VIDEO: What’s In Your Wallet, Los Angeles?

Tess Vigeland Jan 7, 2011

A couple of years back the Wall Street Journal had this great blog feature called “What’s In Your Wallet.” No relation to the Capital One ad slogan.

They went around asking regular and famous Joes and Janes to open up their wallets and tell stories about what’s in them. The Journal discontinued the blog, and the wallet feature. So we are reincarnating it as a regular element on our show and website.

This week we stepped outside our studio and headed to the Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles to find out What’s in Your Wallet?

And if you want to find out what’s in my wallet, take a look here.
