2. Afford Anything – Paula Pant

Afford Anything
Afford Anything

Afford Anything is a movement rooted in one idea: You can afford anything, but not everything — and that’s true not only for your money, but also your time, focus, energy, and attention.

This opens two questions:
1. How can we make smarter decisions about our money, time and life?
2. How can we align our daily behaviors and habits with the lifestyle we value most?

Afford Anything explores the answers to these two critical questions.

Along the journey, we take interesting forays into topics like investing, travel, lifestyle design, financial independence, and any other topic that jumps into this curiosity playground. We swap stories and ideas about real estate, entrepreneurship, productivity, personal development and a philosophy of money.

3. Fairer Cents – Tanja Hester and Kara Parez

When was the last time someone said “You go girl!” actually changed your life?

We’re all for cheering each other on, but we want to go deeper and look behind those happy epithets at what really makes money such a complicated subject, especially for women.

This isn’t a podcast spouting financial advice. We aren’t sharing tips about how to make money on the internet. And we sure as hell aren’t talking about how to get rich quick.
Join us if you’re down to dig into the stickier economic issues that disproportionately affect women, people of color, non-binary people and everyone who feels marginalized by our current money culture. This is about the fight to get economically equal.

1. Akimbo – Seth Godin


Akimbo is an ancient word, from the bend in the river or the bend in an archer’s bow. It’s become a symbol for strength, a posture of possibility, the idea that when we stand tall, arms bent, looking right at it, we can make a difference.
Akimbo’s a podcast about our culture and about how we can change it. About seeing what’s happening and choosing to do something.
The culture is real, but it can be changed. You can bend it.
