    1249: Generation X: Money, Life and Legacy with Margit Detweiler

    This episode aired originally on May 31, 2021.
    They may be called the "forgotten generation," but Generation X, those born between 1966 and 1980, are the trailblazers of our time, according to guest Margit Detweiler, founder of TueNight.com — a Webby-honored storytelling platform, live event series and community for grown-ass, Gen-X women aka those of us who are, in fact, "just getting started." Farnoosh and Margit discuss Gen X's superpowers, the legacy they'll leave the next generation and what would you do with your career if the Internet crashed?
    More about TueNight: Its weekly newsletter, the TueDo List, was just a Webby honoree in 2021 and named one of the top women-led newsletters by Forbes. Their storytelling lineup is consistently great and has included luminaries such as What Not To Wear’s Stacy London, NY Attorney General Tish James, novelist Amy Sohn, musician Jill Sobule, author Ada Calhoun and many others. In April of this year Margit launched TueNighters a private, subscription-based community with events and workshops tailor-made for Gen-X women.
    More about Margit: She also runs Gyrate Media, a boutique content strategy firm that works with brands like Verizon, AARP, P&G, Brandless, J&J, Citi and many others. Previously, she was the editorial director for RealSimple.com and Aol Health, executive editor at EverydayHealth.com and managing editor and music editor of the Philadelphia City Paper. She's an award-winning reporter and editor and has contributed to Rolling Stone, Redbook, Refinery29, the Associated Press, Village Voice, Bust, and many others. A born and bred Philadelphian, she now lives in Brooklyn with her husband and beagle.

Hey Farnoosh - I started listening to your podcast early spring per my financial adviser recommendation and I absolutely love it. My favorite episodes are the Fridays episodes. You are literally part of my daily routine! You make finance seem easy and you guests are always so down to earth, it makes connecting with them so real. I have learnt so much, thank you!

Gen Xer says thank you!

Thank you for the interview with Margit Detweiler! As an older Gen Xer, I enjoyed the extra attention paid to my generation.

Overall, Farnoosh delivers great content three days a week! I enjoy her interviews and I learn something extra during the Ask Farnoosh podcast on Friday. Nicely done!

I learned about So Money back in 2015; and I listen faithfully to this day. My favorite guest is Ramit Sethi, whom Farnoosh inspired to make his own podcast.

Thanks so much for So Money- a gift in my podcast library that keeps on giving!

H.E.N.R.Y No more

I started listening to this podcast because I needed to get my life together. I’m in my late 20’s single with a pretty good salary, but was basically living paycheck to paycheck. I’ve honestly learned so much and thought about why I was spending the way I was. This show makes personal finance approachable and understandable. The guests provide so many perspectives on how to use money as a tool to live your best life.

The episode with Ramit Sethi especially was life changing and made me rethink the way I spend.

Thank you so much for this!
