Financial Therapy Series (May 2020)

By SDSSTL - May 27 2020
Read more
I’ve found the “Financial Therapy” episodes with the other host (Amanda) really boring. Focusing on one person’s financial issues for 30 minutes is just dry. I’d rather they skip these altogether and bring us actual DSM episodes.

Maybe it’s me, Maybe it’s not

By R.E.D.30 - May 14 2020
Read more
I used to love this podcast. Anna is such a tremendous interviewer, but in the past year, I’ve found the conversations a lot less compelling. I also enjoyed the complexity of stories brought forward and how the team kept the interpretation open to the listener. I am disappointed that in recent episodes, that “judgement-free” presentation of people’s lives is gone. I don’t enjoy listening to a storyteller who assumes our values are always the same, and then tailors the show to that assumption. It limits the experience.

A Weekend Homework Assignment From Tayari Jones

Podcast cover
Read more

One of the things writer Tayari Jones has learned in isolation is mastering different forms of connection, from re-learning how to teach her college students over Zoom to sending money to friends in need. The simplest way she's connecting? Greeting cards! "People love to receive cards and I have so many of them and I just imagined that if people are at home alone feeling isolated, wouldn't it be nice to get a card even if it's the wrong holiday?"

In that spirit, this weekend we're asking you to send a greeting card to someone in your life. Send us pictures, record a voice memo and email us at deathsexmoney@wnyc.org by Monday morning.

Financial Therapy Series (May 2020)

By SDSSTL - May 27 2020

I’ve found the “Financial Therapy” episodes with the other host (Amanda) really boring. Focusing on one person’s financial issues for 30 minutes is just dry. I’d rather they skip these altogether and bring us actual DSM episodes.

Maybe it’s me, Maybe it’s not

I used to love this podcast. Anna is such a tremendous interviewer, but in the past year, I’ve found the conversations a lot less compelling. I also enjoyed the complexity of stories brought forward and how the team kept the interpretation open to the listener. I am disappointed that in recent episodes, that “judgement-free” presentation of people’s lives is gone. I don’t enjoy listening to a storyteller who assumes our values are always the same, and then tailors the show to that assumption. It limits the experience.
