The Giant Pool of Money

This American Life

One of the highlights of my week is seeing a new episode of “This American Life” pop into my podcasts folder in iTunes. For those of you not familiar with the show, it is a one hour radio program produced by Chicago Public Radio and hosted by Ira Glass.

This weeks show “The Giant Pool of Money” should hold special interest for readers of this blog. It is a wonderful explanation of the housing crisis, going step by step how it developed, and who were the players, from the borrowers to the ultimates purchasers of the mortgages.
