That Mint Finale

It’s a sad day. The most riotous, educational and ridiculous financial podcast is coming to an end, and we’re seeing it off with a bang (of corks popping)! You can listen in as Cathi and Jo reminisce about their favourite moments from the past three years and realise that the verbal Will that Jo made in a past episode still remains as her only legal wishes on record…  

The main topic for discussion in this episode is life insurance – Cathi’s monthly premium is more expensive than Jo’s, but why? Join them to find out whether it is better to buy life insurance earlier or later in life, as well as why Jo won’t pay for Cathi’s body to be shipped home from overseas after death (except she probably would). 

Listen to Jo’s predictions for the next couple of years on inflation, interest rates and the housing market (bubbles bursting anyone?) and see if any come true. Not necessarily connected, but they also discuss the myth that people that work in finance know what they are doing. 

Find out the end of Naina’s house buying journey – did she ever get her dressing room? She also gives some top tips to consider on the road to buying a first property; particularly around a surprise purchase of a towel rail. 

See the look of surprise on Mark’s (big boss producer) face as he is interviewed on camera about what he has learnt from three years of doing the podcast and discover why he wants a Viking funeral. 

And we end, as always with an exciting entry in the Quid Game hall of fame – this time titled “Out of Context Jo”, where we learn the important advice: don’t stick a frozen potato up your bum and why Cathi would make the best Chancellor of the Exchequer. 


It’s that time of the month where we sit back, relax and enjoy the laughter, singing and finance debunking, in a new episode
