Listen, Money Matters is back! We have a new host, former guest Thomas Frank of College Info Geek. We’re excited to kick of Season Two. We missed you!
There have been some changes to LMM since our last episode but we are more committed than ever to being your one stop, go to resource for all things finance.
If you’ve been a listener to the show for awhile, you’ll remember Thomas Frank from episodes about money mindfulness, how to choose the best cell phone plan, and our round table discussion dedicated to saving money on college.
Thomas is a recent college graduate and has run the site College Info Geek, a blog, podcast, and youtube channel that teaches you to get the most out of college life. Thomas has run the site for a little more than four years. For the past two, it has been his full time job and he makes a good living from it.
Thomas is just 23 years old and will bring a bit of a younger perspective to our show. He is also ruthlessly efficient with his time and crazy productive which is something we think will bring value to our audience.
Getting over “I don’t feel like it” has been what pushed Thomas forward. The work doesn’t have to be perfect in the beginning, you just have to get it out there. That is the hardest part, fine tuning can come later. Building the habit is what matters.

A goal for LMM in Season Two is to make this a community project. We reached out to some listeners who will be contributing to the show and site in various ways. If you would like to be involved, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be using Slack, a team chat site where we can all communicate in one place.
We appealed to you for donations and we were overwhelmed and grateful. Along with the donations were many e-mails encouraging us to continue with the show. Once Andrew broke even, he gave the remaining donations to Donor’s Choose. It’s a site that helps teachers fund materials for their classes that the schools don’t have the money to provide.
Some things we’ll be doing going forward include an investing book, animated videos, courses organized from our existing material, and what we really look forward to is matching members of our audience in a mentor/mentee relationship. If you are interested in that, please e-mail us. Also let us know what you want out of Season Two. This is your show too.
We’re so glad to be back. Here’s to a new season and a new year.
