FIRE & Chill is a podcast about how to reach financial independence and retire early (FIRE) in Australia.
Each fortnight, I get together with my friend Pat from Life Long Shuffle and we break down everything from saving, spending, investments and living a great life.
UPDATE: Due to ASIC's guidelines for financial content creators, we have decided to stop producing the podcast. You can continue to listen to all previous episodes on this page.
