Customer Reviews


This is the kind of reporting we need! Clever, thoughtful, illuminating, and actually entertaining, too. The Uncertain Hour took something I didn’t know much about and didn’t think I cared about and made me care about it. Totally hooked. Can’t wait for the next episode!

So good! As relevant as it is engrossing!

This is what makes podcasting worthwhile - well-researched, accessible, engaging. This podcast takes what can be an impersonal, bureaucratic, and highly political chapter in a history book and grounds it in the fascinating, real people who created this story. It's also subtly humorous in a way that doesn't compromise it's integrity or the sobering subject matter.

You can't understand poverty in 2016 without understanding what happened in 1996. And this podcast has already started to help me learn and understand so much about this pivotal moment. Highly recommended!

Moving Investigative Reporting

Moving investigative reporting of political/economic issues that affect low income or marginalized segments of our society. Continues the high standards of Market Place into less traveled territory. Loved the program.
