Though I hope you do subscribe using one of the above methods, don’t worry – each episode will be featured in its own post, much like this one, on Tuesday afternoons. The podcast itself may appear earlier than that, however, if you subscribe using one of the above forms, but the notes won’t appear until I post about it here on The Simple Dollar.

Episode Notes
Here are some additional notes that go alongside the comments in the podcast. Approximate times for the corresponding links and notes are listed.

0:00 – The theme song is a snippet of a Camper van Beethoven concert on October 25, 1986, shared via their very open taping policy. Listen to the concert in its entirety.
0:24 – A peek at the early years of our marriage.
1:11 – Smart Couples Finish Rich is a very good book for couples to read.
3:32 – Should a couple combine their finances? I was as unsure then as I am now.
6:01 – Some thoughts on setting goals together in a marriage.
9:42 – Here are some good general tips for a successful marriage.
11:30 – A preview of next week.

One thing I’d like to do in a future episode is have an audio reader’s mailbag. If you have a microphone on your computer and can record an MP3 of a simple, short question you might have on personal finance, careers, pop culture, or anything else you’d like me to answer, record it as an MP3 and send it to me. Keep the total recording under 15 seconds, please. Also, if you use Skype, feel free to ask your question that way – my username is trenttsd.

    That was great info. I love David Bach. He is extremely intelligent and down to earth. Read Automatic Millionaire and fell in love with his practices.

    As my girlfriend and I move to our new destination, I am strongly considering purchasing Smart Couples Finish Rich.

    Thanks for the advice….

    Well wishes
