Making the very serious, very entertaining

I love podcasts for helping to make independent sense of what is going on in the world. This one deals with stuff that really needs to be on everyone's radar, but understandably given how heavy the subject matter is, many just prefer not to know. There's no excuse now -- Crazy Town not only makes this entertaining and accessible, but it leaves you with a sense that there really is a great deal of opportunity in crisis.
