  • Last: 5 Sep 2017
You know those money podcasts where financial experts teach you practical steps for maximizing your income? "Bad With Money" is the opposite of that. Gaby Dunn is anything but a financial expert. A self-described "bridge-burning livewire," she's always viewed money as an endless existential crisis - and she has a sneaking suspicion you do, too. So much of our identity and self-worth is caught up in how much money we have (or don't have), how hard it is to get it, and even harder to keep it. Money makes us freak out, cry, and do wildly inappropriate things. So how come nobody ever talks about it? Join Gaby for conversations with comedians, artists, musicians, actors, her parents, a financial psychologist, her boyfriend, and many others about the ways that money makes us feel confused, hopeless, and terrified. This is a safe space to admit that you have no idea what you're doing either.
