About the videos

The six short videos show examples of conversations about money in situations that many people find embarrassing or stressful. Many of the videos have a ‘Take 1 and Take 2’ format – these videos show two conversations for each situation. Take 1 is the conversation where people respond to each other with irritation or judgement and a lack of consideration for the other person’s situation. Take 2 shows a conversation about the same topic where both people acknowledge the challenges of the situation and talk about how to do things fairly.
