By the Book is half reality show, half self-help podcast, and one wild social experiment. Join comedian Jolenta Greenberg and her skeptical friend Kristen Meinzer as they live by the rules of a different self-help book each week to figure out which ones might actually be life changing. First up, the massive best seller, The Secret.
Jolenta is a contributor to the BBC, WNYC, and Risk! She's also a Moth story slam winner. You've probably heard her funny stories on a podcast before. Kristen is a producer with Panoply and former co-host of PRI/WNYC’s Movie Date podcast where, no surprise, her job was to be critical.
By the Book is part of the Panoply Pilot Project, where YOU help decide what gets turned into a series. Available now!
Bob Brusca of Fact & Opinion Economics talks about Janet Yellen's Congressional testimony, during which the Fed chair said a cautious approach to raising interest rates was appropriate, given the economy still faces some headwinds.
