How much thinking have you done about money since the pandemic started? How much you’ve got, how much you’ve lost, how much you’ve saved, how much you’re entitled to, how much you’ll need to get through to whenever this thing ends?! In this episode Penny Terry takes a look at how this pandemic has affected the money that is going in and out of our bank accounts, and in and out of our communities. We get into the nitty gritty of actually looking at your spending with financial planner Nick D’Emden from Findex in Launceston. Sarah from the Low Head Tourist park shares a little about how she’s re-looking at her future business opportunities. Mental health clinician Caroline Thain helps us with those tricky money conversations, and also gets us wondering how we continue to care about this pandemic even when, at some stages, it can feel gone. We then catch up again with Dr Nicolas Hookway, sociologist and Senior Lecturer at the University of Tasmania about how we can create better community structures to help us live well during a pandemic into the future. Plus some thoughts from our favourite fitness instructor Kylie Moore and real estate agent Maureen Lacey about how we prepare for the future.
