Vox and Vox Media Studios’ “Explained” Returns to Netflix with “Money, Explained”

Limited Series Premieres Today on Netflix 

Episodes Narrated by Tiffany Haddish, Bobby Cannavale, Edie Falco, Jane Lynch, and Marcia Gay Harden

Today, Netflix premiered “Money, Explained,” the new limited series from Vox and Vox Media Studios. Featuring episodes narrated by Tiffany Haddish, Bobby Cannavale, Edie Falco, Jane Lynch, and Marcia Gay Harden, “Money, Explained” explores the complicated relationship we have with money. Episodes include: “How to

Get Rich Quick,’” “Credit Cards,” “Student Loans,” “Gambling,” and “Retirement.”

“Money, Explained” puts it all out into the open: the ways your credit card might be screwing you; how student loans became a crisis; why most of us won’t be able to save enough for retirement; and how we get tricked into bad gambles and even worse scams. The series breaks down the weaknesses we all share when it comes to money, the devious ways they’re exploited, and the best strategies out there to navigate it all.

The five episode limited series marks the 7th installment of the “Explained” franchise from Vox and Vox Media Studios for Netflix.

“Money, Explained” is executive produced by Claire Gordon, Joe Posner and Ezra Klein for Vox, and Chad Mumm and Mark W. Olsen for Vox Media Studios. Marina Stadler is a Co-Executive Producer for Vox Media Studios.
