    Most recently, Ian was featured in McDonald's black and positively golden mentors commercial campaign. And this included figures like Big Sean and NASCAR's Bubba Wallace.

So good

I really love this podcast. Kriti does a great job of explaining the importance of financial literacy and independence. I think that these subjects are not talked about enough at school, but are a critical part of growing up. The Harry Potter episode is one of my favorites.
