One of my favorites. It gives me what I want and need to know in the right time frame. Keep up the good work.

I really enjoy Marketplace, and have listened to this podcast a lot. I think Molly and Kai are likable people I would enjoy chatting with at a BBQ I appreciate how Marketplace is quite apolitical. However, when the pressure is off, personal biases of the hosts become apparent, and I don’t...Read full review »

Small thinkers constantly complaining well living off tax monies

I really appreciate your making this podcast happen… It’s the right mix of financial news, social commentary, keeping us sane and motivated to stay involved… great job.

Used to love this show. This has become too pretentious and unbearable to listen.
JLT1007 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/21
Marketplace used to be my go to for tempered opinions, and it just seems like the gloves are coming off. I don’t watch Network news because of the unprofessionalism, but now it seems like Marketplace is becoming more one sided with sharing their opinions. Make Me Smart is just teaching which way...Read full review »

Thank you, Kai and Molly! Our family is absolutely hooked on your podcast. We feel like we’re sitting down with close friends laughing having something cold to drink and talking about current events except you’re way more knowledgeable! Keep up the excellent work we truly love you guys! Love...Read full review »

One of my top 5 go-to podcasts that I listen to daily. SO glad they expanded to 5 days/week during COVID. Excellent content, good summary of world events and some deeper explorations into finance and tech issues. Also, Molly & Kai just have a great dynamic and Molly especially is hilarious so...Read full review »

You can learn about finance, tech, and how the world works plus get a dose of entertainment and feel better about humanity

It’s difficult to take serious prognosticators saying Uber is headed for trouble. I love these guys, I’ll probably still listen🥳

Kai and Molly, host of the Make Me Smart podcast, highlight all aspects of news and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!

This is another of the pantheon of left-wing propaganda from APM. Today they were shilling for the global corporate tax minimum without any discussion of the downsides of this. They moved into hand-wringing of cancel culture now that it is impacting people on the left. The absolute hypocrisy of...Read full review »

Many NPR shows tread a line of balanced radio. I am a huge fan of Marketplace and planet money but this misses the mark.

Wonderful show! The hosts don’t talk down to anyone, and they engage the audience to learn more themselves. One of the greatest podcasts, your life will be improved by listening to it.
heman8400 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/21
This is a wonderful show, hosted by amazingly talented people. The content is timely, interesting and informative. To all you haters out there, this show contains reasonable reporting and thoughtful discussion. You’ll not find conspiracy theories or hyperbolic nonsense here, so please go...Read full review »

I listen to Make Me Smart with Kai & Molly everyday. I really love it. The Coronovirus took it in a new and necessary direction. And while I miss the days of this podcast making us smarter about quantum computing and Bitcoin mining. The information Kai and Molly deliver 5 days a week is...Read full review »

NOt sure what happened to them but they turned this podcast into a negative, anti-American, uppity podcast that I cannot hardly stand to listen to. I used to listen regularly but the last few months have been just terrible.
Nobody kn22344 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/22/21
I forward through opening and then am almost always hooked on learning what I’ve always wanted to know even when I didn’t know I wanted to know it. And I almost always reach for a pad and pencil to write down a tech or cultural tidbit from Molly so I can follow up. This quick podcast does make...Read full review »

Kai and Molly saved my sanity during the pandemic. The daily updates, coupled with the daily make-me-smiles, helped me process what was happening and remember how much we have to be grateful for. Also, the two of them are just hilarious, in true suddenly-laugh-out-loud way. Kinda weird to say,...Read full review »

I honestly think this podcast got me through the Pandemic…and still is. It is absolutely the best podcast there is out there…

It is so hard to keep up with the important topics, actually it’s hard to know what is important sometimes. I greatly appreciate the perspective of this show and how information is delivered. My favorite is What do you want to know Wednesdays. The listener base ask great questions and this show...Read full review »

These two can’t seem to find anything they enjoy in the world. Molly’s giggling makes my ears hurt. No real opinions other that to knock everything that is not super liberal or woke.
kirkrips via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/21
I love their dynamic. I also have a secret crush on Molly.
Jonny Ballz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/05/21
I was lucky to stumble into this show. Didn’t know Kai or molly or marketplace - I love their dynamic and I learn a lot.

What happened in episode 419 about cryptocurrencies, April 26? Molly and Kai sounded like they were on drugs. One of them even said during the podcast that their producer was really mad at them. This episode was really subpar. I listen to Marketplace on the radio and I enjoy it. Please make...Read full review »

I have listened to this podcast each day for months but the pessimism is getting to be a bit overwhelming. I appreciate the smart and thought-provoking commentary but the negative spin on nearly every topic leaves me feeling worse each day.
MNminn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/21
I made this offering to appease the great algorithm.
time killler via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/21
A little too insufferably liberal at times and extremely dramatic. Molly drags this show down immensely.

Hey Kai, found a great brewery where I work in Woodland, CA. Recommend Blue Note Brewing Company’s A-Ha Ha IPA 🍻
