This Week: April 24th, 2018
On this week’s show, it was a special Wisconsin Public Radio Membership Drive! Kate and I discussed why borrowing to buy a car may be better than paying cash, how young adults should increase their life insurance, and how to figure out how much money you need to retire (and how much you can spend once you’re retired).
Those topics and many more are covered in the On Your Money Mini Money Booklet entitled “20 Money Moves”. We gave a copy of 20 Money Moves to anyone who pledged any dollar amount during the show. Our goal was an ambitious 250 pledges during the hour, and once again On Your Money listeners smashed through that threshold, as 315 generous and decent people pledged during the hour! Thank you so much, and we are going to demonstrate our gratitude by devoting next week’s show to answering your questions.
