Consistently interesting podcast

I listen to Planet Money pretty consistently, along with the Indicator. Planet money gives you a complex but not overwhelming view of their topics. They site great sources and have interesting guests. If you enjoy learn about history, economics, and culture, listen to Planet Money

Not the same anymore

Nearly every episode up until about two years ago was excellent but since then the quality of this podcast has gone completely downhill.

The biggest issues are that they no longer put much effort into making this podcast, they goof around and giggle way too much, there's now an extremely strong liberal bias in almost every episode and lately there have been too many ads.

The goofing around and the giggling is especially irritating because they act so immature at times that it sometimes seems like this podcast is intended for children. The previous hosts were a lot more mature.
