Listen to Podcast Episode:
For the final episode of 2022, go behind the scenes of the podcast for some heartwarming out-takes sure to make you laugh along with Suze and KT.
Suze: We're doing a podcast together.
KT: So what date it it?
Robert: It is December 29th, 2022. Hi everyone and welcome to the Women & Money podcast and Everybody smart enough to listen. I'm Robert, Suze and KT's producer and this is the last podcast of 2022.
Robert: Every year at this time. We peel back the curtain to let you hear how fun it is to put the podcast together. Now one of my jobs as producer is to take the recording and edit it into what you hear twice a week.
Robert: And I promise you 98% of what Suze gives me is what you get to listen to. But you know how sometimes early in the morning it.. it takes a little while to get ramped up? Suze and KT are just like us. Take a listen.
KT: Good morning, Suze.
Suze: We're not starting yet, KT.
Suze: Well, we can start if you want. You sure? No wait, KT. We start by me saying the date.
Suze: October's... (laughs) where are my...
KT: Slow down! Slow down girl!
Suze: (singing) Slow down. Now. You have to make this podcast last. Okay, ready? Okay, let's do it. KT, a week from today is going to be Thanksgiving. Can you just tell me what kind of podcast we're going to do then?
KT: I'm gonna do a podcast of what we're thankful for, thankful.
Suze: Yeah, go on, go on...
KT: I'm thankful for a Roth IRA, for a backdoor, traditional Roth for a Roth IRA, for a SEP IRA, for a Roth. I'm thankful for all the variations of Roth, especially that.
KT: Back to come on. All right, let's do this. Are you sure hit it?
Suze: I don't want to hit it yet. Are you sure you're ready?
KT: I'm ready.
Suze: I want to waste any tape here, okay, go.
KT: Hello everybody, this is KT, gobble, (laughing)
KT: gobble, gobble gobble gobble podcast.
Suze: I'm trying my best.
KT: Come on, we have to get this to Robert ready. Alright, ready?
KT: Come on, you can do it, everybody,
Suze: I'm trying my best. I know. Are you ready
Suze: Now? Why in the world...
Suze: right before we're gonna do a podcast. Do you put something in your mouth?
KT: To soothe my throat, get the chords ready.
KT: It's not something, it's one of those little
KT: pastels, is that we're called pastels that you suck on to soothe your throat.
Suze: What are you going to give a performance? No, you don't have to spit it out, don't do that.
Suze: Are you kidding me?
KT: It's gone? Let's go. Ok today is you have that?
Suze: You spit that on a piece of paper.
KT: No, on my question, I'll eat it later. I'll continue. I'll continue later. Ready, Suze. Here we go. Come on
Suze: July 14, 2022..
KT: Is this Bastille Day?
Suze: Uh No, it's July
KT: Isn't July 14 Bastille Day or June ?
KT: Are you sure?
Robert: Yes, actually July 14 is Bastille Day, but what I love about that clip is that it.. it sets up another trend this year and that is being refreshed. Well, actually staying hydrated.
Suze: Well, listen to you guzzle.
KT: I didn't. I just took a sip.
Suze: You never take a watch.
KT: Watch, watch the demo.
Suze: Do not spit over all of our audio equipment.
KT: See all the noise it makes. It's a very low bottle.
KT: (Swishes water) Don't do that. That's not polite. Suze, horrible. Sorry, Robert.
KT: That is not nice. She's swishing in the microphone. Oh, stop
Suze: Squishing in the mic. So everybody though, KT, if you what are you doing? She's making noise. Are you settled in now? She's gonna drink water first. All right.
Suze: Can you hear? Alright, good. I tell her don't gulp water. It makes your stomach big, but she just doesn't want to listen to me. Okay, let's go for it. Right now.
Suze: What did you all just hear KT drinking?
KT: I was just like taking a sip of water...
Suze: What the heck when KT drinks... she just doesn't go. Whatever. Listen to her closely. Listen to this. (Loud swishing sound).
Robert: Alright, so once everybody's hydrated, then come, studio adjustments, setups and uh
KT: Roll your sleeve up.
Suze: What does my sleeve have to do?
KT: So then it doesn't catch on anything.
