So Money - Episode 1571

Susie Banikarim

Journalist and Co-Host of In Retrospect

Is there a cultural moment from your past that looks different in retrospect? Maybe it’s a scandalous tabloid story seared into your teenage brain or a political punchline that just feels wrong now. Guest Susie Banikarim is an Emmy-winning journalist and co-host of the new podcast In Retrospect where she and New York Times editor Jessica Bennett revisit a pop culture moment from the 80s and 90s that shaped them — to try to understand what it taught us about the world, and a woman’s place in it. Susie and Farnoosh talk about the influence of soap operas, the media’s portrayal of Monica Lewinsky, and the business of television and how it shapes the cultural discourse.
