Last Monday I teamed up with Jim from Bargaineering to bring you the first episode of The Personal Finance Hour, our weekly BlogTalkRadio program all about money management. We had fun with this live podcast, and it was great to interact with listeners via chat and on the phone.

Tune in Monday, March 30th, at 3pm Pacific (6pm Eastern) for another rousing edition of The Personal Finance Hour. Our topic this week is emergency funds: how we’ve built them, and how we use them.

There are two ways to hear the show. You can listen through an audio feed at the show page, or you can dial the call-in number at (347) 327-9144. The online feed will be slightly delayed, but the telephone audio will be live. (If I can figure out how, I’ll post the show “widget” here so that you can listen to it at GRS.)

Added fun! The show page will feature a live chatroom while we’re broadcasting, so that you can ask questions and leave comments in real-time. Last week we had 40-50 listeners adding to the fun.

Jim and I intend to do this every Monday — possibly with guests! — and we hope you’ll join us. We think this will be a fun way to connect with readers and to help everyone learn more about money management. We had a great start last week, and believe we’ll get even better with time.
