Understand the US Banking System in Just 40-Minutes

Understand the US Banking System in Just 40 Minutes

A lot has gone down in the last year or so, and all of the overlapping events have caused our heads to spin. Too often, these events are talked about in ways that are over most of our heads, making it all too easy to ignore the current crisis. But understanding key details is essential to avoiding a sense of helplessness, and Alex Blumberg from This American Life and NPR’s Adam Davidson have pulled through with an excellent 40-minute podcast that explains the topic of so many headlines — the US banking system.

In the time it takes to whip up dinner, the two experts break down everything from banking basics to why the government is giving tax dollars to big banks. If you've had difficulty grasping all of the moving pieces in banking news, this podcast is worth a listen. You can download it here.

You can download the almost daily podcasts from Planet Money and it makes dealing w/ the daily news so much easier. This is probably one of the best podcasts ever. It is soooo much better than Marketplace from NPR.

I listened to this on Sunday while I was making dinner! I think it should be required listening for all Americans.
