Chris Walla has a job many people dream of — he makes a living playing guitar for the popular band Death Cab for Cutie. But he was always a rock star, especially when it came to managing his money.

Walla tells Tess Vigeland about the finance mistakes he’s made, and what he’s learned about money over the years.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
