I recently bought a used Mini Cooper from a local car dealer. I did some things right, and I did some things wrong. All this aside, the entire car-buying experience makes for a great discussion topic, so that’s what Jim and I plan to tackle Monday afternoon on the fifth episode of The Personal Finance Hour, a BlogTalkRadio program all about personal finance. You can catch it live at 3pm Pacific (6pm Eastern).

During this episode, Jim and I will be discussing our car-buying experiences. Jim has purchased vehicles from eBay. Mostly, I buy new. What about you? We encourage you to call with your comments or questions.

There are three 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. You can also listen through this widget:

Note that the widget always holds the archive of the most recent episode. So, right now it contains last week’s episode. Monday afternoon it will contain episode number five.

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. Each week, we’ve had about dozens of 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.

Update! We’re now on iTunes! You can subscribe to The Personal Finance Hour as a weekly podcast by following this link (which will open iTunes).
