This American Life: Another Frightening Show About the Economy

365: Another Frightening Show About the Economy (mp3; right click, save as).

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 on the Planet Money blog.

How Lehman Brothers and AIG went under, in plain language. Worth your hour.

The guys behind these two shows have so much material, they’re doing daily podcasts.
