Every week, we borrow some terms from the financial world and ask two people to go “long” and “short” — that is bet on or against — topics in the week’s news.
This week,Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams and the New York Times’ Mike Isaac chat with guest host Molly Wood and go long and short on Pokémon, citizen journalism, and the TPP.
To listen to the full interview, tune in using the audio player above.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
