Beyond the Couch Ep 49: Financial Anxiety, Scarcity, & Enoughness with Lindsay Bryan-Podvin

This week, Diana chats with Lindsay Bryan-Podvin about the anxieties we have about money and how to cultivate a healthier relationship to our finances. They discuss the mental, cultural, and emotional hurdles that keep many people, especially those who identify as BIPOC or come from immigrant backgrounds, from gaining financial literacy. They talk about how to cultivate a sense of enoughness in the midst of a capitalistic society and how to approach money in a way that aligns with your values. Pointing out that current financial advice so often comes from a place of white privilege and outdated notions of “the American dream,” Lindsay also discusses how decolonizing attitudes towards debt and money can lead to greater empowerment for all.
