Recently a bunch of podcasts and documentaries have come to my attention around the topic of ‘money:’ what is it? how does it work? where is it going?
Here I am therefore compiling these various audio and video series to share. Below is a list of the series I’ve found so far that explore both the theory of money itself as well as its’ role in societies. Please contact me to let me know if I’ve missed something.
- The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World (Niall Ferguson, 2008)
- The Illusion of Money (CBC Ideas, Feb.2016)
- From Bartering to Bitcoin (CBC Spark, Sept.2016)
- The Future of Cash, Episode 260 (Freakonomics Radio, Sept.2016)
For a more silly take on these questions, check out Philomena Cunk’s moment of wonder.
