    Thank you for listening

    When the Diversifying team set out to create this show, our mission was to create a safe space where personal finance could be discussed from the lens of those who are usually ignored: women, people of color, the LGBTQ community, and lower-income individuals. Hearing from all of you through the voicemails, reviews, and messages on social media has confirmed that we’ve achieved that mission and that this type of show is very much needed in the finance space. Thank you for tuning in and listening every week. We couldn’t have made this show without you.

    When the Price of Childcare is Just Too High

    When the Price of Childcare is Just Too High

    In most places in the US, sending a kid to daycare costs about the same as sending a kid to state college. Have more than one kid, and it’s easy for a daycare bill to be bigger than your paycheck – which leaves some women wondering if it would be better to drop out of the workforce entirely. Bloomberg Businessweek writer Claire Suddath joins Delyanne Barros for a conversation about the toll high childcare prices take on women’s careers and financial lives, and the broken childcare system in America underlying it all.

    The Real Cost of Baby-Making

    The Real Cost of Baby-Making

    Infertility treatments can cost upwards of $100,000. This is a particular burden for LGBTQ+ couples, who need access to procedures like IUI, IVF, or surrogacy if they want to have biological children. This week, E Bradshaw and Jaimie Kelton, co-hosts of the podcast If These Ovaries Could Talk, tell us about their respective baby making journeys, including how they figured out their finances to make it work. Delyanne Barros also sits down with Dr. Mark Leondires from Gay Parents to Be to break down possible costs and some surprising resources.

This week, Delyanne Barros and Shani Silver break down the financial hurdles single people face and discuss why we should rethink our attitudes toward single life.

The most helpful podcast

I honesty don’t care much for reviews and all but honestly Diversify is so helpful for me as a Black woman. I think everyone should listen to it. Only six episodes in and I am just mind blown. Thanks for following your dreams and doing this. Your impact is far bigger than you will ever know. Be blessed, and I wish you more success and more money.
