The economy explained. 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.

Fun & Educational

I love this podcast! It’s a educational podcast that actually captures your attention. I have a short attention span and usually lose interest within a few minutes. But the cast makes all the subjects super fun and interesting. It’s a combination of interviews with a little dramatization. Thanks for educating us!

Quality, valuable information made entertaining

I consume many many podcasts on myriad subjects, including economics and Planet Money is one of the best at exploring complex, interesting topics and conveying them in an understandable and entertaining way.

The variety of content provides varied perspectives in varied market contexts. However, there are several episodes that tend to drift away from the economic focus of the podcast and focus more on news items/political issues - it would be nice to make sure that every episode clearly ties in the economics of the material covered

I appreciate that they label which episodes are repeats, also find the team members very likable

Informative enough to feel valuable, but casual enough that be fun

Sick of the repeats

Half of the episodes are either past episodes you republish or just things I’ve already heard on the indicator... just lazy. Really like the show but I’m so sick of the repeats.
