Description

“This Is Uncomfortable” is a show about life and how money messes with it. Each week, Reema Khrais digs in with stories about the unanticipated ways money affects relationships, shapes identities and often defines what it means to be an adult. Khrais dives into uncomfortable topics like friends borrowing money, relationships and the other varied ways money shapes who we are. Khrais’ career has included a two-year position as a Fletcher Fellow focused on education policy reporting. She is a graduate of the University of North Carolina’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication, where she earned a degree in electronic communication and political science. Join Reema as she cuts through the uncomfortable to get to the root of how money plagues us. Produced and distributed by American Public Media, you can find “This Is Uncomfortable” wherever you get your podcasts.

WeWork too much (rerun)

When WeWork acquired her company, she got executive training, fancy corporate retreats and a dope Patagonia jacket. It was almost enough to make her forget everything she lost. This week: Why we’re so obsessed with our jobs, even though they’ll never love us back. This is a rerun of one of our favorite stories from last season. We’re back with new episodes on September 17 and we’re still doing weekly newsletters between now and then. Subscribe at marketplace.org/comfort.
