Marketplace has a new podcast for kids, "Million Bazillion!" EPISODE OUT NOW

Need to vent?

Marc Sanchez Nov 16, 2011

If you have a landline and it’s election season, then you’re probably gearing up to have your patience tested with a call from robo-President Obama or robo-Mitt Romney or robo-any-political-cause du jour. If you feel helpless against the calls, fear not. The website will call candidates and political parties on your behalf to give them a taste of their own medicine. The calls do cost you money, from $0.99 for some Representatives up to $20 to call all Democrats in the House. Robocall the robocallers. Feel better?
