What’s cryptocurrency? Why can’t kids have jobs? Why is our money green? These are just a few of the questions explored in Million Bazillion, a podcast that teaches kids about business and the economy. In each episode, hosts Bridget Bodnar and Ryan Perez answer a question that kids have asked about money.
Many adults weren’t educated about money when they were young, Bodnar says. And that’s where the idea for Million Bazillion started. The show’s motto is “We help dollars make more sense.” Bodnar says, “We wanted to have a show that could talk about economic concepts to a younger audience. You may have asked your parents about these things, but they don’t always have an answer that makes sense.”
Perez says learning about finance now will pay off down the road. “I hope the show can make money an easier part of your life,” he says, “so that when you grow up, you can focus on other things instead of worrying about money all the time.” Now that makes sense.
