I mentioned the other day that I participated in an interview for a Wall Street Journal podcast, the Tech News Briefing E-Report. This service is seemingly accessible only to paid Wall Street Journal subscribers only1, but the RSS feed and the podcasts within are open to the public.
To listen to the podcast episode containing my interview, either subscribe to the podcast RSS feed and look for the item entitled, “The company that published TV Guide is being acquired…” or use this direct link to the audio [mp3]. Here are the time stamps relevant to the interview.
06:07 E-Report introduction
06:47 Checking security before using your credit card online
08:48 Shopping online with familiar offline retailer vs. online-only retailer
10:26 Shopping online with debit cards
12:12 Shopping online with PayPal
12:54 Offline retailers offering discounts when using store credit cards
Most of what I talk about is basic information about shopping online, but some of my comments about store credit cards may be controversial amongst people who give financial advice.
