    I really really used to look forward to new Planet Money episodes, but there has been a noticeable change to the program’s direction. I want to hear Planet Money content. I don’t want Planet Money to be used as a vessel to prop up struggling podcasts. Please reconsider the new direction and let go of what’s not working.

    I am usually terrified/uncomfortable/nauseous to talk about money, but a spoonful of Planet Money makes the inflation go down in the most delightful way. That’s the power of great storytelling. Love their TikTok!
