If you’re at all curious about what the heck’s going on in the roiling global economy, I heartily recommend the following episode of This American Life:

#365: Another Frightening Show About the Economy

Alex Blumberg and NPR’s Adam Davidson — the two guys who reported our Giant Pool of Money episode — are back, in collaboration with the Planet Money podcast.
