Let's change how we talk about money.

Guests: Margaret & Leif Jacobsen

Let’s talk about money.

We've always been told it's impolite, but on Open Account, host SuChin Pak embraces the discussion. Why is money so stressful, confusing and laden with complexity? It doesn't have to be. We believe that when we open up and share, the social taboo begins to lose its grip on our decisions, our conversations, and our everyday lives. Join us as we uncover real stories from real people about making, losing and living with money. This is Open Account; honest conversations about money, with the people who use it. Scroll down to listen to all available episodes of season 3, and check out seasons 1 and 2.


Sixty one years ago a small town in Southern Oregon didn't have a bank, so the community came together and built one. Today, we're the West Coast's largest community bank, with over 400 locations and experts in everything from personal and business banking to commercial and home lending.

We're here to empower conversations around finance, and help our neighbors get wherever they're trying to go.


Our flagship stores are designed to foster the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of the communities we serve. You're invited to host a private meeting, use a conference room, or reserve the entire store for special events.

Devoted retail space showcases local businesses - we sell their goods and pass on all the proceeds. Additional amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, computers, printers, and our signature coffee and tea.
