Listening to Gaby’s phone calls with her bank and credit card company, etc have inspired me to do the same. I just called my credit card company to ask about my interest rate monthly and honestly had an amazing conversation with the woman on the phone. She even gave me advice and taught me about variable interest rates and prime interest rates. I’m finding ways to save money I didn’t know was being taken from me.

Has made me better with money!

Another very personal episode featuring Garrett Werner, Gaby's boyfriend (and a comedian in his own right). He tells Gaby that he's never been as worried about her spending herself into oblivion as she thinks he is - in part because he was raised according to a prosperity-first philosophy that he ultimately decided to leave behind. You may not think commodities traders with $80,000 salaries have dark nights of the soul - but Garrett did, and he's never been happier to leave anything behind. He'd prefer that Gaby stop lying to him, though.*Also, classic Gaby: turns out Stanford ISN'T part of the Ivy League? Who knew?Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Comedians/wives of each other Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher are more than the funniest couple you're likely to meet - they're also a family business. For Rhea, that's meant giving up on the main way she's always defined herself: getting up and going to work every day. Instead, she keeps the house, walks the dog, and keeps her wife sane, while Cameron tours relentlessly, maintaining a steady flow of cash to ensure that there's a house to keep and a dog to walk. But now, with their TV show "Take My Wife" premiering on Seeso, everything is about to change - and they're hoping they can evolve together, the way they always have. But that's anything but a sure thing.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
