Best podcast ever
This show actually changed my life and the way I look at the world
I once heard Planet Money described as the “talking economics over a beer” podcast and that holds true. I tend to get overwhelmed with economic or financial talk (especially right now) but the Planet Money team always manages to break things down enough that I can wrap my brain around it and feel less in over my head. Thank you!
Not sure what or who is happening but this podcast lost who they were. Was about economics and money, now about politics. Go back to the good old times with the great stories.
