There's No Magic (aka Retirement)
Gaby explores the conundrum of saving for retirement. So much of the rhetoric around retirement has to do with rewarding yourself for a life of hard work - but what if you can barely afford to live your life in the present? Why should you bother fixating on the future? Featuring Bola Sokunbi (clevergirlfinance.com), Ken Raskin (Allison's dad), and Piggy and Kitty of bitchesgetriches.com.
A Myth We Somehow Believe (aka Money and Politics)
Why does the idea of a businessman as president make so much sense to people? Especially when the actual president is a terrible businessman? Gaby explores the enduring myth of trickle-down prosperity - and learns some surprising facts about the religious tradition that seems to underpin a lot of Donald Trump's "morals." Featuring Helaine Olen (author of Pound Foolish), TIME correspondent Elizabeth Dias, and Talia Jane.
Who Can Afford to Have Sex? (aka Babies)
Everybody loves babies - they're adorable, and if you're a comedian, they're the best audience you could ever hope for. But childbirth is also an emotional and financial minefield.

This week, Gaby wanders through the minefield with guests Anna Sale (Death, Sex & Money), Noel Leon (DC Abortion Fund), and Think Progress senior editor Tara Culp-Ressler.

Featuring Jasmine Lilly (Avowed podcast), Anne Chertoff (Anne Chertoff Media), Rebecca Eisenberg (Upworthy), and the one and only Caryn Grainer, our first member of the Bad With Money Three-Timers Club.
