Molly Mae, financial privilege and Bad energy (naughty OVO energy)
Welcome back to episode 2 of the Black Girl Finance Podcast.  This week we are talking about financial privilege and privilege in general, a conversation sparked by the now infamous Molly Mae conversation with Steven Barlett on his Diary of a Ceo podcast. I share my thoughts.  The second topic is the customer service failure from OVO energy. At a time when people are anxious about the imminent rising cost of energy bills amongst other financial strains, it's not the kind of customer service email you expect to get signed off, but it did, so let's explore.  This weeks episode is sponsored by the investing research app - Genuine Impact -  you'll get 14 days free trial to all Premium features, no card required.

Economic Abuse
In today's episode, I am joined by Jasbinder Kaur who is a training officer from the charity https://survivingeconomicabuse.org/.  With this episode we aim to help our listeners understand what economic abuse actually is, recognise the signs of economic abuse, and find out what support is available should a listener be experiencing economic abuse themselves, suspect someone you know may be experiencing economic abuse, or if you are an organisation that may have customers experiencing economic abuse that you are able to recognise the signs and support your clients.  Economic abuse can impact people from all walks of life and all backgrounds, however, as we discuss with Jasbinder perpetrators can play on existing vulnerabilities, for example, someone who has vulnerable immigration status, or someone from LGBTQ plus community.  Please do check out the Surviving economic abuse website for further resources.  https://survivingeconomicabuse.org/
