Financially Inclined from Marketplace Just Released Episode 3!

This week's episode of the "Financially Inclined" podcast is exactly what your students are itching to learn about: credit cards! As we plan Season 2, we'd love to get your students' voices featured. Please share these submission details with your students ASAP as the deadline for submissions is May 31, 2023.

TikTok sensation @Johnefinance spills all the tea on getting his first credit card at 21 years old and even gets Yanely to share her credit card story from her first year in college. Let's just say, her credit score has been on one wild roller coaster ride!

From different types of credit cards to determining if you're ready for the responsibility, this discussion covers it all. But it's not just about the general stuff; they also dive into the nitty-gritty details of applying for a credit card and how to avoid those pesky monthly interest charges.

Help your students level up their financial game with this episode by using the educational resources in these teacher slides as a classroom activity or for homework. Check out the YouTube version of episode 3 below:
