Amazing Content, Also Happy With Addition of Mary

My favorite part of this show are the multi-part episodes where they deep dive into a topic (like the Chicago Boys series, or the series on antitrust law.) But even though the multi-parters are few and far between, I still listen to this podcast whenever I get the chance, as it’s always high quality.

Also, I want to strongly disagree with a reviewer below: I think that Mary Childs is and was an _excellent_ addition to the show. I listened to her many times during her (seeming) trial period with The Indicator while she was still with Barrons, where she made great and insightful points about the finance world. Now on Planet Money, she brings very welcome joy and enthusiasm to the set, and of all of the recent episodes over the past month or two, I have most liked the ones where she is a host.
