Before we get to the guest portion of the show this week I thought I’d fill ya’ll in on some developments in our podcasts’ happenings. Apparently the word on the street is that you actually want to hear us talk a little bit more. This actually surprised as we figured we would be doing everyone a disservice if we made you wade through our tangents before you got to the great stuff our guests are bringing to the table every week. Well, on the More Money for Beer and Textbooks Podcast we give the people what they want, so you’ll hear us do some more podcast together in the upcoming weeks, and we’ll throw in some chats before we get to our guests. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
We Have Pronghorns in Canada?On today’s podcast we welcomed Robb Engen to our luxurious studio here at the More Money for Beer and Textbooks Headquarters. Robb and his financial adviser of a mother run a pretty cool personal finance blog over at BoomerandEcho.com. During the day he works for Lethbridge University in a marketing capacity – Go Pronghorns!
Robb is also one of Canada’s foremost credit card experts. Don’t worry, we’re not going to subject you to another parent-themed rant about why credit cards are the devil. Instead we’ll shoot a few tips your way about how to use these things right, and how to choose a student credit card that suits you.
If you click on the link above or head on over and get the download on iTunes, you’ll hear us chat about:
- How to choose a credit card that fits you
- Why people who think students shouldn’t have credit cards are wrong
- “Credit cards don’t kill bank accounts, people kill bank accounts”
- What students should look for at their bank
- Going away to school and how that affects your finances
- Some things to think about if you are near graduation
If you haven’t already done so, you can skip listening to the podcast off of this page every week and simply subscribe to our podcast on iTunes.

As always, we’re always to get any feedback on the podcast either as comments here at the site, or over at iTunes. If you have anything you particularly would like to hear about, let us know and we’ll cover it for you. Have a great week.
