Reading Listening Assignment

John Rogers at Kung-Fu Monkey has a post up containing links to two fantastic episodes of NPR's This American Life that explain in detail, yet complete clarity, everything about the current financial meltdown.

355: The Giant Pool of Money

365: Another Frightening Show About the Economy

I've only heard part of the second one, which I sat in my car for twenty minutes to finish, and I meant to go back and listen to both whole episodes and then blog it up, but this being a deadline week and all, I completely forgot.

Anyway, as Rogers puts it, it's your duty as a responsible and informed citizen to understand what the fuck is going on. (Unless you are a Republican, in which case you can go over to and continue to dissolve what's left of your atrophied brain.
