WSJ Your Money Briefing

Reviews For WSJ Your Money Briefing

A very concise and informative podcast, always brief but to the point.
This podcast is of the adequate duration, without any unnecessary chatter
Journalists are typically nice people that are great at reporting the facts. However, this podcast drifts into opinion, and at that point our friends reveal themselves as non market participants. Please just report the facts and I’ll stick to asking uncle Ricky if I want uninformed opinion.
More an more follow the crowd reporting no new interesting and enlightening topics
Too much off topic with attempts to sway political thinking. Not interested.
The host just reads what is written down but doesn’t seem to pay attention with well formed questions during interviews. Also, STOP with the drama keywords. TERROR, FEAR, GREAD, etc. Lost respect for this podcast because of the deliberate trigger wording that you use to spike people’s emotions.
Helps me understand predatory financial motivation
The best I’ve heard in the market.
J.R Whalen does a great job
I enjoy the podcast, but wish that the discussion would go deeper/longer. Overall worth subscribing to.
Great information, easy to understand :) and not too long!
Interesting and helpful, but sometimes topics are all over the place and too much Wall Street speak.
Some topics and guests are much better and appeal to your interests much more, but even the not-so-relevant or -interesting episodes aren’t long enough to be too bad. Keep up the good work!
Stop talking about how to reduce credit card debt... you really think people with CC rolling balances listen to wsj podcasts? Know your audience...
I enjoy this podcast,, but haven been able to listen to it since the last iOS update over 2 months ago. The episodes just don’t play in either Apple podcast or pocket casts.
Good podcast

1/5

I feel like they give you advice without doing it themselves. Like they say these things without any context. Then turn around and come to find out they did it also but they’re is no repercussions for them because they ran the article.
Very good

5/5

Love this podcast
I see a lot of reviewers are really annoyed at the ads, but I don't mind them too much. Plus you can just skip over them if you want. I listen to this pod in conjunction with WSJ money beat. Great stuff!
Everyone should subscribe! Great way to get your news.
For the love of listening, please modulate and mix the ads better. I don't mind ads but do they have to blow the ear drums out. Either that or up the volume of the content itself.
Very basic information, boring.
I don't know if he's the same announcer people have been complaining amount, but Charlie Turner is a fine, professional broadcaster. Must everyone sound like a faux-casual millenial? There is a relatively unubrusive 20 second advertisement about halfway through, I can live with it (or click past it). Overall solid informational podcast.
Decent reporting until you realize the last three or four weeks of all involve some story projecting negativity because of the new president. Personally I don't care which party has a presidency I just wish you would stop blaming everything on one person who is not going to change the entire market. Change the name to "political money matters" instead of the current title. One star until you shape up
Great listen in a short amount of time
Fantastic Podcast. Informative, interesting and entertaining. Five Stars.
Good information. Don't mind the ads too much.
Doesn't seem to be refreshing with new episodes in 2015... too bad was very enjoyable.
They publish 2-3 episodes 4-5 minute episodes per day which contain 2-3 minutes worth of ads in each. That formula gets old quick, I would recommend to other listeners only is the format was changed.
WSJ has hired a new announcer: Tyrone Johnson. I think he's great. When I hear his voice on the podcast, I can't help but pay attention.
A minute of advertisement on 4 minutes of podcast...
I like the brief and concise content. I miss Jim Chesko.
What happened to posting a new podcast every weekday?? There's only two or three a week at best anymore. Listeners, DON'T WASTE YOUR TME, and advice for the Advertisers: Don't waste your money.
Excellent source of getting the overall pulse of the market & the main issues of the day. Good enough for getting your morning started.
Some okay information, but as a whole, not worth it. They do a 30 second music and headline intro. Then cut to a 15 second commercial. Back to news for 45 seconds and onto to an incredibly lame 1 minute commercial that has the creativity of a "Head-On" late night advert repeating the tag lines over and over. But if you can make it through the commercial, you will be rewarded with a final 45 seconds of so-so financial news.
Really all I hear in these slivers of "news" is how screwed the average, hard working 99% are. The real estate market is showing a come back as investors are buying up the houses and renting them out. So as rents rise it may be wise to own a home as opposed to continuing to rent. Really? 99% can't afford it, can't make ends meet, but go buy a house like the rich. Then go for the 15 year mortgage at a lower interest rate as they explain. Only a few more hundred dollars in your payment per month to lock in a lower rate. The rates are to high, LIBOR anyone? The fraud and greed in the LIBOR RIPOFF going unchecked and unregulated is astonishing. But do you hear that here? No of course not. There is 1 source for FACTUAL news and that is TYT. This terrible podcast sounds to me like, "hey you should try and do these things to help yourself be in a better financial position." Except 99% cannot because of their financial level. And taking for example the lower mortgage rate over 15 years benefits the banks the most. They get your money faster. You loose, big banks win. DON'T YOU SEE THAT??????
What happened ? You were once good but your commercialization has ruined your product. I am unsubscribing.
Not worth it to sit through a 1 minute of ads for 2 minutes of content.
this used to be a great podcast, but now is a long advert with minimal content added. Disapointing. I will unsubscribe and look elsewhere
I used to enjoy listening to this podcast daily. It was around 5 or 6 minutes every day with a 30 second commercial. Now that it has been split into a morning and an afternoon episode, its more commercials than content. I'm not going to be subscribing to this one anymore.
like the different topics. very good and tks a lot!
The podcast provides good insightful information that is interesting to listen to. It keeps you up to date. However the ads can get annoying, you grow used to them and it's free. I must say though that the bell sound at the start of the podcast is uncomfortably too loud in my opinion compared to the relative volume of the rest of the podcast.
Used to be a great podcast but they have killed it with commericals. Way, way, way too many commercials for such a small broadcast. Horrible!
I used to love this short podcast with good information. Since they have added commercials I will no longer be listening. It is under 5 mins and they have 2 commercials. I will be going somewhere else for my information, unless they remove the commercials.
Get rid of the bells at the start of the podcast! They'll break your eardrums. Other than that technical problem with this podcast, I would hightly recommend it.
I listen to a lot of podcasts and most don't have commercials. I have listened to this one a long time but now I'm deleting my subscription because of the commercials.
is the most stupid thing I've heard in a long long while!
This podcast may have useful content, but I stopped listening to it because it has too many advertisments in too short a time period and irritating music playing throughout the podcast. Hopefully the WSJ can improve upon these logistical issues.
