Description
Planet Money is an American podcast and blog produced by NPR. Using "creative and entertaining" dialogue and narrative, Planet Money claims to be "The Economy Explained." Episode lengths range between 6-30 minutes and are typically stand-alone episodes. Interviewees/guests range from academic experts, business professionals, to general members of the North American public. Planet Money uses abridged narratives to tackle popular complex topics like American health care or insider trading, in order to make popular economic issues more approachable to audiences without an academic background in economics. Providing listeners with primary source material, the podcast's host contributes contextual framing and commentary. The intimate stories are used as a leading thread and the podcast uses commonplace language with entertaining plots to describe abstract or complex economic and political issues.

A great podcast for both economists and people who have no idea what that word means. Episodes are the perfect length (approx. 20-30 mins each) and the low-key, conversational style and storytelling makes them both easily digestible and enjoyable. Beyond the strong presentation, topics are (most importantly) also interesting, well-researched/edited, and broad spectrum.

You need to turn your volume up. I had the same issue, but since I adjusted my volume higher, the $$$ is nonstop.
