The story about how the European Debt crisis came to be, starting with the utopian dream that was the euro.

If you're like us, when the words European Debt Crisis pop up in the news these days you feel a little worried, and a little like taking a nap. Turns out, there's a story behind this story. One that's filled with guilt, and drama, and betrayal, and 100-year-old dreams come true. Alex Blumberg guest-hosts as Planet Money brings you the story of the Euro as you've never heard it. This American Life: Continental Breakup airs Thursday, January 26 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD 91.5-2.
