Have you ever felt like you aren’t being seen or heard at the office? Or have you experienced micro-aggressions from your co-workers before? Unfortunately, you’re not alone. After writing an article in the New York Times called “How to Succeed When You’re Marginalized or Discriminated Against at Work,” my guest and journalist Alan Henry went on to write his newly released book Seen, Heard, and Paid, a book all about navigating toxic work environments and giving marginalized groups of people the tools they need to succeed in their careers.
Alan Henry is a prominent journalist, editor, and author. He was previously the Smarter Living editor at The New York Times and the editor-in-chief of the productivity and lifestyle blog Lifehacker. He is now the author of the newly released book, Seen, Heard, and Paid: The New Work Rules for the Marginalized and is the senior editor at Wired.
In this episode, Alan shares how his experiences in a toxic work environment led him to write his new book. He also shares what language to use when you experience microaggressions at work and also what quantifies as a microaggression. Alan shares the importance of having “psychology safety” at work and why his most significant tip is to keep a work diary. This is a jam-packed conversation you don’t want to miss!

If you’re an avid listener of the More Money Podcast, then you'll know that I’m a big fan of index investing and playing the long game when it comes to growing your money. But, how and when did index investing start? Luckily my guest today, author Eric Balchunas, is sharing the history of the index fund and how one man named Jack changed Wall Street forever in his new book The Bogle Effect.
Eric Balchunas is Senior ETF Analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, where he leads the ETF and fund research and contributes to Bloomberg Opinion. He is also the co-creator of the Bloomberg podcast Trillions and Bloomberg TV’s ETF IQ. He’s the author of The Bogle Effect (2022) and The Institutional ETF Toolbox (2016).
In today’s episode, we learn more about the founder of the index fund and the Vanguard Group, John Clifton “Jack” Bogle. Eric deep dives into how index funds changed Wall Street, which we're still seeing the effects of in today's investing landscape. Eric is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to index investing and ETFs. I loved being able to pick his brain and get him to share his opinion on cryptocurrency and “vanilla” vs. “hot sauce” investing. I hope you enjoy this episode too!
