Money Diaries provide a unique window into the way women across the world save and spend, which is why we launched Canadian Money Diaries today, starting with a week-in-the-life of a 24-year-old Torontonian, making $40,000 a year while paying off $32,000 in student loans and trying to save for a laptop. But Money Diaries also illuminate the commonalities many of us share in our daily lives, no matter where we live or how much we make per paycheque.
This is especially apparent when it comes to waking up in the morning and getting to work. Most of us have to deal with less-than-ideal commutes to work — be they by car, subway, or foot. OPs (original posters) often talk about the ways they pass this time: with music, books, or, most frequently, podcasts.
From true crime, to Real Housewives gossip, to good ol' interviews, our Money Diarists' podcast tastes run the gamut. Here's a roundup of some of the tried and true favourites our global diarists listen to while getting ready in the morning and commuting to work.
