A conversation with Death, Sex & Money and BuzzFeed News
Anna Sale, Host, Death, Sex & Money, WNYC Studios
Venessa Wong, Reporter, BuzzFeed News
«Class is complicated. So, so complicated,» a listener named Jessica wrote to WNYC Studios’ Death, Sex & Money (DSM) podcast when they asked for listener-submitted stories about class.
Death, Sex & Money and BuzzFeed News collaborated on a multimedia project called Opportunity Costs: Money and Class in America. In listening to and reading the stories, it became evident that class wasn’t just about money--it was also about childhoods, present-day status, aspirations, housing, education, culture, mental health, community and much more.
And now, we want to know: what ...does class mean to you?
Join Anna Sale, host of WNYC Studios’ Death, Sex & Money and BuzzFeed News’ Venessa Wong for a conversation about class and all that it entails. Expect lots of audience participation and engagement around questions like “What embarrasses you about your current class status?” and “What was a moment when you felt particularly aware of your class status?” We’ll provide drinks and snacks to help get the dialogue started and keep it going in a post-show happy hour.
Location: 110 The Embarcadero, Rembe Rock Auditorium, San Francisco
Time: 6:00 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program, 7:45 p.m. happy hour! (Thanks to Fort Point Beer Company for providing beers!)
