From Tom Petruno at the LA Times: NPR's 'Planet Money,' live from Santa Monica

Fans of NPR's Alex Blumberg and Adam Davidson, who produced the award-winning housing-crisis explainer "The Giant Pool of Money," will want to tune in to KCRW on Sunday from 6 to 7 p.m. PDT: The two will be broadcasting their "Planet Money" show live from the Broad Stage in Santa Monica.

Following on the success of "The Giant Pool of Money" in May 2008, Blumberg and Davidson launched Planet Money in early September to blog on the nation’s economic crisis. Their timing was perfect: Planet Money began on Sept. 7 -- the day the government seized Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the first dominoes to fall in the financial-system collapse.
