We’re focusing on family and finances on this week’s episode. One caller is concerned about her mother’s retirement and her own. Another caller’s mother helped him settle a huge student debt and set up his retirement — but he isn’t sure what else to do to improve his credit score. And lastly, a caller wants to know how to navigate the potential minefield of settling a debt with family members. And in light of the Japanese tsunami, Kathy Kristof talks about earthquake insurance.

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?
