What do we think were the hottest topics of the week? What were the most interesting topics? What have you missed on FinTekNeeks in the past? Every Friday, we review some of the stories that we find interesting, which may or may not be related to finance. In addition, we feature some of our past content that you may have missed. Finally, we preview our podcast for the week. Always remember, the early bird gets the worm – not every podcast is available indefinitely.

I’ve seen the same pattern with myself, as I liked sports in the past, but no longer care about it at all, or have any interest in seeing any of it.
In this week’s upcoming podcast, we’ll be covering the following questions that have raised concerns:
We’ll also be reviewing the content for the week with some additional bonus information.
