In this episode I (alongside former co-host Garrett Philbin) chat with Brynne Conroy, the author of The Feminist Financial Handbook. Her book provides real motivation and resources for women who may be struggling—not only those who have already accumulated wealth. We talk about what it means to maintain autonomy in your relationship when it comes to finances, including what separate accounts may be necessary and how to look out for your best interest as well as your partners.
