On the Season 3 debut of the Perfect Cents Podcast, Alex & Brit tackle a topic at the front of everyone's mind... inflation. 

During the Professional Experts segment our hosts are joined by Jonathan Downes, Financial Education Specialist & Content Designer. Together they help define common inflation terms and explain some of the main factors that can affect the rate of inflation, at any given time.

In the Best Solutions segment, Alex & Brit share practical strategies to help YOU save money on groceries, transportation and utilities during times of increased inflation. They also share resources to provide listeners with some peace of mind, as we all adjust to a higher cost of living. 

Because doing a little bit of planning and preparation to fight inflation, just makes Perfect Cents!
