This has been an interesting podcast, I canât say my intelligence in finances has grown but Iâve learned a lot. Most of what Iâve learned makes me feel that everything is so broken I should just give up.
I wanted to love this podcast so much. I listened to the first couple episodes and by the third I just couldnât listen any more. It sounded relatable, but the more I listened, the more I realized that I didnât want to take financial advice from someone making more than 3x what I do and doesnât even pay her own student loans and then complains about her financial insecurity...
Abbyâs voice is so high pitched and winey. I can not stand to listen to this podcast
I have Mental Illnesses and I am exactly like the description of people who have no control over the Buying!! I do get a High and then Very Depressed and Guilty for getting the purchase. I need to get help but do not know where to go to.Thank you Gabby for doing this show. I know now that I am not the only person out here like this. Kathy ð²
I love this show and have always been pretty âgood with money.â Itâs possible Iâm not the intended audienceð¤. Iâm sure Iâm not an outlier since folks who are already âgood withâ personal finance tend to seek additional personal finance resources. A variety of personal finance and systematic obstacles are covered each season so I canât imagine everyone relates closely to every episode. I always find the episodes entertaining and informative. The host also does a lot of work to try to eliminate the shame of 1) not having money, 2) not knowing how many works, 3) having come into money through unexpected ways, and 4) how people choose to use their money.
Welp, I thought this would help me with personal finance, provide me with some helpful ways to deal with money or debt. But after hours of giving it a try...itâs all about social economics, millennial discussions, and oppression of the liberals. For real money guidance and logic download Dave Ramsey, heâll set you straight.
I discovered this podcast thru another one of my favorites. I love Gabyâs personality and energy that she puts in to her shows. Itâs very professional right down to the intro song. The topics are wide ranging but most about personal finance. The guests that she interviews add additional value to the topics. Keep the good work and looking forward to new content.
I love Gabyâs insights and her guests blow my mind in just about every episode! Iâm super excited for the new season!!
Where you at?
Honestly? I loved the first few episodes. It seems like everyone does. We all can relate to Gabbyâs financial issues one way or another. However.. she lost me when I realized her financial problems are very minimal she still makes very good money, and yeah.. she might be learning along as we listen to her find out about her college or car loans, etc. But I donât actually believe she has gone through the financial struggle most of us go through in our late 20s/early 30s when we realize we canât turn things around quick... like the college loans (that her mother pays...). Oh.. her mother is a lawyer... I mean... really... The episode with the financial psychologist was good, but her plan of just writing a huge movie and all her money issues will be gone? It seems naive... sheâs trying too hard to be cute when she already is. Anyway, I tried to look past the fact that I couldnât really relate to her. And then.. one day the podcast stopped being about Gabby and her personal struggles and it turned into interviews of already successful people. Again.. not relatable to most of us.. I had to stop. And now here I am... writing this review...
Really enjoyed this podcast. I have been a fan of Gaby for a few years but even if you donât much about Gaby-you will love this podâ-if you are even remotely bad with money or just starting out earning and spending money. Learn from our mistakes and listen :)
Oddly both soul crushing and motivating at the same time.
I just found out about this podcast from a fire blog and I'm totally obsessed. Not only have I listen to 8 episodes in the last 4 days I've also told all my friends and started talking to EVERYONE about money. Gaby is really funny, she has great guest speakers and she asks questions everyone else is afraid to ask. I love you Gaby! I wish we were best friends! Instead I'm making my BFF listen starting at episode 1.
This is the only financial show that has actually had an effect on me. Iâve started investing and am teaching my kids about compound interest and the importance of saving. When do we get more episodes? I need you back Gabby!!!
Funny and heartfelt. Thanks to Gabby Dunn for honesty and humor.
If you want to listen to a podcast with young adults taking responsibility for their bad choices in finances, careers and relationships...keep looking. If youâd like to join a collective pity party and blame capitalism for everything in your life thatâs not ideal, subscribe now!!
Itâs relatable, well-written and well-researched, and so interesting! Thanks, Gaby Dunn!
This is the best podcast! Gaby is awesome to listen to and has some really amazing conversations that help me feel less stupid when it comes to money!
Gabby is a refreshing voice through my speakers. Sheâs unafraid to ask the questions I didnât even know I had! Sheâs funny but not obnoxious. Iâm a big fan!
