This was supposed to be a very exciting week for Planet Money: The week the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission came out with the single, definitive story, explaining the financial crisis once and for all.

That didn't happen.

Instead, the commission fractured along partisan lines, and we got three separate stories. (You can read them for yourself here.)

On today's podcast, we talk to commissioners from both sides, and we find that they agree on an awful lot. But in the end, they can't agree on the moral of the story. And that winds up being a big difference.
