046 - Elon Musk - $10 Million to Stop Computers From Destroying Humanity
Elon Musk is a Billionaire Entrepreneur, but if he had it his way, he’d go down in history as a meme lord. If that sentence confuses you, be assured it confused Stacy even more. Jonathan and Stacy dive deep into the way Elon Musk spends his mountains of cash. From Supercars that turn into submarines straight out of a James Bond film, to website domains that have no right being owned by a 47 year old man. Plus learn the many ways in which computers will take over and destroy humanity thanks to Artificial Intelligence, and what Elon Musk is doing to save us all.

So when a normal person gets that first big Hollywood paycheck, they spend it like there’s no tomorrow. This week Jonathan and Stacy discuss celebrity first purchases from 11 different celebs.

John McAfee, inventor of McAfee Antivirus Software, has led a life most of us would only see in our nightmares. He is Stacy’s most disliked celebrity to date, and Jonathan is way too into it. Buckle up as we go from drug fueled trips in the 60s, to a murder trial in 2012, and finish on a 2016 presidential campaign. Yeah, John McAfee ran for President.This week, instead of guessing if the purchases are real, Jonathan has gathered the best events from John McAfee’s life for Stacy to figure out what actually happened and what is pure farce.

040 - Richard Branson - $876,000 a Year on Tea
How many people can say they’ve kite surfed while giving a nude model a piggy back ride AND started a multinational company that owns over 400 businesses? So far the only one we know about is Richard Branson, founder and owner of Virgin Records, Virgin Airlines, Virgin Mobile, and don’t forget Virgin Galactic, the space flight company. This week Stacy teaches Jonathan the very important difference between a houseboat and a boathouse and Jonathan stuns Stacy with Richard Branson’s highly suggestive book titles. Will Stacy be fooled again? Or can she read Jonathan like a poorly titled book? $20,000 on a Houseboat $180,000 on an Island $200,000 on an Amphibious Car $876,000 a Year on Tea The post 040 – Richard Branson – $876,000 a Year on Tea appeared first on How It's Paid.

039 - Paris Hilton - $325,000 Dog Villa
Paris Hilton is known for being rich, ditzy, and saying “that’s hot” all the time… but is there more to her? Maybe? She seems awfully busy. From being a top DJ to selling over 20 fragrances, Paris somehow finds time to pamper her dogs, donate to charity, dress like a PowerPuff Girl, and make observations about social currency and social media. Plus her Instagram is just plain weird. And as a special bonus, you get to hear what it sounds like when a man who’s taken three taekwondo classes tries to break nine wooden boards above his head in a single jump… sort of.

038 - Jaden Smith - $1380 on Gold Grills for His Mom's 45th Birthday
Jaden Smith, son of Will Smith, and brother to Willow Smith, is an enigma. You can’t pin him down and Jonathan is fascinated by that. Stacy, on the other hand, is a bit annoyed by this episode. Bonus points for whoever counts how many times Stacy says “I don’t like that” in this week’s podcast. From Bizarre birthday gifts, to tweets that really make you ponder your own existence as a human, Jaden Smith keeps it interesting. This may be the celebrity Jonathan feels he connects with the most, and the celebrity Stacy truly hopes she never has to meet. $1,380 on Custom Gold Grills $130,000 on Tesla Model X $4,860 on Crystals for Kylie Jenner The post 038 – Jaden Smith – $1,380 on Gold Grills for His Mom’s 45th Birthday appeared first on How It's Paid.

Jonathan did a lot of research this week and may actually have given some sound financial advice (much to the annoyance of Stacy).
