What do New York City’s richest residents, murderous unions, and world-famous guests like Marilyn Monroe and the Beatles have in common? The Plaza Hotel! Julie Satow, award-winning journalist and author of The Plaza, joins us today to share a century of fascinating stories the hotel holds between its walls. From fortunes beyond measure to the Great Depression, from the Golden Age of Hollywood to Home Alone 2, the Plaza Hotel has never been shy about its place in history.
Plus, believe it or not, we’re about to enter tax season! Tax expert Katherine Pomerantz joins us during today’s headlines to share all-new tax rules. Between relaxed guidelines on charitable giving, new deductions for your student loan payments, and more savings than you’d think for your home office, this is one tax talk that’ll keep you listening.
Cole and his wife are DINKS, and are contributing heavily to their IRAs and Roth accounts. They’re planning on semi-retiring early and are looking for some advice on how they can best invest for the long-term, keep money relatively liquid, and have enough cash for living expenses. Thoughts? (And OH BOY, does Joe have some thoughts on this one. You don’t want to miss this). Of course, after a short and sweet rant, Cole gets plenty of great advice for the future. Of course, we’ll also save time for Doug’s trivia, and much, much more. Thanks for listening!
