Love this podcast!

I love this podcast so much. Gaby always keeps me laughing. This podcast is so relatable and brutally honest about a lot of things that people don’t want to talk about. I don’t always agree with her, but I love her confidence and the many different kinds of people she interviews. I hope we get a lot more seasons!

Thanks but no thanks.

I wanted to like this show; I’d heard good things about it and I liked the premise. However, now I’m not so sure. I started listening to it just recently, and began with the most recent episode: “How’s Gaby Doing?” It made sense in my brain at the time. In that episode, she interviews her parents. Her mom raises the concern that Gaby has exaggerated their wealth (or poverty) for the show and gives examples: wearing a 4th of July shirt all year because it was Gaby’s choice, not because they couldn’t afford other clothing. Gaby concedes on this and a few other points. Being that this was my first intro, I wasn’t familiar with the overall context this concern originated from. Then I go to listen to her first episode. Yes, she definitely bemoans being raised poor and having to wear a holiday shirt for a whole year (again, we later find out it was by CHOICE). Her mom also mentions that Gaby went to summer camp. Poor families don't send their kids to summer camp. And while her parents acknowledge they weren’t the smartest with their money, her upbringing was not as dramatic as Gaby made it seem. I focus on this because it seems to be the whole premise of why Gaby is bad with money.
I, too, am bad with money. But I know better than to blame my parents, or anyone else for that matter. I know better than to talk down to my parents in a condescending manner to appear more experienced for my show. And while these factors may seem trivial, it has made me doubt her expertise, her handle on reality, and her overall character (she also touts that she doesn’t read these comments/reviews in a very “f*ck the haters” kind of way which just wreaks of arrogance).
Overall, this podcast struck an unsettling chord with me, her manner of entitlement, and so on, and has been deleted from my library.

Very good 👌🏻

I’m about to finish the first season and so far I looooove this podcast. If you are listening to this podcast to get very specific financial advice, that’s not really what this podcast is about. Like Gaby says, money is personal and this podcast is all about personal stories that revolve around people’s careers and money. The purpose of this podcast is to rid the listeners of their own shame about their lack of knowledge or experience around money and to give examples of how people of different backgrounds found their paths. It’s truly motivating. Unlike some listeners, I don’t think that it’s defeatist, I think it’s a call to take the initiative and understand the system that you live in.
