Kimberly... Great podcast as usual. I was wanting to contact Sarah Kaplan, but I notice the link brings up an "account suspended" screen. Do you know how I can reach her? Is the email address provided in the podcast still work even though her web site isn't accessible right now? Thanks so much.

Another wonderful podcast! Let me chime in with another book recommendation as well
It's an amazing book, it really chimes in with the sentiment that the money you spend is a reflection of yourself.

I just started listening to your podcast a week ago, from the beginning, and I'm just now listening to this one. I mean, I still hear you talking as I type. I had to take a minute, though, and ask-- What was that loud thump towards the beginning? You seemed to have giggled a bit, but the curiousity is driving me batty. What was the bump?
