Listen Up: Attempting Healthy Bodies and Healthy Bank Accounts
We’ve got a major VIP guest alert on this week’s show—our teen (and, clearly, adult) idol SuChin Pak joins to talk about her incredibly informative and so very thoughtful personal finance podcast Open Account and why money is still such a weirdly taboo topic. In case you’ve been thinking about kicking booze or caffeine (or gluten or sugar or dairy…) for a bit, Claire and Erica are also recapping their early 2017 adventures in doing without.
Our newest #ReadingThings pick is in, and it’s a whole lot more straightforward than the last one—it’s even got pictures! The title is This One Summer, and it’s a coming-of-age graphic novel written and illustrated by two cousins, Mariko and Jillian Tamaki. We’re discussing it April 10th!
On the pros and cons of Dry January and a very Gwyneth-y cleanse…
- Erica cut out a whole buncha stuff (including whatever nightshades are) for this GP-approved detox and feels decidedly less...goop-y now.
- If you’re trying to cut out caffeine, a few of the best warm beverage replacements are Twinings Herbal Chamomile, Honey, & Vanilla Tea, Gaia Herbs Golden Milk, and any of Four Sigmatic’s mushroom beverages (like the cocoa one!).
Special and amazing guest SuChin Pak, entrepreneur and host of the brilliant Open Account podcast, on asking uncomfortable questions and doing some well-deserved splurging…
- Check out Open Account, where SuChin gets into the nitty-gritty of personal finance with all kinds of unexpected guests. It’s all listening gold, but we’re especially big fans of the episode on immigration, as well as the ones with Paula Pell, Meyers Leonard, Eddie Huang, and Managed by Q founder Dan Teran.
