So, what else did we learn. Federal Employees jobs are not what they used to be. Federal Employees usually make less then their Private Sector counterparts. It is a trade off for job security. Federal Job security is gone and a lot of Federal employees live paycheck to paycheck. American, we are supposed to be better than this.

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! :)

I enjoy the Marketplace Morning Report podcasts immensely as they are a great summary of what is happening in the markets. However, the reason I don't give it a higher score is that they are inconsistent as to the time the podcast becomes available. I download several podcasts in the morning(at about the same time, 8 am Eastern, every work day) and take my iPod to with me so I can listen as I review the morning e-mails, etc. It is hit or miss on whether I get this podcast or not.

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!
