Another Frightening Show About the Economy is a second in an impromptu series on the economy by the NPR show, This American Life (TAL). This is episode # 365, which aired October 3rd. Not as good as the first (Giant Pool of Money), but still elucidative.
TAL explains the premise:
Alex Blumberg and NPR's Adam Davidson—the two guys who reported our Giant Pool of Money episode—are back, in collaboration with the Planet Money podcast. They'll explain what happened this week, including what regulators could've done to prevent this financial crisis from happening in the first place. You can learn more about the daily ins and outs and join the discussion on the Planet Money blog.They break it down pretty well. Stay tuned for the third part which aired Friday, Oct. 10th when it becomes available online.
