Planet Money

“Economics for Beginners!” would easily fly as an alternative name for the Planet Money podcast. When they’re not gossiping or discussing Hollywood’s Black List, they're mainly discussing the nitty-gritty of economics. For those that wonder what inflation, charts, graphs, tax rates, and government monetary policies mean for an American citizen, Planet Money is the podcast to get answers. Hosts Amanda Aronczyk, Mary Childs, Karen Duffin, Jacob Goldstein, Sarah Gonzalez, and Kenny Malone do the most in demystifying the most complex economics concepts for the average citizen.
