    Farmers Are Problematic?

    This week on the show, Gaby reads your emails about working from home, the FIRE movement in NZ, becoming millions of dollars in debt by taking over your dad’s farming business, and some ethical investing woes. Then, the life insurance discord discussion continues and a lovely review spawns a new merch idea. The mailbags are getting wildly specific!

    Can A Documentary Use My Dead Dad's Story Without Paying Me?

    Can A Documentary Use My Dead Dad's Story Without Paying Me?

    Gaby discusses work from home becoming permanent and an article about a developer that is buying up all the property in LA's Koreatown. (Support KnockLA.com!) Then, a listener writes in to say a documentary company has been trying to get her to give them information and leads for free regarding her dead dad's involvement as a witness in a famous crime. What should she charge them? A Facebook commenter corrects a misconception about nylon and landfills regarding our Fast Fashion episode, and another praises our long-term couples episode and gives their 2022 money resolution. And finally, some love for our intro song, a listener's story about making big changes in 2021, some questions about neurodivergence, escrow/property taxes, sexy sex episodes, life insurance as a scam, and a lovely invitation to visit Tucson.

    Most Searched Money Terms for 2021

    Most Searched Money Terms for 2021

    This week, Gaby discusses the most searched for money terms of the past year, including 'black-owned' and 'monthly subscriptions for moms.' Then, we hear a voicemail from a listener on his financial New Years' resolution to eradicate shame. They also read an email from a listener who hilariously doesn't want to pay taxes as a hairdresser and another useful email from a former stock manager at a big clothing brand about choosing ethical clothing. This week, you all are pure chaos!

    Couples and Money ft. Damona Hoffman and Kaley Klemp

    Couples and Money ft. Damona Hoffman and Kaley Klemp

    Happy holidays! A sometimes stressful time for couples going into the new year! This week, we're interviewing Kaley Klemp, the co-author of The 80-80 Marriage, about coming at relationships with radical generosity rather than "fairness" and how to structure money in a long-term relationship or marriage. Why do partners resent each others' successes instead of seeing all achievements as good for the team? And how do you still protect your own assets in this kind of partnership? Plus, what is KaJoNa? Then, Gaby talks to dating coach Damona Hoffman about paying for premium dating accounts, the idea of the "gold digger" vs. the "breadwinner" (thanks Kacey Musgraves!) and why she thinks true love is more important than finances in the modern era.

    Fast Fashion Debates, Student Loan Extension, and Amazon Tornado Safety

    Fast Fashion Debates, Student Loan Extension, and Amazon Tornado Safety

    This episode is jam packed with fast fashion debates and comments agreeing and disagreeing with the episode Gaby did on the topic. Then, we talk about Biden's last minute student loan repayment pause extension, the end of the child tax credit, and a listener's critique on what really needs to change in the wake of the Amazon warehouse deaths -- tornado safety. Finally, a wealthy woman who is giving away her fortune, the communist urge to wear a jumpsuit every day, and preventing student loan debt by asking colleges to just LOWER tuition prices.

Best Financial (and fun) Podcast

I've been listening to Bad with Money for years and I am always learning new things from it. My dad worked in finance and I actually briefly worked in finance as well right after graduate school, so I'm generally familiar with financial terminology. But Gaby's podcast is amazing because they not only break down these concepts so that I can REALLY understand them, they bring in guests who have new and unique perspectives on these issues. They are so encouraging, funny, and brilliant - this podcast is great for financial novices as well as "oh sure yeah I know what that means..." finance adjacent fakers like me.

Great With Money ,

Intro Song is a Absolute Banger

I’m not bad with money. I’ve been a financial expert since before the show started. I find myself laughing out loud at the negative money experiences and past bad decisions of Gabby and her guests quite frequently, and am amused at how much they need to simplify concepts for their target audience. However, such people really do exist, since financial education in America is quite weak. Such beginners need an approachable on-ramp to financial literacy, which Gaby provides in spades. As a side effect of Gaby providing this valuable service, I get to enjoy some sweet sweet schadenfreude. Plus, the intro song is an absolute banger: the best of any podcast out there. I usually replay it several times once the episode starts in my feed, because it’s just so darn fun to sing along with. 5 stars!

Kathryn the Smasher ,

Awesome

I have been listening to this podcast for years and I have learned so much about personal finance and structural inequities. I love the balance of helping myself and how to smash the patriarchy to help others. Give it a listen!
