Manners for a Monetary Meltdown

Season 1, Ep. 17

One of the many repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic has been the drastic financial impact it's had on millions of Americans and billions of others around the globe. What lessons will we learn from a worldwide lockdown that led us to the economic brink? How will we be smarter and shrewder about our finances and careers going forward?


For answers to that, Thomas turns to his friend Farnoosh Torabi, author, podcaster and commentator on all things money-related. Her insights provide both a dose of reality and a dash of hope as we navigate the continued fallout from the shutdowns.
