"Class is complicated. So, so complicated," a listener named Jessica wrote to WNYC Studios’ "Death, Sex & Money" (DSM) podcast when they asked for listener-submitted stories about class.

Death, Sex & Money and BuzzFeed News collaborated on a multimedia project called Opportunity Costs: Money and Class in America. In listening to and reading the stories, it became evident that class wasn’t just about money—it was also about childhoods, present-day status, aspirations, housing, education, culture, mental health, community and much more.

And now, we want to know: What does class mean to you?

Join DSM host Anna Sale and BuzzFeed News’ Venessa Wong for a conversation about class and all that it entails. Expect lots of audience participation and engagement around questions like “What embarrases you about your current class status?” and “What was a moment when you felt particularly aware of your class status?” We’ll provide drinks and snacks to help get the dialogue started and keep it going in a post-show happy hour.
