This is worth a quick mention: If you're trying to make sense of our rapidly changing (and these days deteriorating) economy, then you'll want to spend some time with NPR's Planet Money. The podcast has been taking an expert look at the day-to-day breakdown of the financial system and government efforts to bail it out. Plus, it's been keeping an eye on how the fiasco potentially affects you. To stay on top of things, you can grab the podcast here: iTunes - Rss Feed. Also see the Planet Money Podcast web site here.
