To call out, cool off, and end the drama he and Jim Cramer had brewing last week, Jon Stewart devoted the entirety of Thursday’s episode of The Daily Show to an interview with him. I didn’t realize that it had actually been edited down and happened across the extended & uncensored version over the weekend. It is far better and a must watch.

Note: As the language is uncensored, I won’t directly embed the videos.

A wonderfully arranged 11 minute animation giving an even broader overview of the credit crisis than the FRONTLINE documentary.

Note: He got slammed with a $6K hosting bill over the weekend due to it’s popularity, so buy a shirt to help him pay the bills.

Update: Embedded the entire video from Vimeo instead of the two-parter from YouTube, for your viewing pleasure.

Excellent overview of how and why the financial meltdown evolved and what was done to try to keep in in check. Very well written and directed as well.
