You probably don't need to be reminded that $325,000 is more than most people make in a year. The median income for a family of four in 2014 was $53,657 -- what Clinton made about a sixth of the way into that one speech.
And that was one of 22 speeches Bill Clinton gave last year. The NAM speech was the most lucrative, but Bill earned more than $5 million combined from those 20 days of work. Since the Clintons left the White House, Bill and Hillary Clinton have been paid more than $150 million from speeches alone.
The numbers above exclude speeches for which fees went directly to the Clinton Family Foundation, the couple's non-profit organization. In addition, Bill Clinton told NBC last year that he gave 10 percent of what he makes annually to the foundation, as reported by Politico.
Clinton speeches have become a campaign issue. Hillary Clinton's primary opponent, Bernie Sanders, has repeatedly called for her to release the transcripts of a series of speeches she gave to the finance firm Goldman Sachs in 2013, which Clinton so far has refused to do.
But Goldman Sachs is hardly the only financial company to which either Clinton gave a speech. The Post compiled all of the speeches given by the couple and created this tool to let you search for companies of which you may have heard. Try searching for "Goldman" or "bank." You may need to scroll down.
We see numbers like $150 million and it tends to lose some sense of scale. After all, "150" doesn't sound like that much. So let's put it into another context.
Donald Trump is, according to even non-Trump sources, much wealthier than the Clintons. But from speeches alone, the Clintons have earned almost 62 times the average lifetime earnings of someone with a Master's degree.
