    BONUS: "What can I do to prepare for life in a post-Roe world?"

    In a good timeline, no one would have to prepare for a post-Roe world. Reproductive rights would be safely enshrined in our constitution, where they belong. Plus, ice cream would never melt.
    Unfortunately, last week’s news made it abundantly clear that we’re in a crappy timeline. I accepted this news with horror, but not surprise. My faith in my elected representatives is as melty as a tub of Americone Dream left on the counter overnight.
    But this isn’t the time to despair. It’s time to take action. Someone gave us the incredible gift of forewarning. We have two months to prepare. And there’s a lot of steps you can take to protect yourself and others in your community from the appalling consequences of forced childbirth.
    Piggy and I hopped on an impromptu recording session to help our readers and listeners steel themselves for the fall of Roe v. Wade. And I’m thrilled to say we left our aimless thrashing and redundant moralizing on the cutting room floor! (Mostly.) What remained were actionable steps to help you prepare for a post-Roe world.

    S3 E12 "I'm done with evil bosses and toxic workplaces. Can I stand up without being hammered down?"

    S3 E12 "I'm done with evil bosses and toxic workplaces. Can I stand up without being hammered down?"

    TODAY'S QUESTION:
    I have worked at a string of less than perfect places with toxic managers and owners. As a feisty Capricorn, all I want to do in my exit interview is to read the toxic m***********s I work under for filth. To say “You overwork us, lean on staff to the extreme, don’t respect our personal lives, force people to come in sick, and engage in serial wage theft!” But I live in a big small town where the owners of these places all know each other.  

    After some serious self-reflection, I can’t really say I do anything wrong at work other than being over qualified for the job, highly competent, and sticking up for myself so I don’t work for free or let people steal my wages. I know that bosses don’t like people who know their rights. But I swear I’m otherwise a good employee.  

    I’m finding myself in a smaller and smaller pool of places to seek employment because every time I try somewhere new it’s the same toxic b******t. And I am SICK of pretending that everything is fine when I inevitably quit for better wages or because I’m sick of the manager’s BS.  

    TLDR; how the hell do you speak your mind to a toxic boss in a small town when you quit without royally f*****g your future job prospects?

    S3 E11 "People treat me like a child just because I'm femme. How do I command the respect I deserve?"

    S3 E11 "People treat me like a child just because I'm femme. How do I command the respect I deserve?"

    TODAY'S QUESTION:
    How do I get people to take me seriously? I (24f) have a bubbly personality. I’m kind, I do well with children and babies, and I like to have fun. I throw themed parties for special occasions. I like to bake, I like to go dancing with my friends, and I dress in a very feminine way. I don’t want to sacrifice those parts of my personality because they make me who I am, but I have a hard time getting people to listen to me and respect my opinions. I’m about to graduate from law school and I’ve done some things that I am proud of! Like drafting COVID relief legislation, winning a case against a predatory lender as a student attorney, and implementing a federal grant for disabled workers. People still don’t think of me as a serious person, or as someone worthy of their trust, time, or attention. My own dad wouldn’t take my legal advice, and instead chose to pay $19.99 for an online consult with a sketchy website (which just confirmed what I already told him). There are examples of this from all parts of my life: my roommates don’t seem to respect my boundaries when I ask, guys don’t tend to see me as someone to settle down with, my mom constantly asks me if I’m “sure” about my life decisions. What am I missing? Is there something I’m doing wrong? How can I get people to respect me?

    S3 E10 "I want to break into a new field. How do I make employers see past my lack of direct experience?"

    TODAY'S QUESTION:
    I'm considering changing my job/career. How do I identify transferable skills from seemingly unrelated jobs and frame them as advantages?

    S3 E9: "My partner and I want kids in a few years. How do we financially prepare for a baby?"

    S3 E9: "My partner and I want kids in a few years. How do we financially prepare for a baby?"

    TODAY'S QUESTION:
    I am lucky to finally be getting paid what I'm worth. I’m making progress on basic financial goals like a robust emergency fund, funding my future retirement accounts, etc, so I’m ready to start focusing my energies on some more personal goals. My husband and I are thinking about expanding our family and trying to have kids. We are thrilled but nervous!  Strangely, while parenting advice is all over the place, there's not a lot of advice I can find about financial milestones to meet before having kids. What advice do y'all have from a financial standpoint for folks looking to get ready to get ready to have kids?

    S3 E8: "Should I get married for tax purposes? My boyfriend swears we'd save money, but I'm not so sure..."

    S3 E8: "Should I get married for tax purposes? My boyfriend swears we'd save money, but I'm not so sure..."

    TODAY'S QUESTION:
    For long term partners, what are the financial benefits of getting married? Why not just continue to live with my significant other and not legally tie the knot? My partner seems to think that our taxes would be way lower if we were to get married, but I'm not so sure. Yes, there is the added safety net of being on your partner's health insurance if you lose your job… but I'm not sure if that is enough to outweigh the financial consequences of divorce, etc. Along the same lines...is there a simple, cheap way to get a pre-nup for two people who both have similar assets/incomes but just want to be on the safe side?
