“This Is Uncomfortable” is a show about the thing that always seems to be on our minds, but we are absolutely terrible at talking about: money.
Money shapes so much of our identities, our relationships, our emotions, and on our new season we’re going to dig into one very specific feeling: that nagging suspicion that in some way or another, we’re all kinda getting scammed.
We’ll bring you stories about identity thieves and get-rich-quick schemes. But we’ll also look at how our society is built in a way that can sometimes leave us feeling cheated — like when we’re trying to get affordable health care.
We’ll have new episodes every Thursday starting April 1. Listen to the trailer above or wherever you get podcasts.
To get even more Uncomfortable, check out our newsletter. Each Friday morning we’ll bring you a bunch more content that you won’t hear on the podcast: a note from Reema, an exclusive new story from a listener and the books, movies, recipes, games, TikToks and more that Reema and the team are into that week. Here’s the latest issue.
The future of this podcast starts with you.
