This week, Gaby finds a financial literacy unicorn. Nan Morrison actually learned a lot about money from her parents, which is a luxury a lot of us don’t have. Luckily, she’s working to make financial literacy education better, as CEO and president of the Council for Economic Education. Next up, it’s Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin, hosts of Unladylike, a podcast about what happens when break the rules. We tasked them with digging up some history and sociology around the ways gender and sexism works its way into our financial lives. And Herman Brodie, a behavioral economist looks at why it’s so hard to trust the people who handle our money.
