Why Every Student Should Tune Into “Financially Inclined”

Here in ACC’s Student Money Management Office, we’re always on the lookout for the best resources, tools, and tips to help you navigate your money journey. Recently, we’ve been catching up on episodes of “Financially Inclined,” a podcast series from Marketplace that provides some pretty great insights into the world of personal finance. My favorite episode so far is “Money is Emotional” – not a topic you’d find in many personal finance textbooks. But, it’s a reality: Our emotions play a significant role in our financial decisions, be it impulse buying or the anxiety of saving for the future. “Financially Inclined” dives deep into the emotional side of money, helping listeners understand and manage their financial feelings.

“Financially Inclined” isn’t just about understanding the technicalities of managing money.
