The economy explained. Imagine you could call up a friend and say, "Meet me at the bar and tell me what's going on with the economy." Now imagine that's actually a fun evening.

Customer Reviews

Shocked there's no review yet

This is without question the best podcast I've discovered yet. The hosts give by far the best, most thorough and most coherent coverage of the ongoing issues leading to and caused by the current financial crisis. I really feel like I know and understand 10 times as much about what's going on, and when some story involving the latest goings on at the Fed, at AIG or anything else related to what's happening to our banking system, you can be sure that they'll cover the important details that the rest of the media glosses over. People worried about the death of investigative reporting in news papers should be paying attention to this podcast as an example of how we don't need print media for insight and relentless coverage.

Consistently informative and entertaining

When I've got a new episode on my iPod, it's the first thing I listen to. So enjoyable that I'm afraid of what will happen to it when the recession's over. If you're even slightly interested in economics and/or finance you owe it to yourself to subscribe.

Well worth listening to!

Planet Money's hosts are engaging, informative and easy to listen to. The content is great. I think this is the best financial podcast I have come across!
