Our parents’ debts (from Terrible, Thanks for Asking)

This week, we're featuring one of our favorite episodes of one of our favorite podcasts.

This week, we’re running a powerful story about family and money from our colleagues at “Terrible, Thanks For Asking.”

It’s about Courtney, who never talked much with her family about money… until her dad died, her mom coped by spending most of their money and Courtney was left dealing with the financial consequences for years to come.

If you’re not listening to “Terrible Thanks for Asking,” you can find all their episodes here. And don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter for more stories about the pandemic, as well as some recommendations from our team. Here’s the latest issue, in case you missed it.
