    "Concise, literally packed with information"

    I am an NPR addict, and this is one of my favorite shows. At only 30 minutes, it packs more information into that time span than many shows do in two hours. Topics run the whole gamut, always revealing the financial implications of current events. Economics bored me to tears in college, but David Brown has taken the efforts of his predecessor David Brancachio (sp?) to a new level of interest, relevance, and usefulness.

    "Simply Put"

    The quality of Marketplace can be said with just those two words. While Marketplace does not have interviews with everyone some of the magazines do, Marketplace does offer interviews with the people that count. Simply put. I am an avid listener of the show and enjoy every episode. Their brief editorials tell me the trend of the market, while not boring me with details that are meaningless. Simply put.

    If you are the type of person that can go through hours of statistical information and pages of graphs, and you don't like not have all the facts, you are not the type of person who will enjoy Marketplace. Marketplace gives an overview of the market, gets a few opinions from people who know what they are talking about and they tell all, simply put.

    "Subscription vs Website"

    Marketplace is a good program that tries to summarize what happened daily in the world. It is published every day at around 6:00pm so it is useful for somebody that wants to find out what happen in the market by the time he/she is leaving the office or going back home (or if you don't go back home and watch the news maybe it could be useful for the next morning). But if this is the case it will be probably cheaper to listen to the normal radio program (but maybe you can't find a good program, depending on where do you live). If you sit down in front of your computer your entire day it will be probably better to go to www.marketplace.org and listen to the program that they offer there for free. When you buy it from audible.com it will be a 30 minutes program (from that 5-10 minutes will be commercials). What you get from Marketplace's website is around 10 minutes long, so it is a little bit shorter. I prefer putting my money to more books than to this subscription. Of course this is only my opinion.

    "Whoever Said Markets Were Boring?"

    Marketplace takes business news - normally pretty dry stuff - and makes it peppy, exciting and witty.
    The segments are short and concise, giving you a quick survey of the markets, plus more than a few chuckles to boot.
    The segments are interspersed with high-powered music clips from bands like Cake, Eminem and jazz artists like Reuben Wilson.
    Every Friday, there's a crackling repartee with a stockbroker in Dallas, plus a few more jokes than usual.
    All in all, my favorite NPR program. Period.

    "Best Subscription Program"

    This is simply my favorite Subscription Program available on Audible.com. It is the best produced and always has the best sampling of content.

    "Good, Solid Journalism"

    What I really like about Marketplace is their good, solid journalism. They don't report a lot of hype, and they actually investigate the assertions made by companies, governments, etc. to provide the listener with the necessary context and data to understand the issue. Always a great resource to understand the top issues and their financial impacts.

    "Listen with your Left ear."

    Marketplace, like most of the NPR programs, has a decidedly left leaning posture. I had a one month subscription and left, sorry, after that. I'm still not sure how they did it, but after listening I continually had the feeling that I wasn't getting the whole story. It may be your cup of tea, but it was a waste of time for me.
