    Gaby And Mal Elope, Scary Plasma Side Effects, and Knowing You're Gonna Be Fired

    Gaby And Mal Elope, Scary Plasma Side Effects, and Knowing You're Gonna Be Fired

    New co-host Mal is in a defeatist mood that Gaby has to pull them out of. First, a listener writes in, confused as to whether or not her and her partner's marriage would be repealed if the Supreme Court overturns Obergerfell v Hodges. Mal gives realistic and vulnerable advice to a listener with ADHD on how to budget when it seems impossible. What does one do when the world, and especially the world of money, isn't built for your neurodivergence? Colleen from Ohio shares a voicemail about preparing for the expenses of a beloved animal's end of life care. Hannah then shares her positive experiences selling plasma for extra money, until a rare side effect scared her off for good. Chelsea asks for help because she accidentally found out she's about to be fired. SOS. Alexa says her dad, a liberal landlord, would be happy to be a guest on the show, Katie asks for an episode on ethical landlording when a renter is disabled, and Liz tells a harrowing story that might just be about lead paint in a rental property. (Ok, it's more nuanced than that.) And more!

    This week, Gaby and journalist Cerise Castle explain the real life unexplained and mysterious 1987 Wall Street crash and the TV show based on it, Showtime's "Black Monday." To this day, the events surrounding the complete global stock market decimation in the late 80s have never been uncovered. Cerise and Gaby teach you everything we know about what happened, what changed the world, and why. Cerise also shares her knowledge about the War on Drugs, Iran-Contra, Freeway Rick Ross, Gary Webb's Code of Silence, and the CIA's involvement in the crack epidemic. They also break down being Black and being a woman (or both) on Wall Street and what that experience is like, in real life research and also as portrayed in the 2019 comedy.

Love love love this show! Both Gaby’s podcast and book Bad with Money have helped me navigate the money world more than anything else. They give practical real world advice and also help give voice to diverse perspectives on the ways that our system is messed up but also how we can move forward and challenge those systems. I love the mailbag episodes so much - I feel like it’s an office hours and Gabys the cool professor helping answer all the questions but also encouraging listeners to live their best lives.

Stick to what you know

Stick to teaching your audience about money and how money works in America. That was the original goal of the show and you did well. Do not ask your audience for content and then turn around and call them racist, homophobic, transphobic. It’s shallow and bland and easy for you. Gross.

JBULUT ,

Fantastic!

This show is…fantastic!! Super helpful.
