Thoroughly enjoyed listening to real conversations about a topic that is still so taboo to talk about. Really looking forward to what's to come with This Is Uncomfortable!

Description

This is a show about life and how money messes with it. Each week, Marketplace’s Reema Khrais digs in with stories about the unanticipated ways money affects relationships, shapes identities and often defines what it means to be an adult. How much money do you lend a friend? Who can afford to vote? Can you get your life back after being wrongfully convicted?
