You can afford anything, but not everything. We make daily decisions about how to spend money, time, energy, focus, and attention – and ultimately, our life. How do we make smarter decisions? How do we think from principles? On the surface, Afford Anything seems like a podcast about money and investing, but under the hood, this is a show about how to think critically, recognize our behavioral blind spots, and make smarter choices to build a better life. We’re into the psychology of money, and we love metacognition – thinking about how to think. We interview world-class experts: professors, researchers, scientists, authors; we answer your questions, and we talk through decision-making frameworks and mental models.
