This is a must listen if you know someone preparing to go to college, or if you happen to be in that boat yourself! Our guest today is Ron Lieber who has been the Your Money columnist for the New York Times since 2008 and is a three-time winner of the Gerald Loeb Award which is financial and business journalism’s highest honor. He is the author of multiple books including the recently released “The Price You Pay for College” which is already a definitive guide to help parents and students think through important decisions about the cost of college and if it’s worth it. We talk through how college actually doesn’t cost quite as much as you think it does, how you can get more financial aid from the colleges you’re interested in, some of the best ways to bring down the cost overall, as well as plenty more on the topic of higher education.

Head over to to learn more about Ron and what he’s up to!
