A Money Podcast more about the Why, and less about the How. The emotions, memories and mindsets of individual money stories are what we hope to highlight on the show. Our own story and vulnerability took center stage in the first season. Season 2 is currently underway and we have been delighted to take a ‘behind the scenes’ interview approach focusing on the trials and transformations of men and women who live life a little bit differently. We are hoping to redefine couple money and speak to those that don't have a traditional relationship to encourage more people to pursue financial independence.
24: Julien & Kiersten | Money Layers in Society and Relationships
Kiersten and Julien from Rich and Regular join us for our last interview in season 2. You may have seen them in the trailer for the upcoming documentary Playing With FIRE. We couldn't have asked for better guests to wrap up season 2, these two blew it out of the park.
We originally brought them on to talk about finances and relationships and they had amazing insights into that, but we ended up going so much deeper!
The best way to describe it is a multi faceted, layered talk about money, relationships, society, awareness, and the challenges African American's face, especially while striving for FIRE.
Bethany and I had our own reality checks during our own journey, yet the common advice out there doesn't always apply to everyone. It was an important reminder that we hope everyone takes to heart when listening.
If you are someone pursuing FI/RE, then this is a must listen. Without further ado we are happy to bring you two regular, yet rich people.

23: Michelle Schroeder-Gardner | Alternative Living
Michelle from Making Sense of Cents joins us to talk about living life a bit differently.
From living the nomadic life in an RV for 3 years and to now transition to a life on the sea in their sailboat, this is just another day in their life.
As travelers ourselves, we were curious about what full time travel looks like, some of the challenges, and some of the best parts of it. This includes working on the road and balancing places that have internet versus where you want to go.
Join us as we take a peek into the life of Michelle and her husband and see if this growing trend is something you would consider sometime in your own life.

22: Jimmy and Jenny | The Challenges of Parenting in Today's Society
Jimmy and Jenny from Living Life Loving Us join us to talk about something we haven't really ever discussed before, parenting. The challenges of parenting are ever widening with the expanse of social media and the expectations that other parents have of each other for raising children.
These two have a different take on the matter and have a truly unique system they have developed for their own family. It takes hard work and some sacrifice but the fight was worth it even when these two had to spend 6 figures on IVF just to have their baby.
They share their perspective on how they are raising their child, how they can still "spoil" her while not having to break the bank, and just focusing on what really matters most.
Jenny and Jimmy bring their honest and vulnerable thoughts to this conversation and make this one a must listen even if you don't have kids.

21: Jamila Souffrant | Quitting your Job to Pursue Entrepreneurship
Jamila from Journey to Launch joins us to talk about her recent major decision. What I really appreciate from Jamila is that she figured out money first. Saving and investing her money for years before taking on such a big new challenge. Not only that, she and her husband saved a 2 year emergency fund to really give being a full-time entrepreneur a real shot.
We explore more than just quitting your job. Talking about Jamila's upbringing with money, her thoughts on why more people want to escape the 9-to-5, and the emotions tied in with money.
This is an inspiring conversation for anyone looking to make a big lifestyle change, while minimizing risks and still being smart with money.
We hope you enjoy it as much as us.

Bonus: The Money Middletons | A New Curation Site for Mild to Moderate Income Earners
We are happy to have on Stephanie, the creator of a new personal finance content curation site The Money Middletons. Their goal is to reach the shrinking middle class whose incomes are mild to moderate. What is considered the middle class you say?
Well, that is a tricky question as Stephanie points out in our talk. According to Brookings the definition of middle class can have many different meanings. Luckily Pew Research has a calculator that will help you determine what category you fall in.
I think the most important part that came across in this conversation though is a hard number range isn't the end-all be-all to determine if The Money Middletons will speak to you. Chances are they will have something of value to bring to you.
Listen for yourself and see if you can call yourself a Middleton.

20: Sarah | Save AND Spend Approach to Personal Finance
Sarah from Smile and Conquer is on the show to share her financial expertise as a professional in the finance world.
She doesn't advocate for a frugal life but instead takes a save AND spend approach. This reflects in her desire to not retire early as she enjoys her work and job. This results in some awesome advice for how to budget when you are an inherent spender.
We then dive deeper into money and talk about some of the emotions that are tied to it, including shame. She goes on to discuss the challenges women face dealing with financial planners and the investing gap.
We also delve into home buying as she goes over the top tips from her Home Buying Series.
Tune in for this well rounded conversation as there is lots to take away.

Love the content, hate the audio
The content is great! I love what they talk about and although I don’t agree with everything I can see their points. But please do something to fix your audio. I’m hard of hearing and at times they are super quiet and I have to turn my volume up high to hear but then they laugh really loudly and it is DEAFENING.
Can’t take any podcast or other media seriously when it has such poor grammar in the headlines. For example, “couple’s” is the proper way to indicate possessive.
Insightful hosts and great guests!
The hosts come so prepared and have a great energy between them. Plus they put in time to have great audio and find great guests. I love this podcast!
