Queering Money (aka God Forbid We Have To Think About Something)
In the season two finale, Gaby talks to a range of people from the parts of American financial culture the system would rather not think about: queer, black, gender non-conforming thinkers like Alaina Monts, former sex workers like Chris Zeishchegg (aka Danny Wylde), trans financial advisers like Natalie Miller, and proud polyamorous writers like Carolyn Yates and Erin Judge.
What If You're F*cked? (aka No, Seriously - What Then?)
What happens if you find yourself in a situation where practical financial advice doesn't apply? This week, Gaby explores a variety of money quandaries without easy answers: long-term freelance work (with Manjula Martin), identity theft (with Kathryn McCauley), bipolar disorder (with Julie Fast), and substance abuse recovery (with Wade Berstler). Find Manjula's work at http://manjulamartin.com, and Julie's writing at http://juliefast.com. Read more about Wade here: . (TW: Discussion of bipolar disorder)
Stone Cold Good Damn Reasons (aka Tips and Tricks)
Gaby attempts to balance practical financial advice with her growing sense that the entire financial system is irreparably busted. Along the way, Sarah Wilson (youtube.com/budgetgirl), Bobbi Rebell (author of "How to be a Financial Grownup"), and Jean Chatzky (The Today Show) provide some actual practical advice you can use between freakouts about the dire state of the American financial system.
Jane Mayer's "Dark Money" (aka We're All Going to Die)
Gaby's in a panic after reading Jane Mayer's Dark Money - and you should be, too. Jane joins Gaby for a deep-dive into the sinister inner workings of political messaging and the billionaires who fund it - with catastrophic results for poor and marginalized people all across the country. Jane is a staff writer for The New Yorker , where she first began the reporting on the influence of money in politics which led to the publication of Dark Money .
There's No Magic (aka Retirement)
Gaby explores the conundrum of saving for retirement. So much of the rhetoric around retirement has to do with rewarding yourself for a life of hard work - but what if you can barely afford to live your life in the present? Why should you bother fixating on the future? Featuring Bola Sokunbi (clevergirlfinance.com), Ken Raskin (Allison's dad), and Piggy and Kitty of bitchesgetriches.com.
