Our podcast question today is on the topic of wealth, privilege, and g-g-g-g—
No, not ghosts! It’s g-g-g-guilt!
Specifically: rich white lady guilt! OooOOoooOOOO!
But don’t be afraid. Piggy and I are both ex-Catholics. Whatever kind of guilt you have, we can slice and dice it into bite-sized chunks with the studied grace of a teppanyaki chef.
“As a progressive person and someone who is starting to get into a pretty good place financially (have an emergency fund, bought a home a few years ago, paid off credit card debts), I’ve started feeling so guilty! It probably doesn’t help that I work in finance too. I don’t like capitalism but I’m working it the way I’m ‘supposed’ to. How do I feel less guilty for making myself financially healthy?”
I regret that this podcast was recorded before I could reference this joyful ~*cUrReNt eVeNtzZz*~ example of wealthy, comfortable people proving they’re still values-driven hippies at heart.
