In this episode with guest, Joseph Reinke, the CEO of FitBUX, we discuss whether or not we are currently headed towards a student loan bubble. A few weeks ago I was watching The Big Short, which is a great movie that provides some insight into what led to the housing market crash a decade ago. Watching it, it all eerily reminded me of what is currently happening with how we use student loans when it comes to higher education. Immediately there was one person I thought of who could help enlighten me about whether there would be any connections. Enter Joe Reinke, the CEO of FitBUX. Are we headed for a student loan bubble? Find out tomorrow morning.

In this episode I go on a little bit of a vent session about the emotional toll debt can take on a person. I have to admit I go on a little bit of a soapbox about the cost of education and I get passionate about the real emotional consequences that cost has. I don't like to look at the negative side of life, but being transparent is important to me, and not every day is the most positive. Leave a comment if you agree, disagree, or just need to vent too!
One of the hardest things about being in the healthcare world is keeping ourselves and our patients accountable with completing home exercises.

Often times we feel alone when we start thinking about our financial situations, especially students faced with the overwhelming burden of massive student loan debt. A friend of mine, Ryan Bourdo, a Student Physical Therapist at Regis University, recently wrote a wonderful blog post about his experience handling his student loans. You can read the full article here or by clicking the button above!
Here's a brief snippet of Ryan's blog post, "My Student Financial Situation".
"Perhaps having a vague goal of the future is what is keeping from you from really planning your money out. Or maybe you feel that your debt is scary and ignore it. Or just simply think, “That’s future *your name here*’s problem.” However, what I, and almost everyone who touches finances, believe is that the time is now to work on your own debt and finances. Really, the time was yesterday but you’re here now and that is what matters."

This week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Professor of Economics at Temple University, Dr. Doug Webber, Ph.D about student loan debt from a macro level. Doug is one of the nicest and brightest people I have had the pleasure of talking with. He has been published in FiveThirtyEight.com and has such an incredible perspective about higher education policy.
Have you ever wondered where all of that tuition money goes to? Are colleges and universities just pocketing huge sums of money? How can we curb the amount of student loan debt from an institutional level? I ask Doug all of these questions and more in this episode.
