As you’re getting all the ingredients you need for that Thanksgiving feast, we’re going to distract you for a little bit as we kick off yet another show with Molly from the Bay Area who’s wondering what she should do with an old 401(k) from a previous employer. Should she roll it into her new plan or is there a better alternative?

Next up was Kristen from Portland who’s wondering if she should ditch her condo, which is already paid off, and buy a house?

Our guest in hour two, Belinda Luscombe, would rather have had her eyes put out than read a book about marriage; they all seemed full of advice that was obvious, useless, or bad. Plus they were boring. 

But after covering the relationship beat for Time magazine for ten years, she realized there was a surprisingly upbeat and little-known story to tell about the benefits of staying together for the long haul. Hence her recently released book, Marriageology: The Art and Science of Staying Together.

Casting a witty, candid, and probing eye on the latest behavioral science, Luscombe has written a fresh and persuasive report on the state of our unions, how they’ve changed from those of our parents’ era, and what those changes mean for the happiness of this most intimate and important of our relationships.

In Marriageology Luscombe examines the six major fault lines that can fracture contemporary marriages, also known as the F-words: familiarity, fighting, finances, family, fooling around, and finding help. 

She presents facts, debunks myths, and provides a fascinating mix of research, anecdotes, and wisdom from a wide range of approaches, from how properly dividing up chores can result in a better sex life to the benefits of fighting with your spouse to whether or not to tell your partner that you lost $70,000. (The last one is from firsthand experience.)

Marriageology offers simple, actionable, maybe even borderline fun techniques and tips to try, whether the relationship in question is about to conk out or just needs a little grease and an oil change. The best news of all is that sticking together is easier than it looks.

This week we’re just answering email questions. The year is quickly slipping away and the inbox is still severely backed up, so it’s time to get cracking!

Questions included my favorite topic of annuities, retirement planning, reducing taxes, mortgages and more!

Many of us recently wrapped up our summer vacations. I was able to take a nice two week break. I was hoping for three but wasn’t able to pull it off.

Our guest today, Ben Feder, encountered no such obstacle when he decided to take six months off. Yes, six months! Okay, that’s not quite a vacation, it’s more of a sabbatical.

And as he outlines in his recent book, Take Off Your Shoes: One Man’s Journey from the Boardroom to Bali and Back, it was the classic struggle of achieving that highly sought after work-life balance that led to Feder calling a timeout on his professional life.

Described as the The Eat, Pray, Love for busy executives, Take Off Your Shoes invites the reader to join a journey of self-rediscovery.

A hard-charging CEO of a large enterprise, Feder discovers that he is losing the very things that sustained him over his years of business success. Unsettled by his insight and determined to rebuild family relationships and rejuvenate his sense of purpose, he risks his career on a life-altering physical and emotional journey.

Together with his wife and children, Feder sets off for an exotic island on a self-prescribed sabbatical year. That experience transforms them all.

The writing is honest and moving, baring the author’s innermost struggles and fears, and enticing the reader to share his quest. As Feder navigates the thrills and pitfalls of his time away, he draws us into the examinations of values and priorities we all encounter in adult life.
