Investing can be scary, especially if you're just starting out. What if your money evaporates overnight? What if some unforeseen event happens and my investments are wiped out? And with most of us relying on our investments to get us through retirement years, to pay for college, or other goals, it's natural to be worried. While we can't totally eliminate investment risk, we can do a pretty good job reducing risk... if you know how. That's why we're bringing the author of Slash Your Retirement Risk, Chris Cook, down to the basement. We'll talk to Chris about how you can make practical, safe investments to see you through your retirement years, and still keep the money rolling while you do it.

Then our headlines segment, UBS has been ordered to pay out millions in a Puerto Rico bonds claim. Plus, during our second headline we cross over to the other side and hear the confessions of a debt collector. Of course that's not all!  We'll throw out the Haven Life line to Mike, who has a pile of cash to invest. He already has a few ideas, but wants to know what we think. And in our letters segment Willis wants to know if taking the tax hit for a backdoor Roth contribution with his two rollover IRAs is worth it. Thoughts? And don't you worry, we'll still have time for Doug's trivia.
