Podcast archived: Get smart about the financial crisis

I am very proud of last night's episode of "The Best of What Tami Said" and I hope you will take time to listen to it. I was joined by Pamela Kemp, Pamela Kemp of Pam's Coffee Conversation, who has been studying the economy as a layperson for five years and covering the current turmoil on her blog, and Alan Silberberg, CEO of You2gov, a political social networking site that helps citizens to become more powerful, more informed, and more able to influence government decisions that affect them.

We talked about the origins of today's financial crisis, but most importantly we talked about the importance of citizens staying informed and seeking out the facts about our country's financial health and our individual financial health.

I just listened to the podcast. Thank you so much Tami. I was in the dark on the pragmatics behind this country's recession. Your guests provided excellent analysis and suggestions for further research. So far, this has been the best podcast to date, and you have some real winners. I think you have one of the best political podcasts out there because you provide concrete hands-on knowledge that listeners can apply right now.

Keep up the good work!
