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

Introducing the new Marketplace.org

Marketplace Contributor Jan 20, 2016

Marketplace first went on the air on January 2, 1989 as “The International Magazine of Business and Finance.” Since then, the show has gone through several iterations of its digital home at Marketplace.org, all with the goal of keeping our listeners informed on whatever platform they use.

Whether you’re on a mobile phone, a tablet, a laptop, in your car or using a streaming service, we want to make our stuff easier to find and seamless enough to fit your schedule. Our new site is another step toward doing just that.

Here’s a look at some of the new features you’ll find:

Redesigned navigation
The new site places popular links prominently, regardless of device. We’ve placed the features our users most look for front and center, and all our coverage is in one stream. No more digging around for what you want.

Improved search
If you need to do some digging, we’ve rebuilt out search index. It’s easier than ever to find what you want and related coverage.

Infinite scroll story browsing
Once you’re done with a story, keep scrolling to see the rest of the day’s news.

Larger, more legible type
The site’s easier to read on any screen. We’ve also chosen a new typeface that’s a bit easier on the eyes.

It’s all about the personality
We think the people that work at Marketplace are great, and the new site showcases them. Author and contact information are now more prominent and accessible on every story.

Persistent player
Now you can listen and keep browsing the site with no audio interruptions.

Improved pop-out player
All our latest episodes are accessible in one player that’s been redesigned to run better on every device.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
