Flawed podcast reporting.

Respectfully, Barron’s March podcast about the problems surrounding Boeing’s 737 Max is itself entirely flawed, so overly-optimistic as to be pollyannaish, and just sloppily inaccurate, that it deserves a full podcast follow up retraction and update based on the actual facts and the “shoe-leather” reporting by The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Based solely on this podcast, it would seem that Barron’s goal is apparently to buttress or even cheerlead a particular cover-story stock, rather than convey Pulitzer-worthy troubling facts about a flawed Max 8 design process, reports of poor fit-and-finish upon delivery, manufacturing process flaws, fired and reprimanded employee whistleblowers, the withholding of information about the *existence* of the MCAS system in the first place, the fact that a safety warning light was only available as a paid upsell, and other reported shortcomings that were all readily available at the time of this March podcast episode’s recording. Shameful.

History of investing Tulipmania was well done

I just listened to the History of Finance episode. Well done. Am very glad Barrons is offering audio content - current and historical - for investors (long-term oriented, not traders/speculators). Please keep it up,

More content, less editing

It seems like you’re trying to sound like NPR. But NPR shows are goofy and somewhat annoying. We just want to hear financial commentary. I suggest turning down the background music (or turning it off) and just do serious, mostly unedited interviews.

Addendum 5 months later—I really want to like this podcast—I love Barron’s—but your music is killing me and I cannot bear it.
