    Tipping with Tipped Finance's Barbara Sloan

    Barbara Sloan, author of "Tipped: The life changing guide to financial freedom for waitresses, bartenders, strippers, and all other service industry professionals," joins Gaby to talk about a topic we've wanted to cover for a while: tipping and working for tips. In the US, 3 million people work mainly for tips and yet financial advice never takes them into account or gives them practical steps to financial stability. We talk about the minimum and subminimum wage, what patrons can do to be better customers to tipped workers, and how people who work for tips can better save, budget, and control their money.

    Mailbag: American Healthcare Is A Mercurial Elderly Aunt

    Mailbag: American Healthcare Is A Mercurial Elderly Aunt

    Gaby steals from women... just like Don Draper. Lily updates us on her workplace accommodations situation re: ADHD and capitalism. Mal corrects their history of school accommodations based on new information from their mother. A transfemme listener named Claire writes about paying for gender affirming surgeries, adding authorized users to bank accounts and credit cards, and also accuses Mal of being a Boomer in a Millennial's body. Gaby's going to change their name with the same format Taylor Swift used to roll out the track titles for Midnights. Cooper, who is paying for aptitude tests, is back to talk salmon, Playstation 5, and the military. Finley explains blood donation in Canada. Charlie leaves a great voicemail about healthcare that leads to some really great advice. And finally, red rum.

    The True Costs of Abortion: Stephanie Dworak's Story

    The True Costs of Abortion: Stephanie Dworak's Story

    This week, Gaby has the honor of speaking to Stephanie Dworak about the costs of her abortion and the emotional and financial stress of going out of state for the procedure on a child she desperately wanted. In a follow up to the show's childcare costs episode, Stephanie shares her story in hopes of bringing the realities of overturning Roe V Wade to the forefront of the harrowing conversation. (Her experience happened in Nebraska, a state where abortion was legal up to 22 weeks, but still, living it was a nightmare.)

    Cheap Horror and The Shining With Maggie Mae Fish and Mal Blum

    Cheap Horror and The Shining With Maggie Mae Fish and Mal Blum

    Maggie Mae Fish, comedian, horror fan, and descendant of serial killer Albert Fish, joins Gaby and Mal for a special spooky Halloween money episode. We talk about the origins of cheap horror and how it became one of the most affordable genres of movie to make. Gaby does a deep dive on Val Lewton and his stream of iconic low budget horror films from the 1940s. Mal reads a short scary story they wrote as a child called "Ghost Ship" which involves a pirate named Captain Blood. Then, the trio dig into the finances and capitalism of Stanley Kubrick's 1980 classic The Shining. How is work and desperation for work in America depicted? How is Wendy being financially, physically and emotionally abused? How are marginalized people used behind the scenes in the name of men's art?

    tw: murder, domestic abuse, child abuse, child sexual abuse, roofies

    Mailbag: Should A Doctor Tell You If They Recognize You?

    Mailbag: Should A Doctor Tell You If They Recognize You?

    This week, the trans femmes finally write in with costs of transition! Gaby learns in real time that trans surgeries are often denied to fat people. Cooper has three very specific things she wants to better herself. Kate and Caroline validate Mal’s opinions on IUDs. Ashley sends a shocking voicemail about working for commission. We also talk workplace accommodations, trans gynos who know you socially, banking rules, Mal’s turbulent experiences with condoms, and what we were told we should do as jobs when we were in middle school. Plus, the struggle of kink and sex podcasts to make money and get sponsorships. 

    Tw: surgery, needles, transphobia, kink, fatphobia

Bad w/ Money is fun and funny

Found Gaby’s work through another great pod, TTFA and ever since I’ve been hooked! This pod offers relatable money advice that I feel is realistic for the average listener. I love hearing popular finance advice debunked and dethroned, about listeners with similar struggles to mine in the mailbags, and Gaby + Mal’s general banter!

Long time listener leaving

I’ve been listening from the start and really enjoyed the info and Gaby, but now it’s all listener feedback, mailbags, opinions on top of opinions, and every guest is the same.
Adding Mal was a bad idea, sorry. But they don’t add anything educational to the show…I feel like I’m just listening to a couple hanging out and loudly laughing in my ears now.
And I get that this is a progressive podcast, I’m wildly liberal myself, but Gaby has gone off the far-left cliff so that every moment of every episode has to be clocked for potential triggers, homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism, classism, ageism, ableism, and mental illness. I believe all of those issues are valid and respect them, but Gaby can’t make it through one conversation without mentioning at least 5 of them, so now every episode sounds exactly the same.
There’s a big audience for this type of talk, and I was there too in my late 20s, but I’m moving on to broader podcasts that discuss money and culture that still believe in these issues, but don’t have to limit their entire podcast around them.
