It’s okay to talk about money. At least it is on this show. SuChin Pak searches for answers about why money is so universally thrilling, confusing, powerful, and stressful through personal stories with people that inspire us to think big, and think together, about money— no matter how much, or how little, you have. Created by Umpqua Bank and produced in collaboration with Slate Group Studios, Open Account takes an unconventionally honest approach to talking about money, and proves that whatever financial struggles we have, we’re not alone.
For most people, money is impossible to escape. But Megan Jasper is not ‘most people.’ She’s the CEO of SubPop Records - the iconic music label behind Nirvana and The Shins - and one of those rare people who put her dreams before dollars.
