In this episode Chris chats to Professor Tim Kasser about his book Hyper Capitalism.

If spending money on materialistic values doesn't make us happy, what we can do to increase our wellbeing?
What doesn't necessarily motivate us to work harder? Money! Chris, David and Producer Tommo look at the theory behind what will motivate us and how it might change how we look at money. They take a practical look at the areas of financial well-being that link back to motivation and fulfilment in life. We also have listeners questions and the ever popular #tightasstommo tip.

We have some great money saving tips from #tightasstommo the man who never knowingly overspends and plenty of laughs throughout this longer than usual bumper packed episode.
This week Chris, David & Producer Tommo discuss The Pleasure from Delaying Consumption and how planning and waiting for experiences and purchases can increase our well-being.

In this episode Chris has a chat with the founder of the Young Money Blog, Iona Bain. They discuss financial education, challenges younger people face and the importance of establishing saving habits. They also take a look at the pressures on young people from social media and society based expectations, such as keeping up with others and the work/life balance.
