Asheville: The Other Music City

We always get the question; where is your favorite place you’ve traveled recently? Currently, one of our favorite places we’ve traveled this year has to be Asheville, North Carolina. If Portland and Nashville would have made a kid, it might be Asheville. With beautiful mountain scenery, Asheville has it all: one of the first and best beer cultures, a booming food haven and a thriving music scene. Pretty much all the boxes we like to check in any city!

This Podcast Episode:

Join us for this special travel episode of Millennial Money, as we explore the other music city. Showing us around their city of Asheville are three locals and new friends of the podcast.

We have Graham Sharpe of the band Steep Canyon Rangers, who are currently opening for Steve Martin and Martin Short’s national tour talks about the eclectic music scene and what draws people to Asheville these days.

Caroline Roy, the owner of Asheville hot spot Biscuit Head, chats about why Asheville is “the” town to visit and start a business in.

To wrap up our tour of Asheville, Chef Mike Moore of Aux Bar gives us some insight into the booming food scene and some tips on where to find some underground music.

My co-host for the podcast is my husband, Jeff Game, a travel, and music journalist that’s always on the hunt for a good story to tell.

Finding Your True Voice with Ry Bradley

California-based and Hawaiian-reared singer/songwriter Ry Bradley is out to break that Nashville country music stereotype mold that holds back so many singers from blossoming into true artists. Bradley is looking for authenticity and experience in his songwriting. The world is taking notice of his talents as some of his songs have been featured on such hit TV series as NBC’s Chicago Med & ABC Family’s The Fosters.

On This Episode:

My co-host for the podcast is my husband, Jeff Game, a travel, and music journalist that’s always on the hunt for a good story to tell.

Ry has a brand new openly personal, yet rocking new album, Everything I’ve Got, including the song “Next Aldean Show,” which not only pays tribute to the shooting victims of the Las Vegas Route 91 Music Festival last year, all proceeds go to the survivors and family members. Ry is also involved in Women in Rock event, and recently held his own rock and roll camp for young musicians in Norway.

Let us introduce you guys to Ry Bradley as we spoke with the very down-to-earth young star from his home in Orange County, California. Bradley opened up about how splitting time as a kid of divorce in Hawaii and California shaped his musical pallet, what it takes to carve your own path in life and the power of Adele’s singing voice.

Topics We Talked About:

  • Being a millennial himself
  • Always giving back, helping to make the world a better place
  • Carving your own path in music and life
  • Vegas shooting, raising money for victims and their families

The Power of Small Daily Money Habits with Clarity Money + Ask Shannah


We face a new type of reality when it comes to managing our finances. From mounting student loan debt, keeping track of all subscription services like Netflix and Spotify and more simply, trying to pay rent and buy groceries — it’s overwhelming to figure out where to start.

One of my fav money management/budgeting apps is Clarity Money. I use it myself (I’m a big fan) and went straight to Colin Kennedy, the Chief Operating Officer & Revenue Officer of Clarity Money to explore the power of small daily money habits and how you can use them to empower your money.

Episode Details:

There are a million apps on the market to manage your money and budget more effectively. I’ve tried them all myself and one that has found a permanent home on my phone is Clarity Money. It really is different than most of the budgeting & saving apps and has made a big difference in how I manage my money every day.

I was excited to have Colin from Clarity Money on this episode to dig beneath the surface of the app and talk about how you can use the concept of daily money habits to revolutionize your finances. Yes, I’m talking game-changing perspectives here.

Blockchain 101 & How It Will Impact Your Future Wallet With Kendi Lane

Blockchain, cryptocurrency, bitcoin – say what? There are a lot of confusing terms out there, and I wanted to get to the bottom of it. We have all heard about bitcoin – it was on the tip of everyone’s tongue a few months ago and people were investing in it that have never even invested in their 401(k) or IRA (yikes). What about blockchain – the technology that needed to exist before bitcoin? I think it’s time to roll up our sleeves and figure this out.

On This Podcast Episode:

Kendi joined us on the podcast way back in November 2017 talking all things bitcoin. If you haven’t taken a listen to that episode, you need to!

Led by Bitcoin and Ether, cryptocurrencies have lost 10% of their combined value over the last week. Bitcoin on Tuesday dropped 4.5%, and Ethereum — after dropping 17% on Monday — fell another 7% on Tuesday. The total market value of cryptocurrencies worldwide is now at its lowest since November, according to The Wall Street Journal.

So, is this technology something you should put your money into and how will it impact your future wallet (because it isn’t going anywhere). Kendi is a force to be reckoned with and a super smart chic who knows her stuff when it comes to blockchain and the perfect millennial expert to school us all.

Ask Shannah: Dealing with Student Loans and Debt

In this #AskShannah episode, I’m tackling two complex questions about student loans. Everything from borrowing money from your 401(k) to pay off your student loans, to dealing with student loan debt when you’re in a relationship.

In This Podcast Episode:

Thanks for all the great #AskShannah questions that are coming in. As always, remember you can always submit a question anonymously so I won’t disclose your name when I’m reading over the question.

I’m covering two questions on this episode that I think most of us could relate to in some way. As a reminder, they call this personal finance because it is just that – personal. When you’re making a money decision, you should weigh the pros and cons and then come to a decision that feels good to you and makes sense based on your lifestyle.

  • My question to you is, what benefits (or drawbacks) could there be if I were to take a loan from my 401(k) to pay off my student loans?
  • Which leads me to my question.. Am I wrong to think that having him put some money in a high yield savings account, could help him to pay off his student loans faster due to compounding growth?  

Tune in to hear my thoughts and feel free to send me your own #AskShannah question for a future episode.
