Conversations about money are everywhere — even when no one thinks they’re talking about money.
Money intersects with everything we do and every decision we make, so our relationships with money find their way into just about anything we talk about. Work? Food? Therapy? Sports? Politics? Your fourteenth rewatch of The Office? Money is there.
About a million personal finance podcasts exist to talk explicitly about money — and most of them are boring at best, harmful at worst. (Heyyyy, budget culture.) The more interesting talk about money happens between the lines in other conversations.

Money with Katie is really good. You’re Wrong About is good for in-depth fun stories. What works for rethinking work and Red handed if you’re into true crime.
