Description:

Feel like the system is rigged? Like mysterious forces choose winners and losers? Marketplace turns those questions inside out in this pop-up podcast for the next two weeks during the political conventions. Gone are the stale divisions of “left vs. right” and “big-government vs. small.” The modern era is about “insiders vs. outsiders” -- in economics, government and politics. Join the crack team of reporters at public radio’s Marketplace as they demystify those forces and bridge the gap between the insiders and outsiders of the 21st century.
