142: Dear Debt

Mental health and money aren’t two topics that you hear discussed together very often. Today’s guest, Melanie Lockert, has made it her mission to create a space where these discussions can be had. Melanie and I discuss her talk at a recent Plutus Voices event and why it is important to have these conversations.
