Save Your Money

I really wish this program were better - Audible needs to offer what Sound Money promises - but this isn't it. The program seems to be oriented to those who know nothing (what's better-whole life or term?) and in each issue of the 1 month subscription I purchased, offered absolutely wrong information. In one, the interviewee insisted, over the protestation of the host, that investors had to buy government bonds through financial advisors, and "expect to pay a fee" (buy government bonds at, no fee). In the latest issue, the interviewee from Rolling Stone insists that those who own iPOD can only hear music purchsed from Apple, and are "locking yourselves in" to only hearing Apple-purchsed music - false again, Apple plays the ubiquitous MP3 format, and converts WMA files as well. Then...there is the music - blaring and distorted, 20 decibles above the voice track, like a late-night infomertial. If you listen to audible while exercising, you can't listen to this, as you will constantly grab for the volume control to protect your hearing. Audible needs a GOOD investment periodical, but this one is not it - save your money.

Money news for everyone!

this is a good NPR program. I have been a listener of MarketPlace for several years and love it! This is like the weekend version of Marketplace. Yes, people do give their opinion , but that is the design of the program. it is not necessarily financial advice only , but finances taken from the view and for the average person. the one that does not read the wallstreet journal ( very informative , but technical) . this is definately worth the read.
