The Current Balance Podcast

Money affects every part of our lives - our work, our relationships, even our physical health. But, for some reason, we just don't talk about it. Pillar Credit Union wants to change that with our new resource for your financial fitness, Current Balance. The Current Balance Podcast is one part of this effort to have a real conversation about money and all the ways it impacts your life. Current Balance includes in-depth articles, reviews of the latest financial management books and apps, delicious money-saving recipes, and more.
