What’s a money topic you’re embarrassed to talk about? Don’t want to share with people the insane amount of money you spend at the penny arcade just to miss the big prize by one ticket, or better yet, the amount of debt you got into only because someone told you it will increase your credit score? Our roundtable today talks about embarrassing money topics and how to make them less uncomfortable. It’s strange, our regulars didn’t show up as themselves today. It must be Doug with his April Fool’s pranks again. We’ve got Gwen Merz, Paul Ollinger, and Bob Wheeler standing in and they share some great advice. We’ll also leave time for Doug’s riveting trivia.
