Understanding the Financial Crisis in Everyday Language

We have all heard about the banking crisis and Toxic Assets, but what is it really all about?  This affects everyone and you should be informed - and the regular media doesn't seem inclined to be as clear as they could be.  

This American Life is a radio show on National Public Radio, they have put together a 59 minute program that explains the whole thing in easy to understand language.  I highly recommend listening to the show.


Also, you can get a transcript or download the podcast at This American Life.
