Death Sex & Money with Anna Sale

Monday, December 30, 2013

Death Sex & Money is a bi-weekly podcast about the big questions and hard choices that are often left out of polite conversation.

Death Sex & Money is hosted by Anna Sale, a long-time political reporter for WNYC who has spent the last couple years on the campaign trail – the 2012 presidential contest and then New York’s 2013 mayoral race. Death Sex & Money came about from Anna’s conversations with voters. People didn’t want to talk about this candidate or that issue. They wanted to talk about what they were dealing with in their lives – deciding whether to move across the country for a job; falling in love again after divorce; choosing to have another kid after breast cancer; telling their mother their grandson had just been arrested – again.

Death Sex & Money will explore these and other stories through in-depth interviews with notable names as well as everyday people. Death, Sex & Money isn’t a self-help podcast. You won’t walk away with advice, or hear plugs for the latest how-to book. You will be able to eavesdrop on thoughtful, extended conversations about the way we live now.

The podcast is launching later in 2014. For now, we want your help shaping the show. We are collecting stories of transitions and new starts as we start the new year. Stories like Heidi Reinberg's or Guy Branum's. Listen in on their stories of transition, and add your own below.

Heidi Reinberg

Heidi Reinberg lives on Bill de Blasio's block. For now. The new mayor is moving with his family to Gracie Mansion, and she is being priced out of the Park Slope neighborhood where she's lived for seventeen years. Her landlord is selling her unit, and after several up and down years as a freelance documentary producer, money is short for a new place. 

Guy Branum

Guy Branum is a stand-up comic and writer. He was a staff writer and performer on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell on FXX and the self-anointed “Staff Homosexual” on Chelsea Lately on E!. He considers California home and recently moved back to West Hollywood from New York after the cancellation of Totally Biased. He grew up in Yuba City, an agricultural town north of Sacramento.

Brooklyn_Mom from Park Slope Brooklyn

Heidi - I really hope you find a place in Brooklyn or somewhere nearby (pockets of the Bronx are starting to sound ok - but that feels like a whole other world, I know). Good luck! We are waiting for that text/phone call about our Park Slope apt from the owner - feels like it could be any day with the prices reaching Jupiter. Folks say, "what about that fringe neighborhood, but I just cannot bring myself to move to a place that feels less safe with teens/tweens. Anna - I would love to hear stories of folks who because of the "rent/RE increases" move from one 'hood' to another within the city or out of the city. Frankly, leaving the city is tougher to think about than Death! Crazy, I know.
