Fantastic

The Indicator is how I start every morning. I listen while I get dressed and I always learn something new. The hosts are engaging, informative, and entertaining. I can't count the number of things I've learned from this show, but I'm sure some of my friends will tell you it's too many when I share with them. If you're looking to learn more about Money, the economy, or the job market, I highly suggest a listen.

Great but a little biased

This podcast is great and I recommend it to lots of people. I know NPR is very politically left but it doesn’t bother me too much. In one of the recent episodes the host actually said women are cheaper to hire than men because the get paid less. This was said as it if it fact. The truth is women on average get paid less but that is not women doing the same job as men. The difference in pay between women and men in the same job with the same experience and qualification is almost none. But more uneducated men choose jobs like construction while uneducated women might pick retail. Construction pays $20 starting out and retail might pay $9. If the hosts know the difference and lie to their audience as part of their political agenda then shame on them. If they never looked far enough into the statistics then I really hope they do. I love your podcast keep it neutral please.

Great show, usually

I love the hosts and the stories. Unfortunately the hosts seem to think that recording people eating makes for great audio. Want to hear someone eating an apple into a microphone up close to his mouth? Then do subscribe!
