I listen to Planet Money pretty consistently, along with the Indicator. Planet money gives you a complex but not overwhelming view of their topics. They site great sources and have interesting guests. If you enjoy learn about history, economics, and culture, listen to Planet Money

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 »

This episode was incredibly interesting!

Love the episodes and the variety of topics, even though they all revolve around money, business and finances

I recommend this podcast to everyone I know. It’s super interesting and told in such an engaging way. I never thought I’d be interested in economics, but have gotten into it thanks to this podcast.

Planet Money is one of my top podcasts, in a fun and engaging way they take various micro and macro economic issues and create incredibly entertaining shows. Whether your an econ nerd or someone who never follows anything with numbers this is a great podcast!

I oscillate between many different types of podcasts. Some are appealing because of the content, others because of the on-air talent. To date, I haven’t found one that is so consistently exceptional in both categories other than Planet Money. It is by far my favorite. The varied topics, the...Read full review »

This podcast is consistently fun, informative, and thought-provoking. Would recommend!

I love these stories. They always have an interesting take and good historical context for the well picked stories

Can you please change way the person who rads the ads reads the ads? It’s really annoying
AryaHorseface via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
There’s something about Sally Helm’s voice that just sounds like nails on a chalkboard. It’s such an awesome show, but episodes featuring her are a tough listen. Like a theatrical reading of a Planet Money episode as a children’s story.

This show along with the Indicator from NPR are my favorite economic podcast as it talks about everything about economy, including historic facts. It is a pro-business podcast that stays away from populist politics.
Brucegmann via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
Economics lectures all with a fun twist. Teaches you that the source of everything that happens in the world is tied to money. I’ve learned so much!!!
judithjoy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/19
I’m disgusted by the treatment of Pinochet’s dictatorship and the economic postulates of the Chicago boys in the corresponding two episodes. A complete lack of proportion in your implicit dismissal of some of the most horrendous human rights abuses of the previous century. Maybe you could’ve sent...Read full review »

This is my absolute favorite podcast. I now listen to planet money instead of listening to the news. I appreciate the factual information and non-Pardison reporting. The stories are great and always interesting.

Great service to those of us who don’t always understand what is going on.

I love planet money and have been listening for 4 years. It has caused me to do economics major
Joshua Yang Justin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/02/19
I love this podcast! Somehow every topic they cover is so interesting! My boyfriend and I love catching up on road trips. And to everyone complaining about the episode issues ya’ll need to chill lol.

The NPR podcast snaffu continues for this podcast. I’m unable to subscribe and when I try to manually download individual episodes are placed in the Indicator podcast folder. Please fix the podcast downloading situation!
Jpkgju via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/19
It was very good when it was about economics. Like all NPR reporting it's become a tool for presenting their biased agenda. I was a listener from the 1st episode but have now unsubscribed.
motorrad245 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/19
Concise, informative, balanced, entertaining. Provides easy access to sometimes complex, almost always important, economic effects. The world is made better by every new episode! (no really.)
Captain Moderate via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/29/19
The shows are always well researched, entertainingg and educational.
McDonna via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/19
Cannot get enough. Always fascinating, always chock full of interesting details. Thank you !
mmxtreme via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/26/19
Used to be okay. Last couple episodes are so obviously one-sidedly political I’m unsubscribing.
Stevieze via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/25/19
I love how the staff digs into topics to describe the economic logic. The podcasts are not very long, are fun to listen to, and I’m hooked!
Oakey San via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/19
The propaganda has just gotten to be too much or maybe perhaps I’ve just become more sensitive to it. Either way after years of listening I won’t be any longer.
Follow the wives via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/23/19
Don’t try to make me listen to a half hour of Russian Collusion BS after the Mueller Report and expect me to stay subscribed. I’m here to learn about finance, not liberal conspiracies. I tried to give NPR a chance, they themselves showed me just how stupid that was
Delancey517 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/23/19
Error still exists with NPR podcasts. Planet Money is still getting confused with Up First. So frustrating! Please fix it.
PurrlandEm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/22/19
I do not subscribe to this and continue to get episodes pushed to my library. 36 episodes to be exact. Please fix this problem!!!!!
Chayes25 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/22/19
Thank you planet money for making my commute better every day!
karpikpl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/19
They keep reversing themselves in my app 🤷‍♀️ I like both the shows and the original mess up actually introduced me to planet money which I wouldn’t have thought I would love! But can you fix it all the way please plant money keeps disappearing and showing up as up first 😆🤦🏼‍♀️
Cinderzzella via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/19
I do not subscribe to this podcast yet for some reason there are 20 episodes downloaded onto my phone every morning. Please fix this
egauthier415 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/19
Hope the folks at NPR will get the podcast/server issue fixed so that this show is available again soon.
nassaulinda via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/16/19
Folks, since the podcast server failure, Planet Money cannot be subscribed to...it fails and disappears. Please look into the app software itself as well as the podcast software... I cannot unsubscribe or subscribe like other NPR apps...
Choate the Dog via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/15/19
Why can’t I resubscribe to Planet Money after NPR’s podcast screwup?! Not only can I not resubscribe to Planet Money many days after the tech staff screwed up all the NPR podcast feeds, but I had 300 episodes of The Indicator pushed to my iPhone where I have precious little memory available that...Read full review »

Great, great, great podcast! The content is ever-changing, and never boring. Hosts are great. You never know what’s next
alejandroswetsuit via Apple Podcasts · Mexico · 05/14/19
It would be very helpful if there was an archive feed that posted all the episodes in chronological order, so people who have listened to older episodes won't have them show up again, and people who like to listen to episodes in chronological order (like me) can do so. The NPR Politics podcast is...Read full review »

I am deleting over 100 unwanted podcasts daily. I guess I’m going to have to unsubscribe to all npr podcasts
Joeldjjd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/19
Planet Money was the first NPR podcast that I started listening to a couple years ago. It’s a great one and it makes my day more interesting. Keep up the great reporting!
Leekath via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/19
Planet Money never misses a beat. Excited every time a new episode comes out. Sad every time it’s a rerun
poolejosh1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/19
The topics they cover are so interesting! As a financial nut, I love hearing about stories that impact our economy from all of the country/world. They discuss the topics in a fun and engaging way and truly know their stuff. Would highly recommend for anyone who is looking to learn new topics in...Read full review »

To be fair, I'm also having issues with Planet Money showing up as up first album cover but I don’t care. When the problem is fixed, that’ll be great but I only got hooked onto this podcast because of an issue they had so I’m happy to say that is was a pleasant error.

During your recent system issue; Planet Money loaded in error. While I waited for the return of my fav podcasts I listened to this to kill time. I am hooked! Great topics and just the right length. I’m working my way through the catalogue and loving it!
Jacush via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/07/19
I have never subscribed to this show (NPR’s Up First is what I want to listen to), but as NPR hosts have explained, there was a giant mixup when they moved to a new podcast service. NPR apologized and vowed to not let it happen again. It then happened again. There are dozens of Planet Money...Read full review »

I love npr. I always listen. Some times I check out new podcast. So I just thought it was something i put ion my list to give a listen.
