“I’ll wear somethin’ spooky.”

NX: REVEALED! This week, join Brandon, Liz, Tom and Heidi as they (finally) react to Nintendo’s Switch and the latest update to Animal Crossing. Then, after the break, we refuse to spoil Doctor Strange (but try to talk about it anyway) and clap for Overwatch’s new hacker, Sombra. Oh– and read a listener email about quitting your job!

We hope you enjoy the show and laugh with us. America needs it right now.

    So, I agree with Liz 100% about having the 6 month emergency cash fund. I call it ‘Fuck you money’ and having that saved my ass in 2009. When the housing crisis was going on I was working for a small home renovation company and by 09 I was doing a mix of free lance, contract and part time work and that ‘Fuck you money’ was the thing that covered the gap between what I was making and getting the bills paid.

    Also, talking about retirement, if a 401k is not for you, take a look at an IRA? There are different kinds, but they are all retirement accounts, with good tax breaks.

      Wow, financial advice is really leaning hard into NPR territory.

  2. Thanks for the advice, all the extra hours I’ve been working have been going to a savings for a new car/starting a shop so I’ve been working on a nest egg in a way for a couple of years. I need to start putting money towards an IRA though, you’re right. I’ll look into the tips and see if I can put them to good use.

    Side note, this is the song in question that was playing while I wrote the email. I dare you to look me in the eyes and tell me that it doesn’t sound like Spanish Flea took a turn for the Cyberpunk. And why is he shirtless?! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGEKWd48sSM
