Thank You MP Weekend!
First of all, how about cleaning up this review section?? Marketplace Weekend is NOT Marketplace Money and that doesn't make it better or worse just DIFFERENT! So how about removing 10-year-old reviews of SOME OTHER SHOW.What this IS is a great extension of the Marketplace brand. It's a show that can dive deeper and report more thoroughly than a 5 minute hourly show or a 30min daily show. It very intelligently completes the overall MP programming and, on top of that, it's just a great show. Interviews are well selected and executed. There's a good mix of heavy and light. And despite the complaints from some MP Money fans, we DO need good news reporting and analysis of the economy. This show, its reporters, producers and its host are doing a brilliant job of that. MP should do a better job of cross-promoting Weekend on the other two shows. People who appreciate them will certainly enjoy Weekend and appreciate it for what it is, not just moan about the fact that it isn't Money. But just not enough loyal MP listeners even know about this terrific show.It's such a needed balm these days to find good economic reporting that strives to be accurate and politically neutral. This show should be heard. MP needs to do more to let people know about it (and let people know that it is NOT a personal finance show.)
