And this final note. If you’ve ever wished for some sort of lie detector for the campaign trail? Enter the Super PAC app. It’s the brainchild of former students from MIT’s media lab. You download it, turn on the TV, find a political ad and the app tells you who paid for that ad and where to find out whether what the ad says is true.
Let’s just hope they don’t make one that can tell whether you’re lying about your weight.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
