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.
