All this week, All Things Considered and Morning Edition has aired stories about the global journey a T-shirt makes from seed to finished product. Over the months NPR's Planet Money team spent reporting the series, they tackled questions about trade, work and clothes play in the global economy. There's a whole lot more about a simple T-shirt's journey from cotton to completion here.

As co-host of Planet Money, Alex Blumberg is making a t-shirt (well, about one thousand of them) – and bringing listeners on the complicated global odyssey behind the production of the basic cotton tee.
