Datei Datum Inhalt Dauer
397 2010-01-01 2010 At the start of a new year, journalistic outfits put out lots of mealy "perhaps oil prices will rise or perhaps they won't" predictions for the coming year. Instead of that, we asked our contributors to predict real events that will happen to them and the people they know in 2010. 00:57:52
398 2010-01-08 Long Shot Stories of people betting on something with very bad odds, mostly because they have no other choice. 00:58:02

Plus other stories of filling in the blank. 00:58:50
400 2010-02-12 Stories Pitched by Our Parents For our 400th show, we try something harder than anything we've ever tried in the previous 399. We take the random ideas that members of our own families have told us at weddings and family gatherings would be "perfect for the show"...and we actually try to make those ideas into stories. 01:02:02
401 2010-02-19 Parent Trap Stories about parents setting accidental traps for their children, and sometimes for themselves, including a story from WNYC's Radiolab about a chimp raised twice—once as a human child, and again as a chimp. 00:57:50
402 2010-03-12 Save the Day Stories about one person single-handedly taking charge of a situation gone wrong—including one man's mission to rescue two kids who were kidnapped by alleged murderers and taken to Mexico, and another about a professor's mission to keep the educators of a liberal arts college from extinction. 00:57:48
403 2010-03-26 NUMMI A car plant in Fremont California that might have saved the U.S. car industry. In 1984, General Motors and Toyota opened NUMMI as a joint venture. Toyota showed GM the secrets of its production system: How it made cars of much higher quality and much lower cost than GM achieved. Frank Langfitt explains why GM didn't learn the lessons—until it was too late. 01:01:35

This and other stories where we stop before getting to the other side. 00:57:45
408 2010-05-21 Island Time Unprecedented amounts of money have been pledged to Haitian relief in the last few months. American households have given over $1 billion and in March, 120 countries pledged over $9 billion(!) to rebuild. The only problem is that—historically—blanketing a country in aid and money has never really worked so well. Is there a chance this time things could be different? 00:58:18
409 2010-06-04 Held Hostage A kidnapping victim in Colombia spends his nights listening to a radio station that plays messages from the families of the kidnapped.

410 2010-06-18 Social Contract Richard Ravitch has helped fix three governmental crises, including when New York City nearly went bankrupt in 1975.

413 2010-07-30 Georgia Rambler In the 1970s a reporter named Charles Salter wrote a column for the Atlanta Journal called "Georgia Rambler."

414 2010-08-10 Right to Remain Silent Stories about people who have the right to remain silent... but choose not to exercise that right—including police officer Adrian Schoolcraft, who secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story, written by Graham Rayman, is here. 00:58:01
415 2010-09-24 Crybabies Crybabies are annoying. They whine, they complain, sometimes they ruin it for the rest of us. But being a crybaby can be a really effective tactic. We have stories of crybabies in sports, in politics, on Wall Street, on the streets of California, including a new story by David Sedaris. 00:57:47

418 2010-11-05 Toxie In January 2010, reporters from Planet Money bought a toxic asset—you know, the things that blew up wall street banks, sank the economy and brought the global financial system to a halt—one of those. And "Toxie" turned out to be an encyclopedia of the financial crisis. Here's an animation about Toxie. And here's an interactive timeline tracking its value. 00:58:11
419 2010-11-12 Petty Tyrant In Schenectady, NY, a school maintenance man named Steve Raucci works his way up the ranks for 30 years, until finally he's in charge of the maintenance department.
