Episode Description 
This weekend, Lizzie O'Leary talks with Steve Levine, Washington Correspondent for Quartz, about what Russian sanctions mean for the America economy and for Russia. Kim Davidson, Business Development Manager in Murrieta, Calif., discusses the impact of immigration protests in the city. Certified financial planner Louis Barajas gives some advice on what to do when love and money just aren’t working together. Stand-up comedian Jimmy Pardo talks about how chasing your dream isn't a choice, it's an inevitability — one that can ruin you financially. There has been a lot of talk in Congress about shutting down the Export-Import Bank. The House Committee on Oversight and Government reform has launched a probe into possible corruption of the bank.  But what is it? We visit a fabric store in Manhattan that has benefited from the bank in the past.
