Stacking Benjamins: Your Gateway to Money and Personal Finance


May 3, 2017

Think you know everything about the board game Monopoly? Think again! Mary Pilon, author of the New York Times bestseller The Monopolists joins us to talk about the unbelievably interesting and slightly sordid history of one of the world's favorite games.

In our headlines segment, we're joined by Jamie Wise from the BUZZ Index. He'll share the latest buzz on investing from social media. Then we're joined by Shane Steele from Chime. They have a new fee finder service which has uncovered some HUGE fees you might want to begin avoiding at the bank. He'll share some of the biggest mistakes they see, plus tips if you think you won't get your taxes finished in time for the deadline.

Plus, we throw out the Haven Life line to Lenny, who's worried about taxes and his new side hustle. Should he open a retirement account? Maybe withhold more from his main job? Anything else? We'll help him and you with that question. We also answer a letter from Collin, who asks about rebalancing his investments. 

Special thanks to  SoFi and Magnify Money for sponsoring our show! We couldn't do any of this without the support of these awesome companies.
