On today's podcast, we take a page from radio newscaster Paul Harvey and tell you "the rest of the story."

We look back at the podcasts we've done in 2011 and tell you what we got right, what we got wrong and how everything turned out in Wisconsin and Iceland. Plus, we try to to figure out why that Rihanna song that cost so much money, bombed on the radio.

In case you missed them, here are the original podcasts featured in today's show:


How Many Jobs Has Scott Walker Created?

Manufacturing The Song Of The Summer

A New Mom, Bjork's Dad And The President Of Iceland

Is This Man A Snuggie?
