Podcast You’ll Love: ‘Planet Money’ is the economy explained

After a long “winter” of discontent, the economy is back. Growth after the Great Recession is modest, yes, but it is thankfully trending upward.

So what’s going to happen next? What are the trends, pitfalls and growth spikes to come? Where do you find this information in an entertaining, informative package?

NPR’s “Planet Money” says it’s “the economy explained.” Forget sleep-inducing panel discussions of monetary policy or other arcane subjects. “Planet Money” talks about complicated subjects such as health care or insider trading in an accessible way.

“Planet Money” has also explored commerce in unusual ways, such as making a T-shirt and following it in a journey from resource production to manufacturing. The show also bought 100 barrels of crude oil and followed it all the way into a gas pump.

Speaking of money, there’s plenty of tech out there that isn’t worth it. Find out 5 tech things that are a big waste of money.

Other recent podcasts have looked at bank disaster scenarios, the price of oil, fake product reviews and when CEO pay exploded.

“Planet Money” also provides regular reports for “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered” and occasional episodes of “This American Life.”
