Absolutely the best financial podcast around.
This gives you all three Marketplace podcasts in one subscription. Every morning, in Marketplace Morning Report, during the week you'll get a 10-15 minute quick synopsis with around 4-6 little stories about what's going on around the world and what to look for that day. Marketplace is the original and 1/2 hour show that has more in-depth information than the Morning Report, along with giving you numbers on how the stocks did that day. With Marketplace Money, once a week, you get a more feature-oriented podcast. Except for important news, the content virtually never overlaps.
3 Very Solid Podcasts in One
All 3 Marketplace Podcasts I listen to, in an even more convenient package. Nothing is perfect, but these podcasts each come close! Marketplace -- Sometimes too focused on the daily numbers for me, but great info and commentary Marketplace Money -- Sometimes a bit too glum, but superb personal finance info Marketplace Morning Report -- Short, sweet, and to the point
Sound, sane and sensible (unlike the real marketplace).
Perfect start to my day. I listen to these podcasts at work first thing in the morning. All the news and numbers I need with just the right balance of insight and wit.
