You know [what] matters. Do you know why?

Why [It] Matters is a world news and economics podcast focused on answering the question less asked. Inspired in equal parts by the thorough reporting of The Economist, the immersive audio storytelling of Radiolab, and sheer amateur pluck, WIM weaves together economic data, anecdotes, famous speeches, and music by independent artists in an attempt to figure out the world, one episode at a time.
