Excellent podcasts.

I'm a teacher and I use these podcasts in my class.....your episodes on Bank Wars (Andrew Jackson--a while ago) and most recently on Ida Tarbell and Standard Oil were very useful and not too long for the average high school student to listen to.....keep 'em coming! Thank you!

I listen to about 15 different podcasts, and I think Planet Money might be my favorite out of all of them. The reporting is engaging, I really do learn a lot despite the brevity, and I love the often silly blurbs after the ads at the end. There aren’t any hosts I don’t enjoy listening to, but I...Read full review »

I don’t know much about business or economics, but I am super interested in it. This podcast is accessible and a great listen.

Honestly, just a top tier podcast. I’m a 21 year old accounting major and I have been wanting to learn more about economics but school doesn’t make it interesting. AT ALL. But who knew I’d get excited about 5 part series on oil, and governments buying large amounts of dairy to help farmers....Read full review »

Truly a fun and enthralling podcast, easy to listen to and the whole cast is enjoyable.

It’s good now try

I love this podcast!! The antitrust trilogy was so cool and I want more!! Sometimes I think that planet money could go a little deeper into the more complex subjects, but overall is a great podcast.

Great and interesting topics and very easy to grasp narration, very informative. Great cast of people doing the show, it introduces a very light and fun vibe to otherwise less interesting subjects - perfect for binge indulgence!

I think this is the podcast I've been listening to the longest. The hosts are great and the topics are interesting and thoroughly researched. Highly Recommend

As someone who is rather young, this is genuinely a great and easy to follow podcast. There’s 1-2 ads per episode. This never really bothers me though, I usually find other awesome podcasts because of these ads. But they cover very interesting and entertaining topics that are entertaining and...Read full review »

Episodes are always a good listen. I save them for when I have 20 minutes to listen straight through. The short videos from a few months ago were great too. Hope to see more
Ezerious via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/19
I love this podcast because it helps me understand an important topic I don’t care enough to invest into learning myself: economics. It really is “Economics for Dummies” as I saw someone call it on these reviews. I also love the unexpected laughs it’s given me. My boyfriend and I don’t know...Read full review »

Planet Money has opened up a whole new world for me. Over the last few years I have discovered an interest and obsession of mine, I wasn’t aware I had - the most basic principals of our economy is a way that the average Jane can understand and relate to her world. I have listened to every...Read full review »

I love this show! The themes are really interesting and fun and educational. It’s really a great listen!
AnnafromPoland via Apple Podcasts · Poland · 02/16/19
This is truly a bona fide podcast to which I’ve ever listened, and it literally makes my English listening better and even makes my oral English more proficient. Obviously this is an genuine American podcast and who that want to enhance his English skill should follow suit.

All audio is only coming through one earbud for this episode. Great content but tough to listen to when David is whispering in my ear!
5pzkya5 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/19
I have been listening to this podcast almost since it started and am an avid, avid fan. I can't tell you the number of times listening to an episode of Planet Money has come in handy both in my personal, but especially, professional life. Not only do they tell fascinating stories and make...Read full review »

Long time ago, npr was one of the best, most factual news source. Now it’s a bunch of liberal pinheads pushing their own political agenda.
Discouraged in PA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/13/19
I like the show, but you’ve got to put video episodes in a different feed. 3* only until the videos stop!
tbxtbxtbxtbxtb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/19
You guys should do a full episode on the MMA/UFC, Fyre Festival, and crime in families topics. Each could definitely be their own episode!
zgrahambo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/19
If I was stuck on a deserted island with a choice of one podcast to have. I would choose planet money. I am excited every time I see a new episode pop up in my feed.
Pyropal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/19
This was a... very bad depiction of Bitcoin as a whole. One of the biggest misinterpretations of Bitcoin is that it will be used for daily payments by everyone - false. The fact that it supports <10 transactions per second is an intentional feature, not a bug. There are scaling technologies that...Read full review »

098746Kyle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/19
Nearly every episode up until about two years ago was excellent but since then the quality of this podcast has gone completely downhill. The biggest issues are that they no longer put much effort into making this podcast, they goof around and giggle way too much, there's now an extremely strong...Read full review »

I’m a 11 year old 👦🏼 and I am a leader in my class and in my school. I thought I knew it all until I listened to this podcast I think 🤔 it is the best show ever and all those stupid bad reviews don’t look 👀 at them they are stupid this is an 😎 show

I never thought I would find economics so interesting until I found this show! The lessons learned in this show can be applied to your daily lives too.
deja_moo75 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/19
You all really need to do your homework on tax history, impacts and real world examples. Simon and Emily really just came off parrots and not rational or informed. You two were expressing bias instead of analysis. I was disappointed. You also both just spoke over Anna. It was grating and...Read full review »

This podcast is great. It teaches not just about economics, but just about anything in the world. If you’re curious about how things work, this is for you. The topics, the reporting and the reporters are simply the best.
gsmonterey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/19
Love the bite sized episodes that pack a lot of info into light hearted package for easy listening
JackQCass via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/19
This podcast features EXCELLENT story telling and top-notch editing, without a doubt...the problem is that the stories that they tell teach you absolutely nothing and are not really entertaining or even interesting. Listening to great, passionate, upbeat storytelling about how a woman at a firm...Read full review »

Among all my podcasts I subscribe to (~40), this is hands down my favorite. The topics are interesting, current, informative, well researched and presented perfectly for a broad audience. I have been listening for over 4 years now and I would highly recommend.
Pete Carney via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/19
The host, Sara Gonzalez’s casual demeanor is distracting to the stories being told.

I love the videos the are so well made and fun
cutie dig via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/22/19
I've been listening to this podcast for years and still absolutely love it! It's taught me so much about every corner of the economy, from topics that you would expect (like Brexit, the 2008 financial crisis, carbon taxes, international development, etc.) to those you might not think of yourself,...Read full review »

The election of President Hayes was a last-minute compromise where white Republicans threw blacks past the curb. This podcast episode did not specifically point out that this was the end of Reconstruction. What a terrible terrible shame that USA went backwards after the Civil War. During Black...Read full review »

Australian Chrispy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/18/19
What I love about this podcast is that it’s all about the numbers. They find interesting stories in unexpected places. They report on what story the numbers tell and often change my mind or make me want to seek more information on something that I was misinformed on.
Eder in the Golden State via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/19
I love planet money because they take something that can be really complicated and make it understandable within 15-25 minutes. I also love that they cover stuff on the not so economic side of things that are just cool. Keep it up.
DogeLover555 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/19
I’m a conservative so I knew what I was getting into by listening to an NPR podcast, but today’s episode “You asked...” was so overwhelming filled with leftist talking points that I had to unsubscribe. Planet Money has always been left leaning, and that’s fine, but today’s episode was nothing but...Read full review »

I love this show - breaks down complicated financial challenges into easy to understand concepts. I loved the state cheese episode especially!
oliedis via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/10/19
Very engaging podcast, which is no small feat given the heavy economics covered, and it does well at displaying the human element in every story. The hosts also work well off each other and the people they interview. The only things I take issue with are that the ads are usually very standard...Read full review »

This is one of few the podcasts make sure to listen to every week. It's fun, informative and surprisingly funny. It's a lighthearted look at economic current events and other interesting economic topics. Even if the topic isn't interesting this show finds a way to put an interesting twist on it....Read full review »
