Meet The Money Donuts® Hosts


Steve Dayton


Steve is the curious host, asking all the right questions (usually) and helping to take the financial conversations of Money Donuts® to the next level with his humorous insights. His easygoing nature and ready laughter makes him a natural host. He’s also a dad of four kids, has two cats and a dog, and he moonlights as an indie filmmaker! When he’s not hosting, you’ll find him interviewing Royal Members for Royal videos, watching movies with family, or playing with his kids in the backyard.

Cooper Larson


We like to think of host Cooper as the coffee to go with Money Donuts®! Her lively (often caffeine-powered) energy and informed opinions turn talks about everyday financial things into serious food for thought. Apartments, dogs, donuts, and financial education are just a few of Cooper’s favorite things. Outside of being a podcaster, you’ll find Cooper providing financial education in Royal’s local communities, helping to manage local sports teams, cheering on her favorite hockey team, or untangling her Roomba from her laptop cord for the nineteenth time.

James Plendl


A self-professed technology nerd, James loves going down a rabbit hole and getting to the bottom of things on Money Donuts®. He loves helping others make informed decisions about everything to do with money and isn’t afraid to seek honest answers to any money question. James has three kids and no pets, balancing out Cooper’s love of furry friends. When the mic is switched off, James writes helpful how-to content for Royal Members, enjoys playing the occasional video game, and in warmer months he can be found riding his local bike trails.
