Crisis and Response: An FDIC History, 2008–2013 reviews the experience of the FDIC during a period in which the agency was confronted with two interconnected and overlapping crises—first, the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009, and second, a banking crisis that began in 2008 and continued until 2013. The history examines the FDIC’s response, contributes to an understanding of what occurred, and shares lessons from the agency’s experience.
While the FDIC referred to the audio summaries as a podcast, they provided no means of listening to the seven audio stories via podcast applications or subscribing to the podcast.
While we know some of our listeners listen to our podcast, The Bank Account, via the website at BankBCLP.com, most, like ourselves, prefer to listen to podcasts via our phones, often while commuting or exercising. (If you’re not commuting or exercising while listening… or perhaps if you’re exercising very lightly… the FDIC has also published transcripts of each episode.)
The means of using this feed will depend in part on your podcast app of choice. Note seven of the FDIC’s episodes have already been released and are included in the feed. Depending on your app and settings, you may need to take additional steps to download all seven episodes to your app.
