Episode Description 
This week, host Lizzie O'Leary and Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson explain what the EU's 'right to be forgotten' ruling means for privacy and cenorship. New York Magazine contributing editor Jessica Pressler and Business Insider’s Executive Editor Joe Weisenthal discuss the meteoric rise of penny stock CYNK, what the minutes of the last Fed meeting say about the economy and how one man raised thousands of dollars in the quest to make potato salad. The U.S. Highway Trust Fund is running low on cash. And that trust fund, in part, sponsors the roads we all drive on. What's that mean for the future of roads in America? Marketplace's Sabri Ben-Achour explains the world of  high-paying tech internships. If you could go back in time, what could you tell your 18-year-old self about money? Lauren Berger chats about common money regrets and how to avoid them. Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio tells the story of his most regretful purchase for our segment "I Can't Believe I Bought That." And finally, Whiteboard host Paddy Hirsch explains 'corporate inversion' and why it's good news/bad news.
