I am really enjoying some of the episodes of the NPR Planet Money podcast lately. It is a twice a week podcast with just the right length easily discussing some economic topics.
Imagine you could call up a friend and say, “Meet me at the bar and tell me what’s going on with the economy.” Now imagine that’s actually a fun evening. That’s what we’re going for at Planet Money.
Here are a few very interesting episodes:
- The Cost Of Crossing - “Today on the show, we meet a businessman and a client in the evolving industry of human smuggling.”
- The Anatomy Of A Scam - Analyzing what’s behind the “Work from home. Make thousands of dollars a week. Call this number!” messages.
- Auditing ISIS - Examining the budget of ISIS
