Economy: Find out the latest

planet_money_animatedNPR’s PLANET MONEY: This is a cool NPR podcast that’s on daily and serves up a solid explanation of the daily economic news and what it means to you. I like it because not all of their editors and writers are experts and so if you don’t know what the TED spread is or that a swap is not a swap meet, it’s OK. They do a great job getting experts to explain it. Particularly fun: Economist House Calls — where an economist evaluates a caller’s financial circumstance. (WARNING: Given the nature of the news, it can be kind of a downer when you’re in a job funky mood.)
