    Ep 221: Entrepreneurship And Pathways To Success With Lauren Maillian

    Lauren Maillian, CEO of digitalundivided, joins us for a chat about Black and Latinx entrepreneurs, and the barriers women face in the world of fundraising and founding companies.

In Mailbag, we talk whole life and term life insurance, and what to do about health insurance (and claiming a pension) when you retire before 65. In Thrive, what to do if your summer internship was sidelined.

    Ep 220: How Our Shopping And Spending Habits Are Changing

    Ep 220: How Our Shopping And Spending Habits Are Changing

    “Americans Are Shopping For Groceries Like It’s 1996.” That headline caught our eye because it’s true — we’re cooking at home, we’re ordering everything from Amazon, and our spending habits have radically changed. Will they ever go back to “normal”? Dan Frommer, Founder of The New Consumer, joins us to share why it’s like “a switch flipped, and we skipped 15 years into the future.” Dan talks about some of the pitfalls of shopping online, and the growing popularity of direct-to-consumer brands, like Warby Parker and Glossier. We also talk about where to get the best bargains out there right now. In Mailbag, what to do with 529 funds that may have been refunded, how to prioritize funds between debt repayment and investing, and navigating target date funds. In Thrive, the steps you need to take to keep your connections strong in this happy hour-less era.

    Ep 219: Pride, Inclusion, And Eradicating Bias

    Megan Smith, Chief Technology Officer of the United States under President Obama and CEO of Shift7, joins us for a candid conversation on inclusion and diversity. For Megan, inclusion means that all people are able to bring forward their greatest self, not “stomp on others.” She and Jean talk about the importance of supporting innovators, how tech is helping us to drive bias from movies and television, and the importance of “being there” for LGBTQ youth. In Mailbag, we hear from Marcia Mantell again on a question about Social Security for freelancers, and we take listener questions about setting up IRA accounts, and the pros and cons of having all your investments at one firm. In Thrive, what it really means for your bottom line when you file early for Social Security.

    Ep 218: Dieting, Body Image And Self Love

    We dwell with these things, and we dwell within them every single day of our lives, so when one of these things is a source of negativity for us, it impacts everything. Marisa Meltzer, author of “This Is Big: How The Founder Of Weight Watchers Changed The World — And Me,” dishes on all things body positivity, dieting, and how our relationships with food and money are so closely intertwined. In Mailbag, Jean and Kathryn check in with a very special guest — Piper Kerman, author of Orange Is The New Black — to help answer a question about managing finances while incarcerated. We also tackle questions on paying down debt and downsizing.

In Mailbag, we discuss saving for a house while paying down debt, investing in the market, and supporting aging parents.

    Ep 216: Everything Women Need To Know About Social Security

    Everything women need to know about social security, both today and in retirement, with Marcia Mantell, author of “What’s The Deal With Social Security For Women.” We discuss the best claiming strategies for women (including when to file), the rumor that social security may not be there for us when we need it, and why women are different when it comes to social security. In Mailbag, Jean and Kathryn tackle where to invest additional funds in retirement, how to help victims of domestic abuse get back on their feet financially, and how to avoid falling into the lifestyle inflation trap. In Thrive, how to get out of the negative feedback loop that may be preventing you from pursuing your bigger financial goals.

Fake warmth

The podcast episodes are very short and highly corporate with lots of ads and very little substantial content.
On top of it, they keep advertising their Facebook group as if all women are welcome, yet I haven’t gotten a response to two messages I sent answering their entry questions in a week. What kind do professional, well run, inclusive podcast is this? Pays lip service to the many topics it claims to cover and values it wants to espouse (supporting all curious women and being inclusive, for free)
