WSJ having a political title to this podcast, that is really subjective, is both unbecoming to its company name and revealing as to its leanings.

even the staunchest ricardian might pause at depending on an invading nation for the steel it uses to make its tanks. war is stupid, much better to trade, but humans are not yet angels. the more democratic the trading partner the less we have to worry (in theory) which doesn't really apply to China.

I've been listening to Marlo's ludicrous cupcake story six times a day for weeks now. Haven't you got any other ads ? It's bad enough that you have a four minute podcast with two one minute ads. Do they both have to be the repetitive yet touching Horatio Alger story of Marlo Scott and her brave use of credit to bring cupcakes to the hungry masses ? Show us some mercy and rotate your ads !

This podcast is a must-listen for me every morning, and along with the Gray Lady's "front page" podcast, provides a short, to-the-point summary of "what's news" in today's paper, first-thing in the morning. The narrators are good, although they sometimes speak a little to fast. But I'd recommend it to anyone who considers themselves a "news junkie."
