THIS AMERICAN LIFE
I’ve been a long-time listener to the radio program This American Life, hosted by Ira Glass. The one-hour show is found on many NPR stations typically on Saturday (check your local listings).
Usually, I listen to the show over the weekend to escape from the daily rigors of life or play it back on my iPod while I exercise. Each show focuses on an interesting topic and has various stories that speak to that topic. Lately though, I’ve also been able to gain a unique education just by listening to this show and I think you’ll agree that these two episodes represent some of the best explanations out there for how we got into our current financial mess as a country.
