Slate Money

Anna’s Farewell Episode

Slate Money talks Texas power, Citibank, and your questions for Anna Szymanski.


Episode Notes

It’s Anna Szymanski’s final (regular) episode as a host of Slate Money. So, in true Anna fashion, she, Felix Salmon and Emily Peck get wonky on the topics of the Texas power grid and Citibank’s $500 million error. Plus, Anna answers your questions for her!

Don’t worry, there is more Anna coming in our Slate Money Goes to the Movies miniseries! Next up on Feb. 23: Michael Clayton.

In the Slate Plus segment: Anna gives her biggest contrarian take–why she likes Tom Brady.
