He’s Back: David Johnson On PBS Podcast

Business analyst and D CEO contributor David Johnson, who recently left NPR’s Marketplace radio show after nearly two decades, has resurfaced on the web with ex-Marketplace host David Brancaccio, who now hosts the PBS TV program Now. Johnson and Brancaccio, who used to converse weekly about the economy on the radio show, have recorded a “trial” podcast focusing on this week’s financial storm. The podcast should be posted on the Now web site soon, says Johnson, who’s characteristically upbeat about things. “After today’s” bailout proposals, he says, “the average investor ought to have the same sense of well-being as someone who’s been shot at–and missed.”

    Marketplace has never been the same since Brancaccio left. He had meaty financial market substance that he was able to communicate to those less sophisticated in the area. Ever since, they seem to have taken the opposite approach – take unsophisticated unfinancial topics and put a financial spin on them – not the same, not useful, and not worth the time of the likes of David Johnson.

    Dear, do you even know what a podcast is?

    Dear Glenn:

    Correction. PBS is the television broadcast network. NPR is the radio network. PRI (Public Radio International) produces and distributes “Marketplace.” KERA 90.1, the NPR affiliate, airs the show at 6:30 pm weekdays.

    Got that?

    Noted and fixed, Fact Checker. Thanks.
