Doing Well By Doing Good...with Real Estate (with Eddie Lorin)
At least one real estate investor is doing his best work by bringing affordable real estate to the masses. From, we welcome Eddie Lorin, who'll share how you can purchase and create real estate opportunities that in his words, "do well by doing good." We'll also talk about real estate in different areas of the country and about trends in real estate investing and rehabilitation. Whether you're a seasoned real estate investor or a newbie, there'll be something for you to like. In our headlines segment... do you think emergency funds are overrated? If you're not setting money aside for the unexpected (it's called an "emergency fund" after all), you might find yourself hitching rides from Neighbor Doug just to show up at work on time. Plus, in our second headline, should we be worried about the cost of a long-term care stay? One publication suggests we should be estimating and funding long-term care a little differently. Then, we'll throw out the Haven Life Line to Derrick and his wife, who need to reduce their tax liability. What are their options? Don't worry though. We promise to save time to answer a letter and also swallow a dose of Doug's icy trivia. Thanks to Slack for supporting Stacking Benjamins.  Slack: Where work happens. Go to to learn more.

We Heart Better Money Communication (with Walter Wisniewski and Allison Vanaski)
We're celebrating Valentine's Day in true money podcast fashion, talking all things romantic, like wine, spreadsheets, money dates, and open communication about money. We romance. Joining us to discuss all of these things and more are a father-daughter financial planning team of Walter Wisniewski and Allison Vanaski. We'll also talk about non-verbal money cues (what is your significant other NOT telling you about money, but is showing you?), why we're afraid of money chats, and how to discuss financial topics with aging parents and non-family members. We're talking all things communication on today's show! Plus, in our headlines segment, do credit scores factor in to how we look at love? Does good and bad credit matter in the dating world? We'll talk statistics and love with Jonathan Walker from The Center For The New Middle Class. Plus, Joe and OG will discuss one piece that covers 5 mistakes you could be making with your money. Later on, we throw out the Haven Life Line to Zac and his wife. They've recently discovered the FIRE movement and now want to retire by 50. With conventional logic suggesting to invest into accounts that won't be available under after 50, where should Zac and his wife be looking to invest with Fire in mind? Plus, we're also answering a letter from Any Mouse, who wants to know if he has enough assets to cover his son in the event that something happened to him. And don't worry... we'll still take some time for Doug's trivia. Thanks to the Murder Book Podcast for supporting StackingBenjamins.

Battle of the Sexes: Who's the Better Investor?
Are men or women better investors? We'll find out today...but who cares? Regardless, don't you want to emulate the traits of the BEST investors? Alexandra Taussig from Fidelity Investments joins us to share some finding from a new study on the sexes. We'll detail who invests and saves better and throw you some tips that'll turn you into a saving and investing machine. In our headlines segment we continue the conversation about investing, by focusing on a piece about chasing gains. Feel like your portfolio isn't moving as it should? You probably don't want to make the moves SOME investors are making lately. It could cost you plenty.  Of course that's not all....we STILL have time to throw out the Haven Life line, bring on Doug's trivia, share some bad jokes, and lots more.... Huge thanks to Roofstock and for helping us with today's show and through the years on this show. They're awesome companies and if you're not using them, I'm not sure you know what you're missing!
