Five years ago this month, the financial crisis hit its most intense moment. One giant company after another went bust or was rescued at the last minute, as the government launched a wave of bailouts.

Another momentous thing happened five years ago this week: The Planet Money podcast came into being.

Today, we replay key moments from some of our first shows, when it seemed like the entire economy could seize up at any moment. And we ask: Are we safer now than we were five years ago?

Music: Noah and the Whale's "5 Years Time." Find us: Twitter/ Facebook/Spotify/ Tumblr. Download the Planet Money iPhone App.