A fun listen, but if you're listening to get actual advice, take what's in here with a grain of salt. Some of the earlier episodes have statements that are flat out wrong, like when Garrett tells Gaby to go to a bank to open a 401K. That's now how it works - 401Ks are through your employer and you usually don't get this benefit as a contractor.
I love Gaby! Sheâs kinda my hero! â¤ï¸thank you for speaking the truth about money, itâs sooooo refreshing! As someone who struggles and feels constantly like Iâm doing something wrong because I canât catch up, I know all too well the shame and guilt we put on ourselves. Thank you for sharing keep up the good work! I am most definitely just as frustrated and dejected at times when it comes to money as you are. Hang in there! Much love! -Erin
This podcast has been an incredible lifeline for me. It has given me hope in an area that overwhelmed me to the point of inaction and desperation. When I started listening to this podcast, I wasn't even able to pay my student loan bills. Not because I couldn't afford to send at least something in, but because I was so overwhelmed I couldn't even find the motivation to log onto my accounts and fill out the right paperwork. I was so scared and confused. Then, I started listening to this podcast. I learned the tools and found the inspiration to give it a go. I started this podcast as someone who is bad with money, but now I'm better with money. I have used the resources Gaby talked about. I invest with Ellevest, I've read Wired for Wealth, I've faced my debt head on like Gaby has done. I've faced my spending habits and relationship with money head on. Every single episode of this podcase is a gem and a lifeline. I don't know where I would be without it. I am so so so grateful for it and for Gaby's amazingness. I highly recommend this podcast to EVERYONE!
I love this podcast. I love Gaby. I think she is hilarious. What sheâs doing with this podcast is great. No one taught me these things in school and not everyoneâs family is able to teach it. I really have learned so much. It has made me much more aware of my finances and what Iâm spending my money on. It makes me feel better to know there are tons of people out there who donât know about these things, too. I highly recommend giving this one a chance. Youâll laugh, youâll cry, youâll pay off your debt. Haha (I really have paid my credit cards off since starting this podcast. So, thanks Gaby!!)
20 somethings, this ones for you. For me, in my 50âs, it was torture.
Interesting subject matter and interviews but sections where itâs just Gaby talking, her tone and pace and inflection are that of someone reading off of a piece of paper rather than that of someone speaking to the audience.
Gaby Dunn is funny, bright, insightful and honest about her knowledge of personal finance. She also encourages this kind of discourse with her guests, who then share their financial challenges and victories. In a world where people are constantly trying to impress each other with their wealth, accomplishments and the Facebook version of their lives, âBad with Moneyâ offers a refreshingly honest look into the habits and bank accounts of regular folks.
I got interested in this podcast because of it's original premise: A lot of people have a lot of shame about finance, and talking about this, and learning to understand this, will help alleviate the shame so more constructive action can be taken. I count myself amongst the ashamed.Ms. Dunn is actually unwilling to be as transparent as she thinks she is. She consistently runs away from her fears by making her problems out to be a joke. The joke is on the listener, because she's laughing all the way to the bank. She's insincere, and a self-centered bore.I suggest that she bring more average people onto the podcast. People who have been bad with money, and have overcome whatever fears from which Ms. Dunn consistently runs away. That way more who identify themselves as bad with money understand how to overcome their own fears.I gave it two stars because the original premise of the show is worth carrying over to a better host.
I really wish that the host would discuss these money issues in our world today with less feminism and race. I feel as a woman that I would benefit more from getting direct information about the topics without the basis of the topics being related to feminism and race. If you want to learn about how conservatism is suppressing minorities in her view within these money issues this is the podcast for you. However this podcast is not for me. I would rather have unbiased direct information given to me.
Thanks to this podcast and the range of guests, topics, and styles Iâve talked to my family about credit, debt, wills, and made it a habit to confront my own money scripts. Itâs my favorite podcast and I recommend it to everyone. I turned it on for a 10 hour road trip with friends and we were all hooked. Thanks Gaby!
If you ever thought thereâs no way you would ever understand your financial issues, or the worldâs for that matter, you must listen to this podcast. Many of us are in positions of privilege AND deep in debt, they are not mutually exclusive SHOCKING right?? Everyone, just listen to this podcast itâs amazing, at least do it for the intro music itâs my favorite part.
