Personal Finance Web Site Launches Podcast Program

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) - Bills.com, a personal finance Web site, has announced the launch of a new podcast program that will address a wide variety of financial-related topics.

The podcast content will cover budgeting tips, debt management strategies, mortgage help, insurance trends and other related issues. All episodes will be available at no charge.

"The podcast is a great resource for visitors to the Bills.com site," says Brad Stroh, co-founder and co-CEO of the company.

Citing unprecedented levels of consumer debt, record foreclosure rates and continued cost of living increases, Stroh is confident the program's content will empower consumers to make the best possible decisions for their finances.

"Personal finance issues, including credit and debt, often can be complex and confusing," he explains. "Using the audio medium, our goal is to make understanding these topics a little bit easier."

Each episode will range from 7 to 10 minutes in length and include financial tips, consumer testimonials and interviews with industry experts. An RSS feed will allow visitors to subscribe to the show's syndicated content or incorporate it into third-party Web sites.

"As with all content at Bills.com, this completely free resource offers a great way for people to learn how to navigate through the complex world of personal finance," Stroh says.
