I’ve posted before that I am a fan of Ira Glass’ “This American Life” heard on public radio. Last week, in collaboration with Planet Money, TAL aired “Bad Bank“. In this episode, they offer another spin on the current banking crisis, helping to bring it to a level that’s easy to understand. Take a listen, and let me know if you agree. (The show’s topics vary week to week, so I can’t say whether you’ll continue to listen to other airings. This one is worth it, though.)

I enjoy the public radio show This American Life, hosted by Ira Glass, and listen to the podcast, but having fallen a bit behind, I just heard the May 9th show, titled “The Giant Pool of Money.”

It offers yet one more view on the subprime mess, this story centers around a lot of investment money looking for a home. The episode is no longer available as a podcast, but may still be streamed on line. It’s worth listening to. (And I will add it to my list of subprime links page.)
