of interest I’ve read in the past week. I also include a weekly “racing video” because my former life was in the auto racing industry… Enjoy!
I’ll be on Newstalk 1010’s Guy Talk with Dale Curd this Sunday night at 9pm to 10pm if anyone wants to tune in. If you are not in the local Toronto market, you can also listen on the internet by clicking here (it’s a live stream, so you’ll have to wait until Sunday at 9pm for my segment.) We’ll tentatively be talking about the financial math behind marriage and relationships.
Episode 5 of the WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com Internet Radio Show
My pod host tells me I’ve reached 600 subscribers to the WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com Internet Radio Show. (I don’t know if that number is accurate, but who am I to argue?) Episode 5 was just published and should show up in iTunes shortly (subscribe to the podcast here). Don’t have iTunes? You can listen to it here too.
