Marketplace for Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Republicans in the House and Senate are debating what exactly should be in a deal to find a way out of the debt ceiling and shutdown mess. Still, any delay would set up a new fight on the sequester. And while most Americans are worried about what might happen if the U.S. defaults on  its debt obligations on Thursday, many argue the damage has already been done. Finally, Northwestern will hold its first peanut-free football game – in deference to those with peanut allergies.
