After a month-long break from podcasting, I’m back along with my wife Michele to talk about what we’ve been up to.
You might say we now have something in common with Mr. and Mrs. Roper from the old Three’s Company sitcom: We’re now landlords.
A recent Wall Street Journal report says becoming a landlord might be a smart move for retirees. But we think it’s even smarter to do it in your 30s.
We also explore a disturbing trend this year for summer job-seeking teens: The old fogeys are absorbing many of the low-wage summer jobs that would otherwise go to teenagers.
During the show, Michele and I look back on our own summer jobs back when we were teens during the late ’80s and early ’90s, back when jobs were much easier to come by. Michele flipped burgers, and I was an awkward radio DJ. Ah, the good old days….
We hear a recent CBS News report about a teen who’s trying to find a summer job to help pay for a community college education.
My question: What’s the freaking point? Why get a job, to pay for a diploma, that is supposed to help you get another job, when such jobs do not seem to be in abundance these days? And why go to college if you don’t yet know what you want to do with the degree? Michele and I both sound off on the issue.
