From Minnesota Public Radio's Marketplace comes Make Me Smart, a new podcast about the connections between "the economy, technology, and culture." The podcast is hosted by Kai Ryssdal, a veteran business reporter who has been with Marketplace since 2001, and technology reporter Molly Wood, who currently serves as Marketplace's tech correspondent and who has previously served as a tech columnist for the New York Times. Together, Ryssdal and Wood use their expertise to investigate a number of issues relating to politics, business, personal finance, and more. In a recent episode, The Business of Moral Capitalism, the duo explore the concept of "moral capitalism," or the practice of businesses using their leverage to intervene in governmental issues. In another recent episode, they explore the history of financial conflicts of interests among U.S. presidents, dating back to George Washington.
