    What No One Told You About Student Loans

    What No One Told You About Student Loans

    The student loan crisis is impacting you, your friends, your kids and our economy. College is more expensive than ever and you’re being told, “Student loans are good debt,” “You can’t go to college without debt,” and, “It will be worth it.” These lies have duped the average college student into taking out $35,000 in student loans. In episode 1, you’ll hear from Dave Ramsey, Anthony ONeal, Rachel Cruze, Michael Torpey, Seth Frotman and others on the reality of the student loan debt crisis.

    Is College Even Worth It?

    Is College Even Worth It?

    Is your college degree really worth $35,000 in student loan debt? Students have been told college is the best next step, but for many, it’s the wrong next step. It turns out the ROI on a degree in puppetry might not repay your student loans. And how much of this about status? Is the student loan crisis actually a parenting crisis? In this episode you’ll hear from thought leaders like Seth Godin, Rachel Cruze, Anthony ONeal, Dave Ramsey, Ken Coleman, and Dr. Meg Meeker.

    What College Should You Go To? Avoiding the Traps of Higher Education

    What College Should You Go To? Avoiding the Traps of Higher Education

    Are we lying to kids when we tell them they have to go to college to be successful? College is not for everyone and some people would be happier working jobs that don’t require a degree. College choices are often based on marketing that preys on emotions, causing students to pick a campus with a lazy river over the one they can actually afford. But when you pick a college for the wrong reasons and take out student loans to do it, you can be screwed. In this episode you’ll hear from thought leaders like Mike Rowe, Seth Godin, Mark Cuban, Dave Ramsey, Rachel Cruze, Anthony ONeal and more on how college FOMO is real—and dangerous.

    Sallie Mae is Not Your Friend

    Sallie Mae is Not Your Friend

    When it comes to the student loan debt crisis, there’s a lot of blame to go around. In this episode we’ll take a look at the history of the government-backed student loan industry, how Sallie Mae became a player, and how student loans have led to soaring college costs. You’ll also hear how double-digit interest rates, subprime loans and large student loan repayments have led millions of borrowers into default and forbearance; why you can’t declare bankruptcy on a student loan; and why one dad will spend his life paying back $250,000 for a film degree his son never even used.

    Don’t Bank on Student Loan Forgiveness

    Don’t Bank on Student Loan Forgiveness

    Less than 1% of applicants get their college debt forgiven, so the current student loan forgiveness program is an epic failure. Politicians are making big promises on how they will forgive student loans, but where will that 2 trillion dollars come from? According to Dave Ramsey, Seth Frotman, Seth Godin, Mark Cuban and others, there’s no magic bullet to solve this crisis.

Changed my life and preaching the word

This was really in depth. The next best thing is SocialLoanJustice.org
This discussed the initial good intentions of loans but later allowed to be put in the hands of corruption. Most Americans were never told how good intentions changed and how student debt became destructive.

Wrong Focus

The focus of this podcast is on the mistakes and actions of individuals rather than the institutional systems that cause college debt to occur in the first place. Try again.
