Econ for everyone
I have been listening to Marketplace for many years whenever I could (not my only source). The Podcast will keep me more consistently in contact. The information educates me in the many influences on the US and World economies. It has helped me with complicated financial and political decisions.
Kia and the team present these topics in an insightful and humorous manner. Always fun and useful.
This is my drive home and don’t like interruptions during broadcast. Keep up the Great Work.
Never miss it
Economics is a fascinating subject. At a it's most basic level it is about human behavior. This podcast is relevant, well produced, and entertaining.
Honestly I am surprised some listeners see the podcast as biased against Trump. Some of the facts and figures presented do not favor the president but they have been equally damaging to the Obama administration specifically Eric Holder and the lack of prosecution of Wall Street in the latest 3 part series in the subject. If a listener wants to be fed pro Trump propaganda tune into Fox need network . There are plenty of right wing podcasts out there as well.
