This American Economy

I love this American Life.  While not every episode is genius, the non genius episodes are good, and the genius ones are the most amazing radio you’ll ever listen to.

This past week they did an episode called Another Frightening Show About the Economy, which was a follow up (in some ways) to The Giant Pool of Money, which explained the sub-prime crisis through really compelling story telling.  You can listen to both of them online for free, which I highly recommend that you do.  Nothing I’ve read or heard so far during the financial mess explains it nearly so well, or is so riveting.
