Practical and informative - yet highly entertaining - personal finance!
I've been an avid listener of Marketplace Money (and Marketplace) for quite some time now and have always been highly impressed at the manner in which the staff at Marketplace manages to mix practical and informative personal finance news and advice, with witty and entertaining commentary. Host Kai Ryssdal is my favorite radio personality currently on air due to his unique ability to deliver what could be very tedious information in a way that makes it fun to listen to each week. (I hate it when he's on vacation because no one else can do it like he can!) Economics Editor Chris Farrell has got to be one of the most proficient and pragmatic personal finance gurus around, offering sound (and brutally honest!) advice to listeners week after week. The Marketplace Money Mail Bag and Chris Farrell's "What's Smart, What's Stupid, and What's the Straight Story" are, to me, the most enlightening portions of the show, probably because Chris tells it like it is when it comes to managing money. Even if you think you're too young to start thinking about money management, or you think that personal finance is more boring than watching paint dry, give Marketplace Money a chance! You may be pleasantly surprised at what you hear! Plus, now it is free! Up until this week, I was paying a subscription cost at Audible to listen to it every week. It was worth every penny, but if I can save a $22.95 subscription charge, I am more than happy to do so! I promised to do something "Chris Farrell-worthy" with my new found savings.
If money interests you, and I'm sure it does, then this is the show for you. Great content and very entertaining. My personal favorite of the show is the "Educating Rico". Ya gotta love it.
An easy to listen to finance program for all.
This a wonderfully entertaining, easy to listen to program, with good practical information that I looked forward to listening to directly from their website every Saturday morning. Over the past year I have picked up a lot of good info, or have been reminded, about retirement planning and investing.The resources to follow up on the good advice in the form of books and web pages and the calulators at the website add to the shows value. Also many concerns of those under 50 are addressed as well and have given me good suggestions or conversation starters for my young adult children. Educating Rico makes us all laugh as well as we all remember climbing the same learning curve. Now that the podcast is free I am glad to be able to share it with my children so that they can get the info first hand.
