Episode Description 
On this Labor Day podcast, we kick off our new series on the way technology is changing how we read. We chat with Adriene Hill, who reports on the intersection of technology and education for Marketplace's LearningCurve project, on the way tablets in the classroom affect reading. Then we head to Chicago, where health officials are using a new program to scan Twitter for mentions of food poisoning at local restaurants, no hashtag required.
