Join Alex Blumberg from NPR's Planet Money's to talk about how he decided to become a t-shirt manufacturer and then tell brilliant multimedia stories about how it is done in Planet Money Makes a T-Shirt.

Alex is a contributing editor for NPR's Planet Money, a producer for This American Life, and served as the executive producer of the television version of This American Life which aired on Showtime.
