Slate Money

A weekly roundup of the most important stories from the worlds of business and finance, hosted by Felix Salmon.


Slate Money: Movies: Parasite

Welcome to Slate Money Goes to the Movies, a miniseries in which Felix Salmon, Emily Peck, and a different guest each week discuss popular business-themed movies. 

Dodai Stewart of The New York Times joins Emily and Felix to discuss the stunning winner of the 2020 Best Picture Oscar, Parasite. They discuss class solidarity (or lack thereof), how the film’s themes translate to America, and why only the rich can afford luxuries like planning, trust and using all their senses.


Podcast production by Jessamine Molli.
