Let me introduce you to one of my favorite new podcasts. Planet Money is a NPR show that is a lot like Freakanomics. It covers topics that affect our lives day to day and gives some insights into some aspect pf your finances you might not think immediately about.

In this week’s episode,  they discuss the automotive industry and how we have to pay more for cars because manufacturers have to retool their vehicles to meet both American and European markets.

Planet Money #533

The funniest part of this one was when the VW engineer (inadvertently) called Americans dummies for not always wearing their seat belts.
