Episode Notes

Slate Money is obsessed with Succession, HBO’s wonderful drama about the lives of the superrich Roy family. So, every Monday we’ll be discussing the previous night’s episode with spoiler-filled glee. To kick us off after a long wait for season 3, Felix Salmon and Emily Peck are joined by The New Yorker’s Rebecca Mead to talk about her piece, “The Real C.E.O of ‘Succession,’ ” how sorry we should feel for the Roy “children,” and the mic drop ending of season 2.

Podcast production by Cheyna Roth.
