  • Insightful economics podcast

    I have listened to Planet Money for years, even while I lived abroad in Taiwan. The crew help us understand the nuances of various economic situations. I have enjoyed the different topics ranging from the historical to the modern, and although I am a computational biochemist by training, I have gained a greater appreciation for this subject area.
