It’s time for a Friday Flight! These episodes are all about the week’s news and the effects of the pandemic on your personal finances. There are a lot of headlines out there, but we are distilling it down to specific takeaways that will allow you to not just weather this health and financial crisis, but to come out on the other side even stronger. In this episode we cover some interesting and helpful stories like: stimulus check delays, new data saying that Roth IRAs stink and why we disagree, life without Amazon, Flexible Spending Account (FSA) changes in the new relief bill, harsher prison sentences for illegal streaming, a new streaming aggregator service, dirty debt collection tactics, as well as paid time off and sabbaticals.
