The show is co-hosted by L.A. radio personality Jeff Levy.

When Disaster Strikes

In light of the recent flood tornadoes that ripped through the Midwest, we’ll be talking about the aftermath and why identity thieves love to target victims of natural disasters. Tune in to find out what you can do to make sure you’re prepared and why it’s important to have a plan in place before the next disaster strikes.

ARM Reset — Disaster Looming?

Remember those five year ARMs that were so popular back in the early part of the mortgage boom? Now fast-forward five years as all those adjustable-rate mortgage loans begin to reset over the next 13 months. Do we have a second mortgage meltdown on our hands?  We’ll talk to Dr. Joe Mason, an expert on the sub-prime mortgage crisis, to find out what’s in store for the average homeowner and how these ARM resets could potentially impact the already struggling real estate industry.

Soldiers Under Financial Fire

The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is a 100-year-old organization that counsels active and retired Navy and Marine Corps service members about predatory lending, identity theft, and the laws that protect them.  Navy-Marine Corp Relief Society’s Jan C. Gaudio, Chief Operations Officer and retired Navy Captain and Director, Barry White will be joining us to talk about the financial issues facing military service members. We’ll be addressing big picture problems on why our service members are so vulnerable and what’s being done to protect the men and women while they serve our country and fight to keep our right to freedom.
