Real Life Podcast: The Day the Music Died

We’ve kicked off season 2 of our Real Life podcast in collaboration with The Life Foundation, on a mission to hear first-hand stories and see the real impact that life insurance has on families across America.

In our first episode, we meet Shane LaBarge, who lost his father right after starting his first semester of college in 2011 and was quickly thrust into the role of breadwinner for his mom and younger brother.

We discuss the immediate financial impact of his father’s death, working over 40 hours a week (on top of his studies) to put himself through college and law school, and the feeling of financial uncertainty that his family still carries with them today.
