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

We look back at the stories we've done in 2012 and tell you what we got right, what we got wrong and how everything turned out in Belize. Plus, we try to to figure out whether that Facebook ad did anything to help Pizza Delicious.

Planet Money's Fake Presidential Candidate
What Can We Do With Our Shell Companies?
Why It's Illegal To Braid Hair Without A License
