Is the FIRE movement dying? One blogger says that it might be, so we bring in our crack team of Paula Pant, Len Penzo and The Other Guy...and well, you'll have to listen to hear whether they agree, won't you? Plus, some bad news out of Bank of America. A popular free checking account is going away. Our contributors may give you some better options if you're looking for a new home for your banking.

Speaking of better, we're excited to introduce you to a FinTech company called Better. This mortgage company simplifies the mortgage process. CEO Vishal Garg will not only share his story, but he'll also walk us through how it works.

We'll answer someone's three-oh call for help to the Blooom hotline. On top of that, we'll also answer a letter from the mail bag, share Doug's groundhog related trivia, and more.
