For World News, Nightline, and the ABC News Shuffle Podcast, President Obama’s chair of his Council of Economic Advisers — Dr. Christina Romer — breaks down the new plan to get "toxic assets’ (or "legacy loans") off the books of banks.

Listen on iTunes or HERE.

And to reiterate — the idea to explain the plan in a hypothetical with "Bob the Banker" and "Ivan the Investor" was my idea, not hers, and she was a good sport about it.  I just thought that for a TV audience, with a graphic, it might make what’s a complex plan seem a bit more comprehendible.

The ABC News Shuffle Podcast is produced by Huma Khan.
