This week on Flash Talks Cash, Flash and Andrew talk all about mortgages, specifically what it means to obtain and pay off a mortgage in the post-collapse world of 2010. Flash advises how you can be ready for the admittedly "tight road" ahead, where bankers are holding onto their mortgages tighter than ever before. Plus Flash and Andrew read the first listener entry into the "Creative Accountant" segment: a story of a small town, urban renewal, and political intrigue. This episode was sponsored by Acme Smoked Fish: a mainstay of NYC's culinary landscape for decades.
