Intuit's Aggressive Move To Combat Square Cash App

We're kind of all over the place today, but it's well worth a listen or three! We've got a TikTok sorority future CPA's take on managing the millions that her sorority took in, why an interior designer loves doing bookkeeping, how to work two jobs at once, and PwC is (again) delaying return to office. We're diving deep on EY's launching of 150 credit hour effort - but we think maybe we should just cancel 150 hours). We'll also talk new suits, and how Ed Mendlowitz picked a fight with everyone in his recent blog post. We'll ponder over why fintechs are to blame for PPP fraud, and why accountants should audit AI companies, and it strikes again - the "Accounting Firm Xero." In app news, Blue J raises a bunch of money to add artificial intelligence to tax research, and Credit Karma integrates Money with QuickBooks Online. All this, and much more. Take a break from that second or third remote job, and have a listen!
