  1. If I remember correctly the ‘Giant Pool of Money’ program from This American Life/Planet Money was also outstanding.

    One of the things I like about public radio is that they are perfectly willing to delve into very complicated topics for extended lengths of time that give them the ability to relate complicated concepts in a way that is understandable.

    Meanwhile quality reporting from the MSM involves pundits and ‘experts’ shouting at each other for ten minutes while the host (sometimes playing ‘expert’) uses some gee-whiz gadget to display completely irrelevant, confusing and/or misleading (at best) visuals.

  2. This American Life is thebest radio show out their. I also sync Planet Money to my iPod.
