Podcast cover: Death, Sex & Money

Death, Sex & Money

Death, Sex & Money, a podcast initiated at WNYC Studios then acquired by Slate, explores topics that are often on our minds but require more discussion. Established in a podcast network that boasts acclaimed shows like Radiolab and On the Media, the series, created and hosted by Anna Sale since 2014, delves into both well-known figures like Jane Fonda, Bill Withers, and Sonia Sotomayor, as well as lesser-known individuals. The podcast engages in candid conversations addressing universal life experiences that can induce feelings of isolation, covering intimate subjects such as infidelity, masculinity, estrangement, and encounters with mortality.

San Francisco mayor London Breed grew up learning again and again about the dangers of drugs and addiction. She lived in public housing in the city in the 1980’s and saw friends and family members in her community get hooked, get sick, and sometimes pass away. Fast forward to now, and San Francisco is seeing sky-high overdose numbers (though they’re down a bit from last year), and the city has earned a reputation for being in disarray. Mayor London Breed faces a tough reelection campaign this fall, and this week on the show, she talks about the many different measures she and her administration are taking to address San Francisco’s problems, and she shares some of the important life experiences that have informed her approach.
