In the Broke-ish space, we talk about being broke—broke and black in America. We talk about all the unbelievable *ish that America has done black people to keep us in this broke-ish state.  We've been bamboozled in ways that personal finance tips and traditional financial

literacy can't fix.  Our co-hosts, Delina and Erika, are 40ish women sharing candidly about money, wealth-building and the financial urban legends that need to die. You'll hear them draw from research, statistics and personal insights to create an engaging podcast whose mission is to be a part of changing the narrative around money. Broke-ish is for those who still persevere, in spite of all the things that America, capitalism, white supremacy, have done to us as black people. We're Broke-ish. Let's talk about it.

On this episode of Broke-ish, Delina and Erika explore ideas that we need to shed in order to move forward.  Delina answers the question everyone has been asking, "why don't you like Dave Ramsey?" Though personal financial literacy is necessary, often times the thinking behind our strategies is shaky. It promotes individualism, meritocracy, judgment of others and judgment of ourselves. The co-hosts encourage Brokers to begin thinking more about us in terms of community vs. our individualistic pursuits and begin working for policy changes to close the racial wealth gap. Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None)
