This is part of our daily routine. I appreciate the candor and the insights from these two exceptionally talented and hard working journalists. An incredibly worthwhile investment of my time. Thanks, Kai & Molly, for making us smart. Mad, mad love, respect, and thanks to you and the entire...Read full review »

I dont always agree with them but I always get something out of the shows. Love the casual banter and unfiltered commentary!

I used to really enjoy listening to NPR and my local public station, but since the Obama/Trump era these stations and host have become way too biased and liberal for me. I somewhat enjoy listening to Marketplace to hear a diverse view of the economy, and I really wanted to like this podcast,...Read full review »

It’s banana pants how amazing this show is! There is a reason the people who listen to this show can seem a bit cultish about our love for it (and Kai and Molly, and Kimberly). The people behind the scenes on this show are also truly top notch.

Love the content and the info!

This is the most interesting, informative and delightful podcast! Explaining the intersections of social, political, economic and personal responsibility that we all should invest in to help each other be smarter citizens and better humans.

The best podcast in existence. Molly and Kai are incredible and the time commitment is reasonable and always leaves you wanting more. Just perfect.

Everything you say concerning barriers for women going back to work is true. However 30-40% of the US population believe women’s place is in the home, so they donot see a crisis with child care etc. Plus one of the two political parties constituency are these people. So passing childcare money...Read full review »

Love these two together (Kai & Molly) such a great entertaining dynamic and so interesting to hear the stories the delve into? My favorite podcast!

They just read one article headline and give boring unimaginative commentary. They are also super biased and are literally making me dumber every time my teacher makes me listen

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 »

I liked them on their separate podcasts, but they’re overdramatized pillow talk and Molly’s complaining about anything that’s not super liberal (very biased news) is very grating.
Chitown Jamie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/21
The best pod where facts matter! Kai and Molly have broad and deep knowledge on what seems like every-thing. They inform, educate and make me smarter. They have a wonderful dynamic and on most days make me laugh or at least smile. Stay curious! #historymatters

I found this podcast at the beginning of the Pandemic and it has seen me through.

Always Awesome!! I do wish each individual was roughly the same block of time on the Space Time Continuum, but I will not deny the pattern of Tuesday’s Deep Dive and Friday’s Cocktail Time leaves me strangely satisfied while wanting more.. Also Molly; which Game are you Killing it these days??
rwillson1969 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/17/21
Authentic & informed - great show, great team. Listen & you’ll be smart!

Please keep it going!

Molly and Kai. And you redeemed yourselves (Kai, we’re looking at you) coal etc 22 transactions >$1M each??? I just wish more people listened to you ally
MinnieMarie88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/11/21
I used to really enjoy Mike and Mollys’ pod cast and their insights into current events and economics. However i find the show very biased recently leaning heavily on far left viewpoints and a lot of stated opinions. I know a lot people feel strongly about what happens in this country, but I feel...Read full review »

Feel good podcast despite discussing … the *real* state of the world. Seriously. I love the topics, format, and the hosts, Molly & Kai. I learn; I laugh; I come closer to making sense of it all. Please keep it up.
DelBttrfly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/21
You’re doing awesome. Keep up the excellent work.
Christopher_F-M via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/21
Seems pretty stanch left wing hosts even though they seem great. Just a bit too overt for me as an independent voter. Also it seems like every episode is about climate change. Definitely a downer most days. I get that it’s important but it’s a lot.

(If this is a one star review then I am so sorry I meant for it to be a five star if it isn’t) Hi! I love your podcast. I’m sorry about the haters. But there are always haters, but as long as you think your doing a good job, then you’re doing well! Also, which guest is always sniffing into the...Read full review »

I always used to look forward to the next podcast. It was a good balance between being informational and entertaining. Unfortunately it has become the NPR version of Regis and Kelly/Kathy Lee that is even more self indulgent than Regis and Kelly/Kathy Lee were. Maybe if it went back to the...Read full review »

The podcast has a long history of degenerating into a vapid gigglefest when Kai is away but Ep. 490 reached new lows. Turned it off halfway through, stinging with shame that I had ever recommended MMS to friends. Just let the show itself take a holiday - stop ruining your brand with these insipid...Read full review »

Who is the guest, not Kimberly, who’s sniffing repeatedly into the mic? Snotty sniffs! While talking about Covid risk. Ugh. And also talking over Kimberly repeatedly. Can’t take it. Stop!

Small thinking hosts constantly in a state of low energy panic. They exemplify everything you expect from people living off government money.
Jhwahaha via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/14/21
Two worst fill in hosts ever. Sound like a couple of giddy teenagers. Couldn’t finish listening to the end. Love Molly and Kai.
slugwelder via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/21
One of my favorites. It gives me what I want and need to know in the right time frame. Keep up the good work.

An easy way to learn a lot!

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.
gharki via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/21
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 »
