Episode Description 
This week, guest host Lizzie O’Leary and personal finance expert Lauren Lyons Cole answer listeners’ questions about money. Plus, we explore the tensions that arise in neighborhoods where gentrification has caused both economic and cultural shifts and discuss how raising the minimum wage would affect the day-to-day lifestyles of families and individuals. Also, who do you tip and why? A new Starbucks app makes it easy to add gratuity to your purchases, but just because it’s convenient, does that mean people will pay?
