About this audiobook

The beloved writer-comedian expands on her popular podcast with an engaging and empowering financial literacy audiobook for Millennials and Gen Z.

In the first episode of her Bad with Money podcast, Gaby Dunn asked patrons at a coffee shop two questions: First, what’s your favorite sex position? Everyone was game to answer, even the barista. Then, she asked how much money was in their bank accounts. People were aghast. “That’s a very personal question,” they insisted. And therein lies the problem.

Dunn argues that our inability to speak honestly about money is our number-one barrier to understanding it, leading us to feel alone, ashamed, and anxious, which in turns makes us feel even more overwhelmed by it. In Bad with Money, she reveals the legitimate, systemic reasons behind our feeling of helplessness when it comes to personal finance, demystifying the many signposts on the road to getting our financial shit together, like how to choose an insurance plan or buy a car, sign up for a credit card or take out student loans. She speaks directly to her audience, offering advice on how to make that #freelancelyfe work for you, navigate money while you date, and budget without becoming a Nobel-winning economist overnight.

Even a topic as notoriously dry as money becomes hilarious and engaging in the hands of Dunn, who weaves her own stories with the perspectives of various comedians, artists, students, and more, arguing that — even without selling our bodies to science or suffering the indignity of snobby thrift-shop buyers — we can all start taking control of our financial futures.

  • Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
    I’ve been a Gaby Dunn fan for years and have always appreciated their hard-hitting yet fun approach. This book is a great financial primer, and you should consider giving it to your favorite Gen Z friend or family member, particularly if they are queer and/or a member of another group historically left out of money talk. Entertaining and educational, and I love the way Gaby’s voice and audio performance bring the book to life.

    Interesting book with a lot of good advice but would be more helpful to someone in a younger demographic - late teens and early to mid-twenties.
