Great show, I used to listen to it when I came on npr.
Now I'll listen when im on. I love the news it presents on business, economics, and money. The best of its kind.
A good taste of Marketplace. I am not able to listen at the "right" time to catch Marketplace over the air so this is a good replacement. It would be great if they could put the full broadcast up! I would even contribute to my local station. Honest! :)
Another great show from the Marketplace folks!
The Marketplace Morning Report is another fantastic show from American Public Media, showcasing the breaking business and personal finance news stories for the coming day. At just under fifteen minutes long (on NPR in the mornings, the podcast is even shorter than that!), I am always left wanting more. I would love for the Marketplace Morning Report to be as long as Marketplace! 30 minutes would be perfect. I won't knock the Marketplace Morning Report down a star for being too short, though. Like Kai Ryssdal (host of Marketplace and Marketplace Money), Marketplace Morning Report host Scott Jagow has the knack for turning what could be very bland business and personal finance news into stories that anyone would be interested in listening to. He has a perfect combination of knowledge and wit that really helps to keep a person awake on that early morning drive to the office. Unlike Marketplace and Marketplace Money, the Marketplace Morning Report has always been a free podcast. (The other two were previously only available via a paid subscription through Audible.) If you only have 10 minutes to listen to a few money-related stories, check out the Marketplace Morning Report. You probably won't be sorry you did!
