The Money Stories Podcast aims to get Catholics talking about their money because we learn best by listening to stories. In this podcast, Caitlyn Kano, AFC FFC, will interview fellow Catholics who have a money story to tell. The truth is that most of our financial issues are not unique. We just think they are because we don’t talk about them. Together, we can benefit by sharing personal stories of becoming faithful financial stewards.
