So Money - Episode 299

Farnoosh Torabi (Replay)

Host of So Money

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I’m reporting to you from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, from the home where my husband grew up. I’m feeling very grateful this year for my healthy and beautiful son Evan, my best friend and husband Tim and my supportive and loving family. I’m thankful to have a career I love, a home, my health. This year I’ll be thinking and praying for all of the families all over states and abroad in Paris, Syria and the middle east. I forget sometimes how lucky I am. My parents came here more or less fleeing their homeland of Iran in the late 70s, early 80s, when the country was in the midst of a dark war and revolution. I would not be here if the United States didn’t grant my dad a permit to stay here and work and ultimately earn his citizenship along with my mom.

For today’s episode, we’re doing a throwback to MY interview recorded back in July. My guest host – Joe Saul Sehy of Stacking Benjamins– you just heard him on the podcast earlier discussing our charity competition. He put me in the hots eat and asked me the very same questions I ask of my guests. I shared things with him I don’t think I’ve shared with anyone…Hope you’ll enjoy it.

Wishing you and your family a blessed holiday. Wishing you health, wealth and happiness.


4 days left! November is all about giving back at So Money! 

I’ve partnered with Joe Saul-Sehy, host of the Stacking Benjamins podcast to host a charity fundraiser/competition the entire month. He and I have each selected a personal charity and our goal is to raise tons of money with your help. 
The So Money charity is THON, a dance marathon and the largest student-run philanthropy held at Pennsylvania State University (my alma mater!) that helps raise money and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. You can donate here.
The Stacking Benjamins charity is Texas 4000, a 4,000 mile bike ride that University of Texas students take to raise money for cancer research and cancer related causes. You can donate here.
The podcast that receives the MOST money for its charity will win the chance to write the introduction to the other person’s podcast in January (buhahah!) 
We’ll keep you updated throughout the month!
