The Economy, Explained

“What’s delightful about the show is how un-stuffy it feels.” – NPR

NPR’s award-winning economic explanation team Planet Money presents its popular radio show live for the first time in Santa Barbara. Hosted by correspondents David Kestenbaum and Alex Blumberg (producer of This American Life), Planet Money keeps its hand on the pulse of the economy, in an economic climate that changes minute by minute. Whether they are discussing the unemployment rate or the cost to produce a hit pop song, the team is known for their unique ability to explain even the most complex economic issues in a way that is entertaining and comprehensive to even the most diverse listening audience.
