Great podcast, very minor complaint

Great podcast, which I look forward to every week, but … why no album art? Sometimes it appears, more often than not it doesn't. It shows in the iTunes store, but not in iTunes on my Mac or on any device.

Would you lend your parents or other family money?

I listened to this podcast from the lens of someone who understands what it feels like having nothing . Due to job loss and feeling so powerless to even ask
To be in situation were you cannot put food on the table , afford a bus journey, and on medication as result of mental exhaustion .
What you don’t get is how it feels receiving from a family member, knowing your indent for god knows how long. Feeling worthless each time your left to ask. There so much I would like to say about this side of the equation
Maybe you need to know feel what it’s like because to be frank it’s soul destroying and even as I write this I feel intense shame and worthlessness
Trying feeling powerlessness maybe you get it then

Lost its way

Seems to be more interested in gender politics now than giving investing help.
