The Planet Money Podcast is, byte for byte, the most informative economics podcast you'll find. They cover a wide range of topics with easy-to-understand examples, and when they veer into esoterica like debt-to-GDP ratios they keep the examples simple enough to be followed by a layperson.
Years ago, inspired by The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy, they decided to follow the production of their own branded t-shirt, from cotton seed to final sale.
It wouldn't surprise me if they decided to continue with the project to see what happens to t-shirts after the first world is done with them.
The logo upon which the brain trust at Planet Money has settled is a squirrel holding a martini glass. It's a brilliant pun on <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_spirits_%28Keynes%29>Keynes’ Animal Spirits</A>,and since I'm a huge fan who's got a more-or-less-turnkey process by which 3D-printed squirrels can be cranked out, I believe I owe them an homage.
