13 mins | Jan 21, 2022

Today's episode from 21st January 2022. First this Friday: He's been described as the Elon Musk of money and now part of his firm has just been sold off for a nine-figure amount. We profile the man sitting on this multi-billion dollar throne, Ken Griffin. We end the week with one of work-from-home’s forbidden pleasures… the Friday brunch. What used to be exclusively a weekend activity may now have become the restaurant industry’s saving grace. Billionaire Kenneth Cordele Griffin, mostly known for running hedge fund Citadel, is one of the world’s wealthiest people. For The Financial Times, Robin Wigglesworth delves into the life behind the wealth and phenomenal success of the “boy wonder” of the hedge fund industry. As the restaurant industry continues to struggle in the pandemic, a surprising ally has emerged. For The Wall Street Journal, Jason Diamond reveals that the weekend brunch crowd are showing up during the weekday to battle the fatigue of working from home. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
