My Boyfriend Sucks With Money
Hey everyone! Thanks for taking the time to check out the very first episode of our (hopefully) hit podcast “My Boyfriend Sucks with Money”. This podcast is a joint effort between myself (Melanie!) and my awesome boyfriend (Brian), who unfortunately is terrible with money. During our podcast journey, I’m going to try to teach Brian financial literacy and get him on his own path to financial independence!
We set up a Patreon account to help pay for Podcast hosting. There’s no obligation, the podcast itself is free for everyone! But if you love it and want to support our efforts, check out our Patreon page!
This first episode of My Boyfriend Sucks with Money is an introduction to us. We talk a little bit about ourselves and discuss Brian’s relationship with money. Hint: It’s not good! We also talk about our goals for this podcast and for our lives in general.
So, are you ready to listen to our first episode? Check it out!
We are learning as we go on this podcast journey, and we want to be honest with our strengths and weaknesses. And maybe in the process we can help other wannabe podcasters! The first major lesson that we learned is to make sure the sound is correct. Brian is just naturally louder than I am, so it took some work to make sure it didn’t sound like he was yelling at me. The first draft sounded awful, but he edited it down so he didn’t sound so loud. We switched some settings on the microphone for the next recording to fix that!
I also realized that I talk way too fast for audio. I need to slow it down! I’m going to work on that for future episodes. Brian realized that he talks over me on occasion. He gets super excited and wants to add something, which is normal in casual conversation. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come across well over audio. It’s something that we need to work on for future episodes.
What do you think we need to work on for future episodes? We’d love to hear your input and make this podcast better for everyone!
