Money talk finds new audience as podcast puts Gen Xer spin on industry ‘Finances: The Other F Word’ hosts not afraid to tackle tough topics with honesty LAS VEGAS.
The topic of money management gets a gritty, Sin City-style makeover on Mel O and Zoe Terry’s podcast, “Finances: The Other F Word.”
Although finance has traditionally made for a pretty stuffy discussion topic, Mel O and Zoe Terry’s podcast combines Mel O’s background in finances and Zoe Terry’s complete lack of financial acumen— O is a Certified Financial Planner™, while Terry is an attorney — with their fearlessness in taking on tough topics. Calling itself a “A Podcast about Money + Music without the Pretentious Bullshit,” “Finances: The Other F Word” aims to make finances and money management accessible topics for Gen Xers.
Mel O has penned a book, “Finances: The Other F Word – Another F Word To Love,” available from Amazon, for those who “don’t understand finances but need to learn.”
Much like the podcast, the book features a lot of music references along with illustrations to make the topic fun to read about and easy to understand.
“People should enjoy their money,” Mel O said. Episodes of “Finances: The Other F Word” can be accessed at financestheotherfword.com, or on Apple, iHeartRadio, Spotify, YouTube and kilpop.com. Listener discretion is advised.
