Dale attempts to soothe our collective unease during this tense election period with an episode focused on balance and value. While the mood outside may be filled with anxiety, in the Deep Night things are safe and warm and the air smells faintly of pumpkin spice. Dale welcomes weary listeners to this place of audio comfort, where he’s joined by fellow podcast host and Libra, Lindsay Goldwert. Lindsay is a journalist, comedian, and creator of SPENT, a weekly financial podcast that explores our complicated, often comical relationship to money. Because we’re all enduring some form of distress, politically or financially, Dale invited Lindsay on to talk through some ways that can help alleviate, or at least distract us, from our suffering. The two discuss the currency of jokes, debate-induced insomnia, and finding solace in true crime stories about human survival.
Lindsay’s podcast SPENT can be found on www.spentpodcast.com or on itunes and wherever you access your favorite audio programs. You can also follow Lindsay for great advice and funny takes on the world’s events, by finding her on twitter @lindsaygoldwert .
