A geek's dream come true!
I've been paying for the Marketplace podcast on Audible for as long as I can remember, and it has been worth every penny, so imagine my delight to find out it is now available free of charge! Marketplace, and its once a week sister show, Marketplace Money, are both entertaining and informative. Kai Ryssdal has to be one of the finest radio personalities on air today, period. He has the perfect mix of smarts, quick wit and charisma that really makes the avid news fan want to stop and pay attention. Kai is the reason I got hooked on Marketplace and Marketplace Money, and the fantastic reporting week after week by everyone on the Marketplace staff is the reason I keep coming back for more! I can now get my Marketplace fix free of charge! That fact alone deserves 5 stars!! Kudos to the Marketplace team for creating a top notch talk radio show high-quality enough for me to be willing to pay for, and for doing the appropriate Marketplace thing by making it cost nothing to download. I promise Chris Farrell (Economics Editor and Personal Finance Expert) that I will put that extra $22.95 for my subscription into my retirement savings.
This podcast continually amazes me. Not only is it entertaining and informative, but the topics range all over the spectrum of our society. And they manage to squeeze all this news and information into a fairly brief podcast. At the end of each one I feel more in touch with the world. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Marketplace is so money, it doesn't even know it
Marketplace has been my PM drive home choice since David hosted the show (no, the other one). Kai and the current gang of reporters are the strongest ever, and now I grab the podcast at work and listen on the way home, no matter when I leave the office. I don't have to miss a thing. THIS, and The Onion :-), showcase what the deilvery method of podcasting can be; It's great for listeners, great for content providers, and great for advertisers (er, I meant underwriters. Those 30-second mentions with full contact information and product descriptions on NPR are not ads, you see. That would be illegal).
