SPENT will tackle the real questions: Why is it so hard to save money? Why do we buy things we don't need? How does the way we were raised affect how we spend money? And finally, why are we so f****d up about money? You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll get a (financial) life, one episode at a time.

    Sex and Money: Stoya

    Sex and Money: Stoya

    Welcome back! You’re listening to SPENT, the podcast for the financially challenged. We’re back with a brand new season of incredible guests sharing all the wild ways they make and manage their money in a crazy and complicated world. It’s been a while since we last spoke to each other but SPENT’s mission is still the same: If you want to laugh and cry and learn about all the fascinating ways that people from all walks of life  juggle jobs, make financial decisions, and pay the rent while staying true to themselves, this is the podcast for you. 
    To all of you who reached out and told me how much you missed SPENT and all the harrowing and hilarious tales of money madness, I can’t thank you enough. It’s meant the world to me. 
    This time around, I’m doing things a little differently. Rather than one-offs, each episode will be part of a mini series based around a theme. First one up? Sex and money. Hey, money can be hard to talk about. So why not start things off with a bang? 
    We’ve got a killer lineup of guests over the course of the next four episodes. We’ve got adult film star, author, and activist STOYA in the studio to talk about royalties, residuals, and all the ways performers who work in adult entertainment  can get financially screwed.
    We’ve got dominatrix duo DIA DOMINA DYNASTY and LUCY SWEETKILL to talk about money, power dynamics, and how to demand what you’re worth.
    Economist ALLISON SCHRAGER, author of “An Economist Walks into a Brothel” talks risk and why we pay more to take on less of it.
    ALEXANDRA FINE, the CEO of Dame products, talks about the art and challenges of running a tech company that sells pleasure to women. 
    A big shout out to our sponsor STASH. Stash is an easy-to-use app that’s great for beginners that lets you bank, save, and invest smarter. Whether your goal is creating an emergency fund or saving for retirement, STASH can help you create the life you want with the money you have today, starting with just $5.

Refreshing financial podcast

I first heard about this from the Qapital newsletter and subscribed months ago, but didn't give an episode a listen until last week - I've binged all of them since then.
