Quincy, MA (PRWEB) August 10, 2007
Paying for college has never been easy. Too many students and families say they can't understand the financial aid maze at all, fear making costly mistakes, and end up paying thousands more for college than necessary. The Financial Aid Podcast, an internet radio show, has been broadcasting a helping hand to families for over two years and is celebrating its 600th episode on Friday, August 10, 2007.
Financial Aid Podcast founder and host Christopher Penn said, "The main reason to listen to the show is to learn how to pay for college and manage your money well. We aim to explain the financial aid process and make it easy to understand for our listeners, in about 15 minutes a day."
"Being on the air for 600 episodes is another milestone reached for the show. We've sent kids back to college, talked to the leading experts in the financial aid industry, given away thousands of dollars in scholarships in partnership with the Student Loan Network and helped families save money and avoid scams every weekday," added Penn.
The Financial Aid Podcast is a downloadable internet radio show, or podcast, that listeners can tune into using a computer with an Internet connection. No iPod or MP3 player is required to listen, and the show is broadcasted every weekday morning for free on the Internet. Listeners can tune in by visiting http://www.FinancialAidPodcast.com and listening on the web site or in free music software such as Apple's iTunes.
