The cotton for the Planet Money men's T-shirt was spun into yarn in Indonesia and knit, cut and sewn into shirts in Bangladesh. Last week, we had teams of reporters and photographers in both countries — and we managed to get almost everybody on the phone at once. On today's show, we listen in on that call. Today's special bonus guest: Pietra Rivoli, the author of the book that inspired our T-shirt project. Music: Daft Punk's "Around The World" Find us: Twitter/ Facebook/Spotify/ Tumblr.
