Pt. 2: Millennials, Money, & the Bizarre American Fever Dream: the Role of "Personal Finance Education" & Our Collective "Expectation Hangover"

Pt. 2: Millennials, Money, & the Bizarre American Fever Dream: the Role of "Personal Finance Education" & Our Collective "Expectation Hangover"

A reflection on privilege, scamming, and #Girlbossing.


Last week to kick off this two-part special, we explored the culture, economy, and education systems that built the millennial generation. If you haven't heard the first episode yet, I recommend going back to start with that first (https://link.chtbl.com/022a2-MX).

Today, we’re digging into how “financial literacy” shifts reality on its axis, who the “winners” and “losers” are in our economic era, and why scamming has become a quintessential millennial pastime (Fyre Festival, anyone?). To top things off, we’ve got a super thought-provoking conversation with Gaby Dunn of Bad with Money fame (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/bad-with-money-with-gaby-dunn/id1144712710). 

It’s a veritable Magic School Bus ride through the wild terrain of 21st century America: Even the centimillionaire megachurch preachers and girlbosses squeezed into tiny seats and threw spitballs for a few stops.
