Great morning business report

Unbiased reporting of the morning’s business news.

Please stop it with Reema’s promos on the out-go’s

I’ll resubscribe in 3 months to see if you’ve stopped putting Reema’s promos in every Marketplace podcast. Once a week I can handle but multiple times a day is too many. I can’t be alone in finding her voice painful in the promos.

Incredible Reporting but...

I’m a Marketplace listener and I took Kai’s push to subscribe to this additional show, but I swear if y’all can’t find a little more diversity for your advertising I am gone. If I hear “HI Y’ALL IM KRISSY CLARK” one more time I think my head is going to implode. I can’t hit that 30 second skip button fast enough.
