Episode Description 
What role do your emotions play when it comes to making financial decisions? In a special collaboration with the New York Times, we examine how our feelings influence our personal finances -- from the choices we make about the pets we care for to deciding who we spend the rest of our lives with. We look at why a realtor is sometimes a homebuyer's emotional partner, why some rich folks are giving away their wealth, and how some seniors are piling on debt to help their families. Plus, Kai Ryssdal examines what happens when chasing your dream doesn't work out. Tune in this weekend to hear our special broadcast.
