Episode 0: Welcome to My Personal Finances PodCat

Introduction episode of My Personal Finances PodCat hosted by Catherine. In her virgin podcast, Catherine introduces PodCat and Cat (herself). She then shares why you should watch PodCat and the future destinations of PodCat – money talk, money action, and all that pop rock.

Editor’s Jottings: Rawrrr! Our first intro episode (episode 0) of PodCat is out! It’s been a ride setting up all the equipment from acoustic foam, cameras + tripods, studio lights and even heavy curtains (thanks Lazada!). Cat landed right on her feet despite it being a monologue (and likely the only PodCat episode ever without a guest). A few things to improve on include the camera angles, captioning, and not forgetting to include the episode number + title when introducing the episode.

A BIG MEOW out to the MyPF Digital team with major props to our sound engineer Jerry. Also not forgetting members of the MyPF Web team and members of the Personal Finances and Investing Community (especially Daniel and Chungsoon) for their feedback on the prerelease.

Bonus: Action Cat – Globetrotter and Fitness Freak @catherinetan_0101

Episode 1: Transforming the Financial Landscape

Catherine interviews the founder and CEO of MyPF, Stephen Yong in Episode 1 of My Personal Finances PodCat. Cat asks her human boss on What’s MyPF’s raison d’être (reason for existence), and how is MyPF transforming the financial landscape in Malaysia. They then gaze into a crystal ball together on what lies in the future of MyPF.

Editor’s Jottings: We kick off the MyPF PodCat with an interview with our founder Stev himself. Lots of room for improvement including the camera angles (focus on one cam instead of trying to look at the other cam / prompters / everywhere!) We also apologize gomenasai for all folks who can’t super-speed read. We actually lengthened the walls of text (the white background extra info references in the video) BUT accidentally mixed the audio with the earlier version.

We were debating as well whether to release it this week (being Raya holidays) but decided to proceed as planned (Thanks Jerry for the hard work!).

Overall, we are pretty happy with the Episode 1 and we hope you enjoy the video. We continue to look forward to future episodes interviewing various folks on various areas and with further improvements. Hasta pronto (See you soon in case you still refuse to watch the video with subtitles)!
