Real money lessons from the world of TV and movies

    Parks & Rec Treat Yo Self! | Episode 43

    Parks & Rec Treat Yo Self! | Episode 43

    Did you know that October 13 is officially Treat Yo Self Day?? Parks and Rec characters Donna Meagle and Tom Haverford created this holiday that exists for just one reason: pamper yourself! We talk about whether this is a good concept, what a Treat Yo Self day Carla-and-Robert-style would look like, and also get into the numbers of how much Tom and Donna's day would cost in real life and whether they could afford it. As Tom and Donna would say: "It's the best episode of the year!!"

    Wild – The Cost of Thru-Hiking | Episode 42

    Wild – The Cost of Thru-Hiking | Episode 42

    We've been wanting to cover Wild since we started this podcast. Thru-hiking is near and dear to our hearts, as we attempted to trek all of the PCT in 2019. Though we didn't make the whole way, we had an incredible time and we LOVE backpacking. This week, one of our thru-hiking besties stopped by to talk about all things PCT-related. We talk gear, how to expect the unexpected, how to keep costs low, and what our recommendation for a thru-hike budget is. Whether you are considering a long-distance hike, just want to hear some fun backpacking stories, or maybe you just love a good Scottish accent, this is the episode for you!

    Gilmore Girls – Aptitude Tests and Retirement Psychology | Episode 41

    It's the final episode of our Back To School series! This week, we're covering Season 2, Episode 18 of Gilmore Girls, Back In The Saddle Again. We discuss whether aptitude tests have any merit at all, and delve deeply into the mental health issues that can often follow retirement. We also dig into the oft-quoted statistic that early retirement = early death. Also ... do locker alarms ever make sense??

    Billy Madison – Succession Planning and … Pet Insurance?? | Episode 40

    Billy Madison – Succession Planning and … Pet Insurance?? | Episode 40

    Ohh, Adam Sandler. King of the utterly inane comedy. In keeping with our September Back to School theme, we're covering Billy Madison this week. This comedy may be ridiculous, but the money lessons aren't. We get into how businesses should plan for transitions to the next generation, how to give your kids a good head start in life, and the cost of pet ownership and whether pet insurance is a good call.

    Mean Girls – Salaries of Bartenders, Teachers, Zoologists, and The Cost of Regina’s Lavish Lifestyle | Episode 39

    Mean Girls – Salaries of Bartenders, Teachers, Zoologists, and The Cost of Regina’s Lavish Lifestyle | Episode 39

    We will never stop trying to make fetch happen. In honor of September and a hint of fall weather, we're focusing this month on movies and shows that have a "Back to School" theme, and we're starting with a cult classic: Mean Girls. This hit from the mind of Tina Fey features money tidbits galore. How much do prom dresses cost? How much did Ms. Norbury make as a teacher and was bartending really her best side-hustle choice? How much did Regina's fancy purses and Lexus convertible cost? And finally ... is there a REAL inventor of Toaster Strudel who is fabulously wealthy? We answer all these burning questions and more!

    Catch Me if You Can – How to Be Confident But Not Unethical | Episode 38

    Catch Me if You Can – How to Be Confident But Not Unethical | Episode 38

    We're suckers for a John Williams and Steven Spielberg collab ... but turns out that we were ALL suckers when we watched this movie. Because this film - allegedly based on Frank Abagnale's real cons - is actually just based on Frank Abagnale's lies. None of his claims have been verified and in fact have been directly contradicted. But the completely fictional story of this film is nevertheless compelling and full of great money tidbits. We talk about how confidence affects which jobs we apply for, how checking accounts affect credit scores, and whether appearances affect banks' credit decisions or your success in life overall.
