Open your banking app and scroll through your transactions. How many subscription services are you paying for? If you're like the average Australian, it's probably quite a lot.

From entertainment and streaming services like Netflix and Spotify, meal delivery services like Marley Spoon or HelloFresh to our energy bills and mobile plans, there are more than a few regular charges hitting every one of our transaction accounts each month.

On this episode of Pocket Money, we welcome Dr. Paul Harrison to unpack the mysteries of subscription services, and how our brain and behaviour can be influenced. We discuss why businesses are shifting their models, how you should decide what's valuable to you, and what you can do to unsubscribe from your own subscription overload.
