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.

Economics for Dummies

Thanks for making this podcast. Coincidentally I went to the podcast listing looking specifically for a show that can help me understand the current financial crisis (me being largely clueless about these matters) and there was this show, recently launched. The host is good at coaxing clear, plain-spoken explanations out of his guests on rather complex, global issues. I hope you consider making the shows longer. At 20 minutes they're easily digestable, but I'd happily continue listening.

Great, but...

The Global Pool of Money episode of This American Life forever changed my understanding of the US and global economies. This podcast continues that great easy-to-understand viewpoint, demystifying the jargon and confusion previously associated with economics. Planet Money keeps me so well informed that my friends and family come to me with questions on the economic crisis. How to get five stars? Get rid of Laura Conoway. She's not a credible or interesting addition to the show. Her comments and remarks are not only unprofessional and ignorant at times, but also annoying and ill-informed.

Keep up the good work

The Global Economy show on This American Life was one of the absolute best I've yet heard in the 10 years I've been listening. Your first two podcasts here promise much much more of the same. Please and Thank You.
