Think your 401k rocks? In our headlines segment today we'll share a story from an author who thinks your retirement plan isn't all that it can be. Should you stop investing? Reduce the amount you save into it? We'll tackle both of those questions with Paula Pant from Afford Anything and Andrew Wang from the new podcast Inspired Money. They'll also help us cap off 2017 with a discussion about 2018. Fewer people are making money-based resolutions. Does that mean our finances are going to be a mess next year? 

We'll also answer two questions from listeners, share Doug's trivia, and more. 

Today we'll also introduce you to CollegeBacker. Co-founder Abby Chao joins us to detail the frustrations people have saving for college and how they're working at making 529 plan savings easy. Think it's difficult to save for college? You'll want to listen to today's interview. Can't wait for you to hear all about it.
