Death, Sex & Money LIVE

with Anna Sale and Charlie Shrem
PAST EVENT: Sat, Aug 12, 2017

Recently named New York Magazine‘s number one podcast, Death, Sex & Money is all about the big questions and hard choices that are often left out of polite conversation. In this live, on-stage interview, host Anna Sale sits down with 27-year-old Charlie Shrem, once known as the “Bitcoin Millionaire” to talk about how he went from Internet wunderkind to prison inmate. After spending two years behind bars for aiding and abetting illegal Silk Road transactions, Shrem is now out of jail and back in the Bitcoin business. Hear how he thinks about money now, and how his dramatic rise and fall changed his relationships and approach to living his life.

The interview is brought to you by our current exhibition, GENERATION WEALTH by Lauren Greenfield.
