It feels like twice a week here at Planet Money. The story is over…all the unsolved problems are tied…all the stones are turned inside out.The T’s are crossed and the I’s are dotted.And like a curiosity hangover It’s a thing. Can we find something interesting again?
Luckily there is an easy solution. Planet Money mailbox. We look forward to hearing from our curious listeners. Once in a blue moon, we will send reporters around the world to find answers to your important questions.
Today we bring you four stories inspired by listener emails. We will answer questions such as “Why are goldfish so cheap?” And “Did you know there’s a shadowy barter economy growing around Ben & Jerry’s?” I will give it to you. We know it’s not far from Vermont to Delaware, but take a break and come ride with us – it’s time to mail!
music: “West green road” “funeral march” “Spanish trick” “science of disease,” When “Goodbye“
