Ep 257 – The Hypergamy Debate

Have you ever heard of hypergamy? Wikipedia defines it as “the act or practice of a person marrying a spouse of higher caste or social status than themselves.” Plenty of women today are actually following hypergamy in their relationships. Tiff fell down a YouTube rabbit hole and she’s got questions…(3:18)

Other highlights:

  • Stimmys are coming! What should we be doing with them? (31:58)
  • How do students and dependents get their checks? (33:53)
  • Whether you should open a UGMA account for your child (35:49)
  • What the child tax credit in the stimulus bill is all about (42:32)

Ep 254 – Girlfriends, Not Gurus

We almost called this episode “D*ve R*msey is Trash — The Sequel”.

We were overwhelmed by the response to last week’s show. Thank you so much for the support!

For more on the shady history of DR’s corporation, check out this article from Religion News Service. It’s worth the read, along with the full response from the DR team.

But the real reason we want to talk about DR again is that last week his podcast was DETHRONED from the number one spot for financial shows on Apple Podcasts for personal finance. He was taken out by our friends Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings of Earn Your Leisure. Shine on!

And after a word on the difference between finance gurus and finance girlfriends, we got to a really good listener question…

(40:30) $40,000 in debt…where do I start?!

Ep 253 – The D*ve R*msey Read

Our buddy DR had some things to say about stimulus checks and student debt this week (3:11). Tiffany has some thoughts about that (7:20). And after we get done with the dragging, we got a really good question from a listener named Jane (29:25). Jane wants to leave her job to start her own business, and she’s got a few questions about how to get financially ready for that. After we take a second to give her a round of applause for doing an amazing job with her finances thus far, we get to talking about how hard the life of an entrepreneur can be. Do you need to quit your job to start your business (31:10)? Is it okay to contribute a little less to your 401k (34:20).

There’s a lot to think about here, and Tiff gets real real about it (45:20).

When you’re done listening, this is the list of financial educators we want you to know about:
