Why can’t she just speak normally? She talk in 100mph bullet pints. Stopped listening.

I’m going back in a little while I got a couple of errands done I got a little while before I’m going back in to the house and I got a little bit of work to get ready to

Hello, I never miss an eposode of the podcast. Top notch, consistently. Howver, it would be made perfect if the 3+ min or so intro to each show with previews of later material, was cut back to <60 seconds. It is widely acknowledged that overly lengthy podcast intros overly annoy loyal...Read full review »

Like listening to this Podcast then they went subscription paywall on us, then dropped their topics off a cliff just scrolling through looking at them.

I really enjoy listening to the weekly episode of Money Talks. The topics are always very interesting and informative. Absolutely worth getting a subscription to Economist Podcasts +!

I find the show so-so but the deal killer for me is the pedantic delivery from people that sound like they’re old and out of touch. Perhaps the writers deserve some of the blame. It’s not necessary to constantly tell us that artificial intelligence is AI or that virtual reality is VR or augmented...Read full review »

As a long time subscriber to The Economist and a frequent podcast listener, the switch to podcast + is terrible - it requires iOS 17, which my device doesn’t use.
dq43$ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/15/23
The other Economist podcasts are all brilliant in their own way but this dynamic trio of Alice Fulwood, Mike Bird and Tom Lee-Devlin are by far my favourite Economist Podcast Hosts. Great chemistry. Utterly enjoyable to listen to.

Slipping off behind a paywall… good luck.
BjornLouser via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/20/23
You should do an episode on the economics of podcasts. Do ads not provide enough revenue? Why switch to a subscription model? What will be the impact on number of subscribers? Are podcast listeners more or less likely to read your news articles than non-listeners? Will podcast subscription fees...Read full review »

They are quite knowledgeable and usually bring interesting and useful perspectives through their guests. But as listeners we are usually confronted with personal stories and details of the hosts that are besides the point. They seem to confuse their reporting with being media stars, presumably...Read full review »

Diverse and relevant topics touching diferentes industries, marketing, cultures…very entertaining
amo este dino via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 09/26/23
It’s a real shame you’re switching to a paid model and taking podcasts away. You can do that but you’re losing much of your audience when you do. If it was just new content I’d be OK with it but the fact you’re taking away material is ridiculous. If you’re losing money on the podcasts just admit...Read full review »

Here’s my new stat of the week: 100. That’s the percent I will not be paying for the new Economist podcast subscription.
Shooter Bos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/15/23
Is the advertisement not enough?
Luise1995 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 09/14/23
Their reasoning given for making the show paid is really weak. The projects cited aren’t much of an expansion on what they have right now, and it’s very, very hard to see why they would need that magnitude of resource input. There are countless podcasts that go into much greater depth, are of...Read full review »

Well worth following for those like me who are interested in economics, but not all expert. Well presented, topical, and valuable info.
shafflo via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 09/01/23
What happened to this show? It used to be so good but lately it is awful. The 3 hosts sound like children the way they giggle at each other’ silly comments. And their “reporting” is completely shallow. A recent episode on the benefits of a college education was torture to listen to (I didn’t make...Read full review »

Great show. Great hosts. Go ATM.

I have been listening to this podcast for years. Thank you for great content

Extremely informative, entertaining and relaxed.

As a Australian, who has lived there for 5+ years before coming to live in the Arabian gulf, i find this extremely interesting and relevant to everywhere i’ve been to. I many be 14 but its explained in such a way that i can understand it very well. It talks about such important topics and...Read full review »

Would he great to come to the point faster and have more content instead of the long intros! Otherwise I really enjoy this Podcast
clk1984vna via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 04/27/23
Overall I enjoy listening to Money Talks, but was disappointed by the presenter's simplistic characterisation of crypto, lumping it all into one and conflating it to a "meme stock". A few bad actors like FTX do not mean all crypto is a "meme stock" and The Economist should...Read full review »

Love the podcast, this is a wonderful complement to reading the issue each week for more flavor on the market, business, and economic topics.
Jhwade via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/19/23
Pod is going from strength to strength - keep going!
MrDrone1324 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/08/23
AND Alice’s voice. I also like that you expand on topics like climate change because these things DO affect the large global economies of the world. Let the haters hate - you all are AWESOME. I feel smarter with every episode and this gets me out of my personal finance bubble and into a larger...Read full review »

Great episode but so surprised that First Republic Bank was the one ad we had to listen this week 🙈

Amazing podcast!
Juana Valentina Galeano via Apple Podcasts · Colombia · 03/06/23
Having someone (Henry Gao) with an anglicized name from Singapore does not guarantee a non pro-China stance, seeing that Gao actually did his undergraduate degree at the China Youth University of Political Studies, China. The host also lets his own bias shows when he intimated that the US is...Read full review »

Informative and very funny don’t miss the stats of the week section. These three guys try very hard to prove that this science can be not so dismal at the end. Mauro from Fiumicino.

While their understanding of the driver of the “gender pay gap” is incomplete- I appreciate this show and believe you will also.
moving on-missu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/11/22
Too much joking and irrelevant banter. Moderation, please! This is why I am shifting to the FT.
Nadia_Tunisia via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/17/22
This podcast has gone so far downhill since it was launched several years ago by Zanny Minton Beddoes and Greg Ip. If you want to have a podcast about enviroinmental issues, create a separate one (and call it "To a Lesser Degree" and then cancel it because it's not popular). Don't...Read full review »

Wow
I love money talks. Quality hosts. Great analysis.
XavWasTaken via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/01/22
Long time listener. Usually love the content. Not a fan of the new format. Cut down on the banter. Just ask the experts and/or lead journalists for their opinions. Having three people go round robin with a couple words each to complete a sentence is the pits. Doing it multiple times an episode is...Read full review »

Excellent analysis of global economic and financial scene. Good repartee among the hosts, too.
Brahma081 via Apple Podcasts · India · 08/11/22
I was so skeptical that cryptocurrency regulation would be something I would care about, but Alice’s perspective and getting to hear from real people who lost OMG so much money… now I want to know more
StephenLovesPods via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/22
Every episode of this show is like getting to hang out with my three smartest finance friends, except none of my friends in finance are as fun as these three! Would honestly love like… little episodes with one host like reacting to finance indicators or something because you all are so good at...Read full review »

I love this show for the way it makes sure I understand what’s important in the world of traditional finance and money, but also new things as well. Honestly always thought crypto was just for young finance guys in fleece vests, but real people are using this stuff - need to pay attention and...Read full review »
chabonic via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/28/22
The old format of the show was similar to “The Intelligence”, ie 3 unrelated topics in little depth. I guess they wanted to copy “Checks and Balance” by doing deep dives, but it just doesn’t seem to work with the current team. The topics feel a bit uninspired and the hosts lack depth and...Read full review »
TEMP169 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 07/18/22
For a show that typically focuses on a single economic story, it delivers a fascinating array of interesting topics. Even if I don’t initially think I’ll be interested, I give the show a try and end up pleasantly surprised. A necessary part of my podcast life.
Dr. Duru via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/22
please allocate more time to speakers in your interviews than to yourselves and your useless banter…
