Imagine you could call up a friend and say, "Meet me at the bar and tell me what's going on with the economy." Now imagine that's actually a fun evening. That's what we're going for at Planet Money.

Planet Money tries really hard every episode to find creative, entertaining ways to make sense of the big, complicated forces that move our economy. For example, it's journalists made a t-shirt and traced the supply chain around the world from cotton field to factory; bought 100 barrels of crude oil and followed it from ground to gas tank; launched a satellite; and built an adorable algorithmic trading Twitter bot.

Powered by NPR, Planet Money launched in 2008 during the financial crisis and, since then, it has won many awards including a Peabody and an Edward R. Murrow Award in 2017 for our investigation into Wells Fargo's retaliation against whistle-blowers.

In 2017, The Indicator, a shorter, more frequent podcast was released that takes a number or a term from the news and finds context and big ideas behind it.

You can also hear Planet Money stories on Morning Edition, All Things Considered.

Planet Money and The Indicator are co-hosted by: Ailsa Chang, Cardiff Garcia, Jacob Goldstein, Noel King, Kenny Malone, Robert Smith, and Stacey Vanek Smith.
