Check This Out: "Continental Breakup"

What: "This American Life" podcast

Episode: No. 455, "Continental Breakup," originally aired on Jan. 20.

Recommended by: Kurt Batdorf, Snohomish County Business Journal editor

The pitch: In this podcast, This American Life gives their partners at NPR's Planet Money an entire hour to explain how Greece's slow-motion sovereign debt crisis threatens Greece, Europe, the Euro and, ultimately, the world's economy.

This American Life host Ira Glass asks guest host Alex Blumberg whether we should really care about the current European debt crisis. The answer: yes, we should, and we should WANT to care too, because this story — and it's actually the story of the Euro itself — is very surprising and dramatic.

Download the podcast and set aside an hour of compelling radio reporting.
