As someone who is not too hot with understanding fiduciary theory beyond making change and how to use a credit card, most news about national and state budgets, budget cuts, mortgage crises, TOUGH ECONOMIC TIMES, goes straight over my head and glazed over eyes. It's hard, damn it!
But what makes it easier is when reporters like Arai Buendia of Youth Radio put a human face to a budget crisis. These reporters shrink down the power of billions to a couple hundred dollars and let us know how these decisions are affecting our neighbors and might affect ourselves.
Hey! The State of the Union Address is on tonight (Wednesday the 27)! The President is going to be talking a lot about the national budget so watch it and try really hard to pay attention because it will affect you.
Also: podcast music is by Thunderheist and Holy F*ck, intro and outro respectively. As usual, it was found at the Free Music Archive. Thank you so much!