Suze: Okay, do you like bumping into that light that's next to you, there's this light, my tv light I move.
KT: How much time do we have?
Suze: I have no idea, right um...
KT: Wait, she has me squashed in her recording studio in a corner because she likes to
KT: look at me while I'm asking the question, but I'm in a tight... we have to take a picture of me so they can see how I sit versus you and your big cozy chair with the arms on it moves up and down. It's real soft and look at me, I'm on a little stool everybody squished in a corner. All right, ready?
Suze: Say hi to Robert,
KT: Robert, I'm gonna make a comment that she's not gonna like, but I hope you back me up. So when you answer a question,
KT: try not to stop and go stop and go, make it smoother. What? Why are you laughing? I noticed that you tend to stop and go stop...
Suze: 'Cause I don't know what I'm gonna say.
KT: So you need to think what you're gonna say and then make it a smoother answer.
Suze: And should I tell Robert how to make you better?
KT: I'm already perfect, okay, ready?
Robert: Yeah, I'm not getting in the middle of that, but Suze said something in that last clip that I get asked about from time to time and the question is do Suze and KT work off of a script? And I can tell you that they do not, now sure for the Thursday shows, KT is reading your questions off of printed piece of paper,
Robert: but as you can hear there's no rehearsal. Suze just lets the message flow through her and that's something that I absolutely love.
Suze: And how many times have I said... not lecturing you right now, I'm going to try not to lecture today, although it is so part of my personality, isn't it? A lot of you write me on the app and you go preach Suze preach. Right, But anyway, what was I gonna say now, where was I going with that?
Suze: This is going to be one of those ones like what am I talking about? But I do have a point to this one. Alright, so guess how much you would have made if you had invested in that at the beginning of the year? Well, let me find out Robert because I don't know. Hold on.
Robert: Of course, standing in her truth, Suze will always make sure she's giving you the most accurate information at the time.
Robert: Now, sometimes in the middle of the podcast, Suze and KT just can't help but laugh. And they have to, they have to redo a couple of takes.
Suze: See what happens when you disturb me and then I can't do it again after that.
KT: I'm going to pick this up from the top. So Suze, our first question is from Marianne, she said my son is having a destination wedding. I am semi retired but I work part time. So Suze, um... sorry take 17.
Suze: She's blaming this on me Robert, like it's my fault.
KT: This is next question. The first question... the first question we have today is from Marianne.
Suze: Take 25. (Laughs)
KT: First question is from Marianne, Robert. Do not put that in.
Suze: I really (laughs),
KT: (Laughs) The next question I can answer
KT: Robert, do not put that in.
Suze: Robert, you can bleep that out
KT: Actually. We never did that. That would be funny when you're all going to get to meet Suze's family, (laughing)
KT: they're all going to be part of it. (laughing)
KT: So I try to put together a really good synopsis of combined topics and questions. Some of them are straightforward, but some of them are a little bit um generic so that hopefully I can answer four questions with one question.
Suze: Can we get something straight, you are not the one answering these questions
KT: Ready? Here's the first one...
Suze: FIFO is...
Suze: So listen to me. FIFO is first in and first out
Suze: laugh into the mic if you're gonna do it so they can hear you.
Robert: I have to tell you it is the highlight of my week putting this show together and Suze and KT's laughter actually, I don't know if it's scientifically proven, but as far as I'm concerned it's a de-stressor. So I hope it helped you wind down this year. We have a lot of great things planned for next year. Thank you for listening. Suze will be back this coming Sunday to kick off 2023 but until then...
KT: That's the end of our podcast... (laughing)
KT: and she's so mad at me.
Suze: You shouldn't laugh when I get mad at you.
KT: Alright everybody I want you to feel strong, safe and secure.
Suze: Alright? So and now they're all wondering why I'm mad at you.
KT: Because I just moved a pile of papers when she was in the middle of an answer and made a big noise and she gets so mad...
Suze: And join me on Sunday for Suze School. See you then, bye bye.
Suze: How many kisses?
KT: Here, watch... (makes kissing noises)
KT: Count them.
Suze: I can't
KT: It was nine.
KT: You stay strong. You taste saf... Good luck Robert.
