Episode 72: BullCast Unleaded (Gas Prices)

Episode 72: BullCast Unleaded (Gas Prices)

October 21, 2021

Small talk tends to consist of three talking points: the weather, your job, and gas prices. People often get in an uproar about the soaring prices of fuel, but for a majority of adult Americans, gasoline is an unavoidable necessity. Even so, it is a necessity that makes up a relatively small portion of our budget. So, why the gnashing of teeth? Join us this week as we discuss who sets gas prices, what you’re actually paying for when you fill up your tank, and why Katie always waits until she’s on ‘E’ before she starts looking for a pump. We’ll also list out the top 10 gas stations in America and why brands play a large role when it comes to looking for a pit stop. Is the pump worth the squeeze? Tune in to find out!

Episode 71: Time is Money

Episode 71: Time is Money

October 14, 2021

Time: the indefinite continued progress of existence of events in the past, present, and future. Sounds trippy, right? Time is something that is not quite on our side, and the older we get the faster it seems to go. Unlike money, time can never be recovered or made up and we have no idea when we will draw our last breath. But before we get any deeper, we promise this is not a morbid episode! Rather, it’s one that poses important questions we all must ask ourselves. Join Katie and Cort as they discuss the value of your time and why everyone must find balance between doing things yourself (like cooking a meal) and paying someone else to do a task (like getting takeout.) When you consider the value of your time when creating money and spending money, you might make smarter financial decisions. And that’s what this show is all about!

Episode 70: Investing in Furniture

Episode 70: Investing in Furniture

October 7, 2021

In the last episode we talked about investing in clothes, so what’s the next logical topic to cover? Investing in furniture, of course! The idea for this episode came from seeing all of the college move-in day pictures online. We think it’s a timeless topic that everyone can relate to. Join us as we discuss the important things to consider when buying furniture – like durability, cost-effectiveness, and style. When it comes to most things in life, you get what you pay for, and furniture is no exception. Furniture is worth the investment, like clothes, and it’s a necessity for most people. Don’t miss this show as we cover mistakes people make when buying furniture, knowing yourself and what you can afford, and taking advantage of OPM (other people’s money.)

Episode 69: Investing in Clothes

Episode 69: Investing in Clothes

September 30, 2021

Clothes: something we all need (unless you want to get arrested.) Some view garments as a fashion statement while others view them as a practicality, serving as protection from the elements. Whatever your view of clothes might be, they’re something we all need. In today’s show, we are discussing how clothes can “make” a person, impacting the way you feel and behave. We’ll then jump right into the investment aspect and how it can be a rewarding experience. Do your outfits provide a return on investment, or are they cheaply made and disposable? For many, buying clothes is an emotional experience that “sparks joy” or relieves stress. Yes, quality typically means expensive. But if investing in nice clothes makes you feel better, makes you comfortable, and you get more use out of them, your wallet and closet will eventually thank you.
