This Is Uncomfortable

By Marketplace

“This Is Uncomfortable” is a show about life and how money messes with it. Each week, Reema Khrais digs in with stories about the unanticipated ways money affects relationships, shapes identities and often defines what it means to be an adult. Khrais dives into uncomfortable topics like friends borrowing money, relationships and the other varied ways money shapes who we are. Khrais’ career has included a two-year position as a Fletcher Fellow focused on education policy reporting. She is a graduate of the University of North Carolina’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication, where she earned a degree in electronic communication and political science. Join Reema as she cuts through the uncomfortable to get to the root of how money plagues us. Produced and distributed by American Public Media, you can find “This Is Uncomfortable” wherever you get your podcasts.
