IBJ Podcast: Pete the Planner answers questions about retirement, college savings, mortgages


Host Mason King and the folks in the Midtown Parents Facebook Group in Indianapolis have a lot of questions about money—specifically how they should be saving it for retirement and college.

Should homeowners pay off a mortgage early? How do you plan for the future when one partner in a relationship is significantly older than the other? Should you prioritize retirement savings over college savings for your kids?

So Mason asked IBJ personal finance columnist Peter “Pete the Planner” Dunn to come on the podcast to get some answers to those questions and others.
