Have you ever wondered how your friend bought that vacation home or why that colleague of yours makes everyone meticulously split the tab down to the last Diet Coke? Other People’s Pockets is a show about other people’s money. We ask people from all walks of life to get radically transparent about their personal finances in order to learn more about who we are and what makes us tick (and perhaps we level the playing field a little bit along the way?).

    The Variable Man with Gary Goldman and Angus Fletcher | Development Hell

    The Variable Man with Gary Goldman and Angus Fletcher | Development Hell

    Gary Goldman was a writer on “Total Recall”, a Philip K. Dick adaptation directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Arnold Schwarzeneger. It was a big hit. So why do Gary and his writing partner, Angus Fletcher, have so much trouble selling another Philip K. Dick adaptation? They tell Malcolm that it all came down to a roller coaster ride of plot twists that even A-List action actors couldn’t stomach, and an early attempt at AI that was too dumb to pick a smart script.

    Things are different now with our money

    Things are different now with our money

    It's hard to believe it, but this is the 35th episode of Other People's Pockets, which means it's the end of our first season! For this special episode, we reached out to some of our past guests for a "Look Back" -- an update on their financial situations & viewpoints. Cord Jefferson stopped earning money for a while and didn't know when more would come. Carmen González is learning how to apply for credit cards now that she's a U.S. citizen. Laura Lyster-Mensch decided she had been too cagey about her money on this show and now wants to reveal all. And more!

    How I do money after severing ties with my family

    How I do money after severing ties with my family

    Building credit. Being on your parent's cell phone plan. Learning to drive. There are many financial benefits to having a relationship with your family of origin. Today's guest, Jessica, has experienced what it’s like to not have those advantages. Jessica severed ties with her biological parents due to emotional abuse she experienced from them throughout her life. Jessica has built a strong network of friends — her chosen family — who contribute money when she needs a security deposit and give her rides to appointments. She explains how personal finance looks different when you have an alternative definition of family, and how she has a new outlook on asking for help and taking on debt.

    Raychel Sanner, Storm Chaser

    Raychel Sanner, Storm Chaser

    How does a love of extreme weather translate into making money? Raychel Sanner is a storm chaser and co-founder of Tornado Titans, a media brand by self-described “weather nuts” who capture images of supercells, monsoons, blizzards and more. As a Choctaw trans woman born and raised in Oklahoma, Raychel is transforming the image of storm chasing away from being dominated by straight, white cis-men. Raychel chats about the income she gets from her day job, whether she could do storm-chasing full-time, and what money conversations look like with her wife.

Very Good Show, But …

I do love the show and how Maya treats the guests with respect when discussing their personal finance. IMO, there are too many successful guests on the show. The hard conversations about money are not so hard when someone’s financially secure. Most of the middle class families I know in Houston are being strangled by credit card debt, borrowing money from their pre-retirement parents to pay for a child’s basic needs, taking out loans against their 401(k)s to afford car repairs and are one unfortunate doctor visit away from losing their equity drained homes. And I’m describing the families with 4-year college degrees employed at large Oil & Gas companies. This is the real middle class America. I would like to hear more of their stories.

So interesting

I love listening to this podcast and learning about how people think about and act around money. I feel like my generation knows so little about how money works and how to make it work for us. I love to hear these stories and gain insights into how other folks approach money. I’d love to hear some interviews of people in the following categories: someone in the FIRE movement, someone living fully off of farm income, someone who moved abroad for purposes of financial freedom, someone who retired but couldn’t stay in the US because their retirement was not enough, someone old working who can’t retire and the advice they would give younger folks, someone not worried about saving for the future and how they spend the money they have living in the present. I have loved all the guests Maya has had on the show so far and I feel like there is an unlimited amount of people who she could have appear! Thank you for this much needed conversation around money!

My all time favorite podcast

At first this was intriguing, and it just got exponentially better. The diversity of perspectives and intentional representation is incredible valuable. Every time I think there couldn’t be a more interesting episode, it gets better. I’ve listened to them all and can’t wait for the next each week. Sure it’s about personal finances but it’s also about capitalism and classism and racism and relationship dynamics and it’s just everything. I find myself so impressed with Maya’s facilitation and approaching tough subjects without judgment and with compassion. I will forever listen to anything she serves up.
