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.
