Professional Issues


A series of free Feed the Pig podcasts was recently launched to educate the public, especially 25- to 34-year-olds, on how to take control of and maintain their finances. “Dealing With Student Loans” was the first of five podcasts featuring Jordan Amin, a young CPA. In this episode, he provides tips and answers questions while speaking with a college graduate about the importance of paying off student loans.

Future podcasts will cover the following topics: Buying Your First Home; Paying Down Debt vs. Saving for the Future; Filing Your Taxes; and Compulsive Spending. Feed the Pig podcast subscriptions are available at www.feedthepig.podomatic.com .

Feed the Pig is an award-winning public-service campaign sponsored by the AICPA and the Ad Council.
