Bad Bank

Hosted by

Alex Blumberg and NPR’s Adam Davidson team up once again to talk economy: specifically, why the working men and women of America have given hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars to some of the largest and richest banks in the world. And why it's probably not enough. Plus, a man in Kansas City goes on a toxic asset road trip, and two guys from New Jersey with what just might be a solution to the whole problem. You can get daily updates about the financial crisis on their Planet Money podcast and blog.


KCRW and NPR present PLANET MONEY LIVE on APRIL 19th; TICKETS ON SALE MARCH 10 (Details next week.)
