marketplace“Marketplace” announced Monday that it would start a podcast called “Make Me Smart with Kai and Molly” featuring Kai Ryssdal and Molly Wood.

“Our ultimate goal at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country,” said Ryssdal in a statement. “Right now it’s especially important that we work together to identify and understand what’s truly newsworthy. This is exactly what Make Me Smart does.”

The goal of the podcast is to focus on analyzing and understanding, not on headlines and talking points. It’s meant to be an ongoing conversation with other experts and the combined expertise of the listening audience.

“Make Me Smart is really a passion project for both of us,” said Wood in a statement. “It’s taking what Kai and I already do at Marketplace and putting it into a new format that allows us to go beyond what we can do on air. This podcast will let us press pause on what’s newsworthy and dive even deeper into the topics that people not only want, but need to hear about.”

The format of the podcast will allow the hosts to combine their expertise with insights from influential leaders, big thinkers and everyday doers in the economy. Together, they’ll dig deeper and combine facts and experts with experiences and discussion to transform information into insight.

The first podcast episode will be available Jan. 24, followed by new episodes released every Tuesday.
