Let the friendly voice of YourLifeChoices’ latest Mind Your Own Retirement podcast get your Australia Day 2020 off to a relaxing start.
Today, it’s the John and Janelle show. First up, they chat with Jonathan Brown, consumer advocate at CHOICE. He explains how we can take charge of 2020: by getting on the front foot and demanding better prices – for everything, giving your health insurance a health check, getting your heating and cooling bills under control and even auditing your pantry – a novel but excellent idea!
If you’ve been putting off the annual visit to your GP – or maybe, like so many men, you’re not even going annually – then Dr Kieran Kennedy is just the person to boost your confidence. He lifts the lid on the other side of those often embarrassing (for us) body checks.
Finally, travel editor Leon has been on the phone checking with tourist authorities around the country to gain an understanding of what we can do next to help. It’s a long way back for so many communities and regions, but older Australians can play a pivotal role, he says.
