Fill-in host Jeremy Hobson and Money senior producer Paddy Hirsch dip into the mail bag. Listeners had a lot to say about our interview with Olympic high jumper Jamie Nieto, namely that he sounded a bit… whiny. Linnea Linton of Arden North Carolina said he could do with a good dose of gratitude and humility.

There was also a lot of mail regarding our discussion about credit reports with Richard Cordray, director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Many listners pointed out that FreeCreditReports.com does not give free credit reports. Take a listen to the audio above to get the real facts about free credit reports!