Started out the first few episodes as a pretty great show, but Iâm six episodes in and Iâm hearing a ton about discrimination in Hollywood and not a lot about finance at all. I think the host is super likable and funny and Iâm passionate about what sheâs talking about, but I came here to hear about finance and getting it together and it doesnât deliver on that front.
Literally the best podcast. Itâs entertaining but also caused me to have to think about my relationship with money in so many ways. Could not recommend more.
If I can recommend one podcast to friends and family (or strangers) its this one! Gaby doesnât just explore personal finance, she delves into the details of the American financial system, exploring the nitty gritty details of what itâs really like to be a minority trying to thrive and grow in a system set up for the straight white male majority (sheâs also really funny). 10/10 - 5 stars - 100 rainbows!
Iâm bad with money and have learned so much. I love Gaby Dunn.
Gaby shows talent as a podcast host. That said, a recurring theme of this podcast - blaming large groups of people who are whites, men, or capitalists - does little to bring value. We can encourage our society to be both color blind and gender equal, but not by presenting a double standard. I would encourage Gaby to bring strength to her listeners through empowering them to conquer the world of money by succeeding in it. Diverse groups of people from all walks of life have done exactly that. Their success can be emulated.
I remember listening to the first few episodes, years ago, thinking âinteresting and entertaining but neither queer nor feminist enoughâ - but oh boy did that change! Iâve been catching up these last couple weeks and: Endless episodes plzzz!
This is accessible information and given with a lot of humor. Gaby features a variety of very qualified guests that discuss all kinds of thing money related. I have devoured all the available episodes.
I listened to 1.5 episodes. Each episode started out ok but quickly devolved into discussions about feminism and sexuality, which is fine but shouldnât be advertised as having anything to do with finance. More so the show revolves around leftist thoughts/arguments and discussions about gender/sexual inequality. Again, no problem with these subjects, however I didnât attempt to listen to this show to hear these arguments and they really have no bearing on economics or finance.
Gaby is hilarious and her conversational tone is really engaging. More importantly, though, she features guests who are top academics and experts in their fields to have fascinating discussions about the most complex of issues. Easily one of my favorite podcasts...
As a young adult with little to no understanding of fincances and trying to save up for the future this is a great show! Iâd love an episode on unemployment â the process seems deliberately confusing, not to mention overly politicized and conflated with racist ideology. (Not sure Iâm wording that well, but the connection between race and unemployment seems problematic and worth digging into).
Itâs a podcast for people who donât know about personal finance by people who donât know about personal finance. I gave it three episodes to see if I just started on a dud. Nope theyâre pretty bad. I think they are just playing up the feminist angle. If you are looking for better entry level investment or personal finance podcasts there are much better ones out there.
I liked season one and two but this current season is just chock full of leftist agenda. Itâs mostly just jamming political stuff down my throat and thinly veiling it as financial advice..... telling me that a socialist society will get me out of debt is just wishful thinking gabby. Go back to actually giving good advice instead of being so gosh darn political.
I just strumbled upon Gaby's podcast and love it! Keep up the good work Gaby!
I thought this was a really cool podcast and very informative. I subscribed.
Super informative and goes deeper than I expected. It's not just about money and taxes, she tackles sociological issues around money as well. Great guests and I learn a lot!
Was excited for this podcast but was completely turned off and will no longer listen. Everything is the white mans fault I get it
As someone who grew up in a lower middle-class artsy house with somewhat financially irresponsible parents I can seriously relate to Gabby and her experiences growing up. This is an amazing podcast for, not only personal knowledge growth and reflection, but also bridging that difficult divide between the individual and the political. I cannot recommend this podcast enough, itâs accessible, approachable and leaves you thinking about both your money and the point of this whole âmoneyâ thing.
I didnât think I was bad with money. Iâve always been scared of the âcreditâ people. So everything is paid on time and more than minimum. But then I heard the episode with your sister and the borrowing money for sushi debacle and thatâs 100% my family. I was so surprised. Giving money away is also being bad with it. So enlightening. Thank you Gaby!
My girlfriend got me into JBU which was cool. Iâm not sure how I got into Bad with Money, but Iâm so glad I did. Love having someone relay information that matters in an interesting way. My favorite personality has truly opened my eyes to marriage, children, retirement, climate change, etc. I canât tell enough people about this podcast. Itâs ruined me for other podcasts. Would be 10/10 but they only gave me 5 and that still doesnât feel like enough.
