Family, love, blessings, bountiful harvests—forget all that. The biggest retail week of the year is here. Is shopping on Black Friday part of your holiday tradition? Is anybody here actually considering physically going out to a store on Thursday night? With the help of our listeners and callers, hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams discussed how consumerism has nearly diluted the meaning of Thanksgiving and the Holidays, and if businesses opening on Thanksgiving day actually hurt the consumer more than help them save money.

Getting Personal with Your Finance

morningamp:

Personal finance columnist for Red Eye, Megan Crepeau, called in and joined the AMp’s Molly Adams and guest Co-Host Ernest Wilkins this morning as she dished on her latest thoughts about money and YOU. One point that was discussed was how family and friends that constantly give you advice on how you should finance your money may be well intended. And we also may need a little push of motivation when it comes to saving and organizing our money, but the results could backfire, and cause the advised to actually be more careless about their money in spite them. So how can you save money without being obsessed with it and how can you stay confident through poor financial decisions?

Good Allies Gone Bad

morningamp:

Vocalo Listener Lorrell has been thinking about what it means to be a "good ally:" how do you become part of the struggle, part of the fight, instead of just a sympathetic bystander? This morning she joined the AMp’s Molly Adams and guest co-host Luis Perez by phone as she helped answer those questions and more. One of the many important points that were made in the conversation were whether or not music artists Lady Gaga or Mackelmore, are true allies considering that they make a ton of money off of being a public voice for the gay rights movement. Profitting off of becoming a public ally for a movement certainly does raise questions on the genuinity of the advocacy and campaigning, and is not as effective of a tool as it may seem.
