Slate Money Goes to the Movies: 9 to 5

Louise Roug stops by to talk about the 1980 workplace comedy.


Episode Notes

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

This week, Felix and Anna are joined by Louise Roug, international executive editor at HuffPost, to talk about the hit 1980 comedy 9 to 5. They discuss how the film’s original, darker tone was abandoned; why its themes are, sadly, still so relevant today; and, of course, the wonderful Dolly Parton.


Podcast production by Jessamine Molli.
