Wondering where you’ll score the hottest deals in tech this holiday season? Bridget Caret, Senior Editor at CNET joins us in the basement to share news on drones, televisions, game systems, home speakers, lights, wearables, and more. She’ll not only share the BEST holiday items, but also help you navigate away from a few hot devices that might not end up being the big savings you’re hoping to score at the store this Black Friday.
Plus, in our headlines segment, we discuss news about a politician who’s lying about his net worth. Why is this important? Why would someone lie about how much money they have? What does it have to do with YOUR money? We’ll share. Also, we’ll reveal which retailer this holiday season is selling WAY over the top merchandise. Need a gift for the person who has everything AND want to spend WAY too much money on it? We’ve got you covered.
We’ll of course have more from the world of financial planning, throw out the Haven Life line to lucky listener Kate, who wonders what to do with some company stock, score with some of Doug’s delightful trivia, and more.
