It really does work! They're called "Generation Debt" and "Generation Broke" by the media-people in their twenties and thirties who graduate from college with a mountain of student loan debt and are stuck with one of the weakest job markets in recent history. The goals of their parents' generation-buy a house, support a family, send kids to college, retire in style-seem absurdly, depressingly out of reach. They live off their credit cards, may or may not have health insurance, and come up so far short at the end of the month that the idea of saving money is a joke. This generation has it tough, without a doubt, but they're also painfully aware of the urgent need to take matters into their own hands.

The legend goes that all of us who transplant to San Francisco were all once residents in the Lost City of Atlantis. You can always tell when you meet someone who is in love with this great city.
Broke Ass Stuart , San Francisco's beloved and dirty-mouthed arbiter of cheap, is getting his own show. With the rallying cry that "broke ass" is a state of mind rather than an account balance, the show makes stops in New Orleans, Baltimore, San Diego, Boston, Detroit and Memphis, following Schuffman as he sleuths out the fringe. It's not about the things that you own, it's about the things that you do. We caught up with Schuffman to talk the show and being a "broke ass" in SF. I did an interview with Gothamist in New York and they asked me, "What do you want next?
